(DUBLIN) — There was no luck needed for the Irish on Saturday. Notre Dame (1-0) cruised past Navy (0-1) in front of a crowd of 49,000 at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium on Saturday, 50-10. It was the college game in Ireland since 1996.
Theo Riddick got things started for the Irish with a 11-yard touchdown run and it would be smooth sailing from there. Riddick also rushed for one more touchdown in the game, finishing with 107 yards on the ground.
George Attkinson rushed for 99 yards with a pair of touchdowns and defensive end Stephon Tuitt returned a fumble 77 yards for another touchdown in the rout of Navy.
