Irish getting it done on the ground

Notre Dame capped off their 56-14 win against Navy Saturday with an impressive 7 rushing touchdowns.

The 7 rushing touchdowns mark the most rushing touchdowns for the Irish since 1992.

Brian Kelly talked a lot about finding consistency in the offense this week. The Irish quarterbacks were 19 of 25 for 260 yards (1TD / 1Int). On the ground, the Irish rushed 35 times for 182 (5.2 avg.) and 7TDs. The Irish will take on Wake Forest Saturday.

For Navy, it extended their losing streak to 6 games. Since 2003, Navy has won at least 8 games each season.  This year they are 2-6. Navy takes on Troy this Saturday as they try to right the ship [yes, that is a poor pun]. 

Below is video of Navy head coach Ken Niumatalolo speaking after the loss to Notre Dame.

Video: Lane Kiffin post-game

For those of you that didn't get to watch, last night's Stanford vs. USC game was a great one.

You've probably already seen the highlights; but if not, we've posted a video box at the very bottom of this article. Note that we find it extremely odd that ESPN doesn't offer a single highlight video showing the final play of regulation (the one for which Kiffin expresses his "disappointment" with the refs for the way they handled the call). 

Anyway, truly a great game. USC should have had a chance to win it at the end (the receiver should have gone down and called the timeout rather than trying to make it to the sideline...but that's easy for us to say after the fact). It was tied at the end of regulation. 3 good OT periods; until USC's freshman running back fumbled near the goal line in the 3rd OT and Stanford got the win to remain unbeaten.

Quick note: Stanford still has 4 games (at Oregon State, then 3 home games...Oregon, Cal and Notre Dame). 

First video below is Lane Kiffin post game. Jump to the 1:50 mark to hear Kiffin express his frustration with the how the refs handled the end of regulation.

Then some ESPN highlights from the game.

1st 4 game winning streak...ever

It's hard not to continue to be happy for Willie Taggart's guys at Western Kentucky. 

Yesterday, it took overtime; but WKU got it's 4th straight win (31-28 over Louisiana Monroe) for the first time since the school began playing announced it's intention to play in the FBS. Yes, that's only been since the 2007 season; but still, 4 straight wins for this program is huge. 

This is a program that went 4-32 over the last 3 seasons. They are now 4-4 this season, 4-1 in the Sun Belt. 

"How about this, we'll spot you 7 points and skip the 3rd qtr."

Ole Miss is having a rough season. They are 2-6 overall, 0-5 in the SEC.

Houston Nutt's guys are ranked #103 in scoring offense and #86 in scoring defense. 

The most puzzling thing we've noticed, and Nutt has as well, is that the Rebels are just getting blanked in the 3rd quarter this season.

In their game vs. Georgia neither team scored in the 3rd. However, in their 4 other SEC games, the Rebels have been outscored 70-0 in the 3rd quarter (yes, that 17.5 points per game). 

Ole Miss travels to Kentucky this weekend.
