Brian Kelly's Fighting Irish will take a four-game winning streak into next season's opener against the University of South Florida -- an opponent which is coached by former "domer" Skip Holtz. Notre Dame's four-game winning streak is the longest win streak -- carried over into a new season -- in the last 18 years! You have to go back to the 1992 season when the Irish won their last six games and then won their Cotton Bowl game -- a seven game winning streak to end a season -- to find a longer winning streak entering a new season. ND Fans will recall, that this team was coached by Lou Holtz, Skip's Dad.
Do you think November's have been tough on the Irish football program?
Congratulations Irish on "finishing" a football season!!!!
