Navy's game against Notre Dame on Nov. 1 2014 will be played at FedEx Field in Landover, the school announced today. The Midshipmen and Fighting Irish last met at Fed Ex Field in 1998. Navy's last game at the Washington Redskins' stadium was the 2011 Army-Navy game - a 27-21 victory for the Mids. “FedEx Field did a fine job of hosting the Army-Navy game and we are looking forward to another sold out event in 2014,” Navy athletic director Chet Gladchuk said in a news release.

Joe Paterno had to chuckle at the suggestion. His Penn State team is playing Notre Dame before 96,500 tailgaters and half the nation's TV football fans Saturday and someone wanted to know if the fact the Irish got upset last week by Tennessee took some of the luster off the game."

COLLEGE PARK -- Basketball practice for the Maryland Terrapins on Monday - one day after Notre Dame ended their eight-game winning streak - was, according to coach Gary Williams, "interesting." In other words, he got a little loud. Was it his most vocal practice ever? "Oh, no," he said, a smile cracking his usually stoic face. "There's been others. ... When I feel we could've won the game just doing a few things differently, then the next practice is probably going to be pretty tough."

The scowl on Notre Dame coach Kevin Corrigan's face told the story. So did his tone and the words that accompanied it."We played horribly," Corrigan said, embarrassed as well as angry. "We didn't play that way all season."How did Corrigan account for such a wretched performance in Notre Dame's biggest game of the season, in the first round of the NCAA tournament?"If I knew that," Corrigan growled, "it wouldn't have happened."Thrashed by Loyola in every phase of the game, Notre Dame bowed out of the tournament with a 21-5 loss yesterday at Towson State.

For Navy football coach Paul Johnson, details matter. So it wasn't surprising this week to see him stop in mid-sentence and correct himself when asked what makes the annual Navy-Notre Dame game special. "It's a great rivalry," Johnson started to say, only to hesitate for a moment before backing up. "Or, I mean, it's a great series. I think both schools stand for something, and that's what's neat about college football." Though the change was a subtle one, it was an indicator that Johnson understands reality.

There is no one willing to argue with the cold, hard facts of this week's Navy-Notre Dame game. The Fighting Irish have beaten the Mids 38 straight times, an NCAA record for consecutive victories over an opponent. And more than a few of those games have been blowouts in favor of Notre Dame. But it's also true that a couple of times in the past few years, the Midshipmen have put a heck of a scare into the Irish. In 1997, Navy lost just 21-17, and in 1999, Notre Dame needed a last-minute, fourth-down conversion to keep an eventual game-winning drive alive in a 28-24 victory.
