Here's what it looked like from the second row in Section 1 of Notre Dame Stadium when the Navy's Blue Angels did their "DELTA FORMATION" fly-over of the "House That Rock Built!"
You'll see and hear the National Anthem played by the Band of the Fighting Irish and the perfectly timed Blue Angels fly over -- followed by a second fly-over just north of the stadium. Enjoy!

A huge 4th down stop of a reverse by freshman Jaylon Smith with 1:08 left on the clock -- closed out a 38 - 34 win for the IRISH over the Naval Academy.
Notre Dame had only three possessions in the second half -- thankfully, the IRISH scored TD's each time -- as they erased a 20 - 17 deficit. Here's the initial reaction from the media:

How often do you think the NBC cameras will be on David Robinson this afternoon while his son Corey's Notre Dame Fighting Irish take on his alma mater the Naval Academy? And, what hat will he have on?
You just have to know that Dan Hicks will be "waxing poetically" about this family dynamic...
Here's the media's spin on this so far:
