By the Numbers vs. SDSU

By Joe Pierce

0: Number of sacks given up by Notre Dame's offensive line. Nice work, boys.

1: Number of sacks registered by Notre Dame's defense. San Diego State did a nice job of running quick-hit plays to render Irish blitzes irrelevant.

100: Well, 105, really - Notre Dame rushed for over 100 yards on opening day. They didn't accomplish that until week 4 last year.

14: Number of tackles by Kyle McCarthy, who played a terrific game.

2: Number of tackles registered by the entire Irish defensive line. Take notes from Kyle McCarthy, please.

9: The number worn by both TE Kyle Rudolph and DE Ethan Johnson. Steel cage match for #9!

200: Number of consecutive sellouts at Notre Dame Stadium.

400: Total number of games played at Notre Dame Stadium.
