Aug. 15, 2009

The University of Notre Dame football team appeared before its fans in Notre Dame Stadium today for the squad’s lone open practice of the preseason schedule. Starting at 9 a.m. ET Saturday morning, the Irish worked through a two hour practice which featured live 11 vs. 11 drills, the highly competitive Irish Eyes drills and several one-on-one drills.

The und.com cameras were there to capture all of the action. First up is the traditional practice report, which offers a preview of all the action we will post in today’s update…
