Brian Kelly and the Fighting Irish are out to prove that there’s plenty of magic left in Notre Dame Football tickets.
The Irish shocked the college football world last season by navigating through a treacherous regular season unbeaten and earning a berth in the BCS National Championship Game against Alabama. Notre Dame was no match for the Crimson Tide, but the blowout loss to Alabama will fuel the Irish’s motivation this season.
The Irish have plenty of leftover talent from last season’s magical run in addition to some intriguing new weapons that should add plenty of pop into 2013 Notre Dame tickets. But it won’t be easy to match last year’s success.
As usual, the Irish face a grueling schedule, featuring showdowns with some of college football’s elite programs. Notre Dame has road games against the Michigan Wolverines, Purdue Boilermakers, Arizona State Sun Devils, Air Force Falcons, Pittsburgh Panthers and Stanford Cardinal. The Irish will host the Temple Owls, Michigan State Spartans, Oklahoma Sooners, Southern Cal Trojans, Navy Midshipmen and BYU Cougars.
Notre Dame will tackle that brutal schedule with a talented defense led by All-American defensive tackle Louis Nix and star defensive lineman Stephon Tuitt. Offensively, Kelly will be breaking in a new starting quarterback, after last year’s starter Everett Golson left the program due to academic issues in the offseason. Nevertheless, the Irish has plenty of offensive weapons to light up the scoreboard at Notre Dame Stadium. Receivers TJ Jones and Davaris Daniels are emerging stars, and running back George Atkinson should blossom is Kelly’s scheme. Keep an eye on USC-transfer Amir Carlisle, as well. He’s got plenty of talent and will get a shot at being a major contributor for the Irish.
As you can tell, Notre Dame Football tickets will be in high demand for the 2013 college football season, and ABCTickets.com has proven time after time that it is the best place to buy Fighting Irish tickets.
After last season’s BCS run, the Fighting Irish are back for more. They’ll have a difficult schedule to conquer, but Kelly has proven capable of getting Notre Dame to play at an elite level. There’s no reason to expect anything different out of 2013 Notre Dame Football tickets.
2008 Notre Dame football ticket info
The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are looking for a third straight BCS bid as they start the 2007 football season. But the Irish will have their work cut out for them as they will field a younger squad and only return a total of nine starters.
Anyone who had Notre Dame tickets the past two years has seen head coach Charlie Weis bring a pro style offense to South Bend. The upgraded passing attack enabled quarterback Brady Quinn to establish all-time records with 640 completions for 8,336 yards and 58 touchdowns. Irish ticket holders will no longer see Quinn under center as he was drafted in the first round by the Cleveland Browns. But they should be excited to see freshman Jimmy Clausen lead Notre Dame for the next few years.
Clausen was the consensus #1 quarterback in the 2007 recruiting class. The California native actually committed to the program when he was still a junior. He is also the younger brother of University of Tennessee quarterbacks Casey and Rick.
Clausen was the USA Today Offensive Player of the Year in 2006. He is touted to have the total package: great arm strength, lightning quick release, pinpoint accuracy, and composure under pressure. The Irish will need Clausen to step in quickly as they once again play one of the toughest schedules in the country.
Notre Dame tickets will be available as they host Georgia Tech in the season opener on September 1st and top ranked USC in South Bend on October 20th. Road games to Penn State on September 8th and Michigan on September 15th will be in hot demand.
Those with Irish tickets will also see Weis’ continued efforts at building a stronger, faster defense. The third year coach has brought in highly ranked recruiting classes and should see his efforts pay dividends this season. The Irish averaged 31 points a game last season, but gave up an average of 44 in their three losses.
At the first day of practice on August 6th, Weis threw down the gauntlet to his young squad:
"The message to the players is, if you want people to think you're worth a darn, then go prove it.”
2007 Notre Dame football ticket info for the Fighting Irish
Don’t rely on the luck of the Irish to locate your Notre Dame football tickets because the 2006 NCAA college football season has the potential to be golden for Charlie Weiss’ resurgent program. South Bend has been buzzing since Weiss arrived on campus before the 2005 season. An offensive genius who led the New England Patriots to three Super Bowl championships, Weiss delivered immediately and returned the Irish to national prominence in his first year on the sidelines. Notre Dame’s epic battle with the USC Trojans last year was one of the best games ever. It ended with USC quarterback Matt Leinart sneaking in from one yard out on the last play to spoil what had been a heroic comeback by the Irish. Although the game ended in heartbreak for Irish fans, it did send notice to the rest of the college football landscape: Notre Dame is back.
Despite a humbling loss to Ohio State in last year’s Fiesta Bowl, Notre Dame will be a factor in the national championship race this year. Led by quarterback Brady Quinn and his favorite target, lanky wide out Jeff Samardzija, the Irish offense will be in good hands. N.D.’s devastating duo hooked up for 15 touchdown passes last season. Quinn tops a list of Heisman trophy candidates and will only get better with a year in Weiss’ offense under his belt. But defenses won’t be able to focus solely on the pass. Junior running back Darius Walker provides a consistent threat on the ground and coming out of the backfield as a receiver. With Weiss directing that threesome of stars, the Irish will be lighting up scoreboards across the nation.
As usual, the Irish will have to survive one of the most difficult schedules in the nation. A season-opening road game at Georgia Tech is followed by home games against Penn State and Michigan. And there may not be a bigger game all season than Notre Dame’s season finale at USC. The Irish will be looking for revenge on Nov. 25 in Pasadena, Calif.
The Irish are back in the national spotlight, and ABCTickets.com is on the Notre Dame bandwagon. We’ve got Notre Dame football tickets for the biggest games of the year. So let up put you in the heat of the action at South Bend this fall!
