Notre Dame's Shamrock Series returns to Texas for the first time in four years this fall when the Irish collide with Arizona State at the palatial Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
Arizona State had an up-and-down first season under nomadic head coach Todd Graham, but finished strong with a win at Arizona and a demolition of Navy in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl to close at 8-5. The offense resembled more of the prolific attack Graham's Tulsa teams displayed rather than the one that struggled in Graham's one season at Pittsburgh.
The teams have not met since a home-and-home series in 1998 and 1999, the only two meetings between the programs. The Irish are very familiar with Graham, however, as they'll be facing him for the third time in four years, all at different schools.
The Sun Devils began spring practice on Tuesday, leading up to their spring game on Apr. 13. Let's take an early look at what Arizona State has to offer in 2013.
