Air Force vs. Notre Dame: Live Score, Highlights and Analysis

Connor Killoren@@Connor_KillorenSenior Analyst IOctober 8, 2011

Notre Dame 59, Air Force 33 -- FINAL

 

The Air Force Falcons have made their way to South Bend to take on Brian Kelly and the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame.

It's the first visit to Notre Dame Stadium for the Falcons since a 41-24 upset of the Irish in 2007. 

Like I mentioned in my preview article of this game, there are a number of key matchups to watch during Saturday's game.

How will Notre Dame's defense perform against Air Force's third-ranked rush-defense? Will Air Force be able to contain a Notre Dame offense that has gone over 500 yards on three separate occasions?

We'll get the answers to those questions shortly.

This will be a tell-tale game for Brian Kelly and co. after winning three consecutive games following a 0-2 start.

A loss would be devastating, but a win would likely propel Notre Dame back into the Top 25 rankings.
