Post-game: Brian Kelly
Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick announces head coach Brian Kelly's new contract Brian Kelly's opening comments "Here's what I know. To win football games at the BCS level, you got to take care of the football, and we did that today. You have to keep points down on defense. We continue to do that. The third element is your special teams. Although at times, we like to execute better, we were able to flip field position with our punt game. We also saw ten freshmen play today. We look to build. We will have to be better in all phases of the game next week vs. Michigan." -- Specifics of his contract -- Today's performance by Tommy Rees -- DaVaris Daniels' injury -- Jaylon Smith's performance -- Defense communication -- The play of Prince Shembo -- The play of DaVaris Daniels -- Subbing Cam McDaniel late in the game/ running through the gauntlet at practice -- Losing momentum down the stretch -- Assessment of inside linebacker play
