The Notre Dame's Fighting Irish have won their match in Dublin’s Aviva Stadium against Navy, 50 – 10.
Brian Kelly’s Notre Dame team overwhelmed Navy in the first half, ending in a 27-3 lead. The Irish defense continued to pound Navy only allowing for one touchdown.
Trey Miller, Navy’s quarterback, did hit 14 of 19 pass attempts in the air, with a new move from coach Ken Niumatalolo, but the team averaged less that three yards per carry.
Theo Riddick and George Atkinson ran for first-quarter touchdowns, and tightend Tyler Eifert caught a five-yard touchdown pass.
Tuitt scooped up quarterback Trey Miller's fumble and rumbled to the end zone to put the Irish up 27-0 in the second quarter.
Navy kicked a 26-yard field goal before halftime and opened the second half with a three-pass drive capped by Shawn Lynch's 25-yard grab to make it 27-10. Atkinson and Riddick replied with two of Notre Dame's three second-half touchdowns.
In the second half Notre Dame kept up the pressure on the Midshipmen. Navy will have to regroup and reassess before they play against Penn State next week.
