Notre Dame line prepares for physical Stanford

Posted: Updated:
SOUTH BEND -

The Notre Dame offensive line is tired of being pushed around by the Stanford defense.

The No. 17 Cardinal (4-1) have held the Irish to a total of 101 yards rushing the last two times they've played, winning both games by two touchdowns or more. The Fighting Irish (5-0) are ranked No. 7 now, off to their best start in a decade, and are eager to show times have changed.

Left tackle Zack Martin says the game gives the Irish a chance to show they have a tough, physical and consistent line.

Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly believes the Irish are ready to go against a Stanford squad that ranks sixth in the nation in rushing defense.
