A 2013 season overview from Scholastic‘s sports editor
by Rich Hidy
The 2013 season will be dubbed one of transition in the Brian Kelly era. As a lifelong fan and Notre Dame football optimist, I held out hope that this year’s team could reach double digit wins in back-to-back seasons after last year’s 2013 BCS National Championship appearance.
And although that didn’t happen, this season wasn’t a waste. The Irish faced an extremely difficult schedule and emerged with nine wins and a Pinstripe Bowl victory. That makes two bowl wins in Brian Kelly’s four seasons as head coach. The Irish defeated USC for the third time in four seasons, stymied Rose Bowl and Big 10 Champions Michigan State in a 17-13 win and won a shootout in Dallas against Arizona State 37-34.
