The 2005 season will grant Notre Dame FIVE consecutive home games for the first time since 1999 when Davie's team finished the year 5-7. The Irish went 4-1 in those five games however beating the likes of #23 oklahoma and USC...This year's five game home stand features a showdown with Navy, making the Midshipmen the only school to appear in all three times the Irish Schedule has permitted such an extended stay in South Bend...Nobody though, will face the challenge that Knute Rockne took on in 1929, playing all nine games on the road with Notre Dame stadium under construction and coaching the team to a 9-0 record...The Irish are are a combined 32-16 (.667) in seasons that send them away from home for at least four of their first six games, including wins in the Liberty Bowl and Orange bowl following the 1983 and 1989 campaigns respectively...Notre Dame is averaging a solid 43 percent on third down this season (26 of 61) while holding its opponents to a 25.9 percentage 14 of 54 which is ranked 12th in the nation.
