The Notre Dame Fighting Irish (6-1), who ranked No. 6 in the most recent AP Poll, will look to bounce back after a controversial road loss to the Florida State Seminoles. Notre Dame nearly pulled off the upset by moving to the two-yard line in the game’s final moments. Quarterback Everett Golson threw a touchdown pass to wide receiver Corey Robinson with 13 seconds remaining, but Notre Dame was flagged for pass interference. Golson threw for 313 yards and three touchdowns in the loss while running back Tarean Folston ran for 120 yards on 21 carries. Notre Dame’s defense limited Florida State’s rushing attack to just 50 yards, but did not have an answer for Jameis Winston, who threw for 273 yards and two touchdowns. This week on the Notre Dame football schedule the Irish will look to bounce back at FedEx Field in Washington D.C. when it takes on the Navy Midshipmen (4-4). Notre Dame and Navy will renew their rivalry on a neutral field where fans can expect to pay modest ticket prices for this match-up.
According to TiqIQ, the average ticket price for Navy vs Notre Dame football tickets is currently $133.84 on the secondary market while the get-in price for the game is $29. This will be the cheapest Navy-Notre Dame game since 2011. Last season, the game at Notre Dame Stadium had an average price of $175.66.
Navy is seeking its third straight victory after a close 41-31 home victory over San Jose State. Navy, which boasts the second best rushing attack in college football (352.3 yards per game), ran for 423 yards and five touchdowns against San Jose State. Quarterback Keenan Reynolds led the way with 251 rushing yards and three touchdowns on 39 carries. Running backs Noah Copeland and DeBrandon Sanders also chipped in touchdowns.
On top of modest secondary market ticket prices, Navy will look to avenge last year’s 38-34 defeat. Navy ran for 331 yards and four touchdowns, but were unable to contain Notre Dame’s offense, which put up 500 total yards. Expect a spirited effort from both sides in this rivalry game.
