Notre Dame completes home slate vs. Army

Nov 14, 2006 - 10:17 PM Army (3-7) at No. 6 Notre Dame (9-1), 2:30 pm EST

SOUTH BEND, Indiana (Ticker) - Sixth-ranked Notre Dame looks to complete a sweep of the service academies when it plays Army in its final home game of the season.

The Fighting Irish (9-1) routed Navy here on October 28, 38-14, and posted a comfortable 39-17 win at Air Force last weekend.

Heisman Trophy candidate Brady Quinn completed 14-of-19 passes for 207 yards and four touchdowns without an interception against the Falcons and has thrown for 2,786 yards and 29 TDs with just four picks all season.

The win was Notre Dame's seventh in a row. With a triumph Saturday, the Irish would improve to 10-1 for the first time since 2002 and the fifth time in school history. It also would give Notre Dame 19 victories over the past two campaigns - their most over a two-year span since recording 21 wins in 1992-93 under Lou Holtz.

Notre Dame, which visits fourth-ranked Southern California next week, has won 12 straight meetings against Army since a 1958 loss to grab a 36-8-4 series lead. The teams have not met since 1998.

The Black Knights (3-7) have not played since a 43-7 loss to Air Force on November 3.

Freshman quarterback Carson Williams went just 8-of-16 for 62 yards with four interceptions for Army, which committed six turnovers as it surrendered at least 40 points for a second straight game.

Army has committed a national-worst 32 turnovers (20 interceptions and 12 fumbles), which its opponents have converted into 99 points.
