Notre Dame ending 17-year relationship with Adidas and switching to Under Armour

SOUTH BEND, Ind. - Under Armour Inc. CEO Kevin Plank recalls sleeping in the visiting locker room at Notre Dame Stadium back in 1997, invited to the game by Georgia Tech staff and forced to bunker down because he didn't have a hotel room. Back then, his company was about a year old and he was excited to see the Yellow Jackets take the field in Under Armour apparel.

NCAAF Team Report - Notre Dame - INSIDE SLANT It was an emotional and satisfying home finale as Notre Dame topped BYU 23-13 and Irish faithful bid farewell to a successful group of seniors last Saturday. But there's still important business ahead as Notre Dame seeks a ninth victory and raise their postseason bowl profile against No. 8 Stanford (9-2) in Saturday's regular season finale.

NCAAF Team Report - Notre Dame - INSIDE SLANT A fourth straight victory has put Notre Dame back in the major bowl picture. Last Saturday's entertaining but nerve-wracking 38-34 win over Navy propelled the Irish (7-2) back into the Associated Press Top 25 and -- more importantly -- improved their BCS bowl standing. Notre Dame is No. 23 in BCS and hopes to climb further with a Saturday win at Pitt (4-4) at Heinz Stadium in Pittsburgh. The Panthers have lost two straight and three of four.

Golson, who led Notre Dame to the 2012 national championship game, was dismissed from the school for cheating on a test according to an article published in this week's edition of Sports Illustrated.

NCAAF Team Report - Notre Dame - INSIDE SLANT Notre Dame faces at least two challenges as it prepares for Saturday's road clash at Air Force.

NCAAF Team Report - Purdue - INSIDE SLANT Purdue fell to Notre Dame 31-24 last week, but may have gotten the momentum and confidence it was searching for as it prepares to open Big Ten play this week against Wisconsin. The offense came up with its best game of the season against the Irish. Rob Henry completed 25 of his 40 passes for 256 yards and three touchdowns. While it didn't result in a victory, it did represent a big improvement over the season's first two games.

NCAAF Team Report - Notre Dame - INSIDE SLANT Unless there's a change of heart, Saturday's clash at Michigan will be the next-to-last in the series that dates back to 1887. Notre Dame has joined the Atlantic Coast Conference in all sports while maintaining independence in football. But the new association calls for the Irish to play five ACC foes each season, leaving Michigan the odd man out in future schedules. So many of the Irish plan to savor the program's final visit to the Big House.

The Irish won 12 straight regular season games -- the most since 1989, earned a No. 1 national ranking and a berth in the BCS national title game. Then came Alabama. The Crimson Tide crushed Notre Dame 42-14 for the national championship last January. That was then. The Irish aren't looking back.
