IRISH EXTRA: Irish Know It's `Game On' with Midshipmen

A Notre Dame-Navy game is always a physical battle.

 

Joe Schmidt, a bone-jarring 6-foot-1, 235-pound linebacker for the University of Notre Dame, understands the honor that runs deep in the storied football series between Notre Dame and Navy.

"Understanding the history behind this series is really important," Schmidt said. "Navy kept Notre Dame afloat during the second World War. We really owe what Notre Dame is today in part to the Naval Academy sending us midshipmen back in the day. I think that's extremely important to know. It's a special rivalry that's about more than just football."

Schmidt got a truer understanding of what Navy football is all about the first time he played against the Midshipmen in 2012, when he took a shot under the chin.

Playing special teams for the Fighting Irish in that 2012 game played at Aviva Stadium in Dublin, Ireland, Schmidt learned that playing Navy means bell-to-bell action, 15 rounds of fury.
