Notre Dame must avoid Halloween nightmare against Navy

Amazing to think that Notre Dame might lose three in a row to Navy if they lose today at South Bend.

This is the game that will be played in Dublin next year and ND will not want to go there losing three in a row.

No service team has ever won three in a row against the Irish, but with this year's mistake prone team all bets are off.

Six turnover in the red zone shows why Notre Dame are in such trouble this year with an unimpressive 4-3 record.

Sloppy execution has become a trademark of Brian Kelly's teams unfortunately.

Last week's defeat against USC was the worst, with Dayne Crist's fumble on the one yard line leading to a fourteen point turnaround.

One wonders what Halloween horrors await the Irish this year.

Last year Navy defeated Notre Dame in one of the most boring football games ever played at the Meadowlands.

The Navy game of ground grinding only makes for poor viewing.

But against a Notre Dame side that is still having problems against the run it could pay off again.

Brian Kelly will surely have the troops motivated after the USC slur that the team gave up inthe closing minutes last week.

Notre Dame need to come out throwing, find Michael Floyd and then impose the ground game.

If they do they can win 28-14.

And head to Dublin next year for the Emerald Isle Classic with their head held high.
