Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family:
It’s going to be a busy 2nd half of November, so I’ll get right to the posts …
Army (Shamrock Series) Game Watch
Saturday, November 12th, 12:30 pm (Pacific Time)
Ok, let’s be honest. It’s hard to be confident about any of the matchups left this season. Normally, the Army game would be one where you’d be watching the second half out of the corner of your eye while you multitask on socializing with fellow Irish fans. The last time Army beat the Irish was in 1958, and we lead the series 38-8-4, having won the last 14. This season though… Army comes into this game 5-4, boasting the #2 rushing offense in the country (359 yards / game) and the #13 scoring defense (18.1 PPG). Sure, they have weaknesses, they’re dead last (#128 in passing offense) and they’re tied for #118 with a 50-50 field goal record. Still, the Irish are 14 point favorites from a betting line perspective, and we’re nearly tied for scoring offense (ND is #59/29.9 PPG and Army is #61/29.3 PPG), so this thing might actually be a game that will come down to the 4th quarter. Its going to be an amazing weather weekend in San Diego, so come enjoy your early afternoon with fellow Irish fans, have some lunch and a beverage (or two) and then enjoy the warm evening weather savoring (hopefully) Irish victory #4. You don’t need to be a club member, ND grad or even San Diego resident to join us, you just need to love ND football. ** Important Note: Prospect Bar has changed its name to Rooftop La Jolla, but the address is the same. Here’s how to find us: Rooftop La Jolla (formerly Prospect Bar & Grill) – Downtown La Jolla • East Village Tavern + Bowl – Downtown San Diego
