Navy-Notre Dame rivalry shifts to Ireland

Posted: Updated:
ANNAPOLIS, Md. -

The storied rivalry between Navy and Notre Dame is no longer a one-sided affair.

Notre Dame ran off an NCAA-record 43 straight wins in the series before Navy ended the run with a 46-44 victory in 2007.

The Midshipmen beat Notre Dame again on the road in 2009, and a victory in 2010 gave Navy's senior class three victories in the series - a feat only accomplished twice before, in 1937 and 1964.

Notre Dame rebounded from the 2010 loss to beat Navy 56-14 last year, and the Irish hope to build on that win Saturday when the rivalry resumes in Dublin, Ireland.

Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo is 2-2 against Notre Dame.
