Sept. 7, 2009

NOTRE DAME, Ind. – On the heels of Notre Dame’s most lopsided victory under head coach Charlie Weis, junior quarterback Jimmy Clausen and sophomore wide receiver Michael Floyd have received national accolades for each of their performances. The duo helped lead the Irish to a 35-0 victory over Nevada.

Clausen is one of four nominees for the AT&T All-America Player of the Week award following his 15 of 18 for 315 yards and four-touchdown performance against the Wolf Pack. Fans determine the recipient of the weekly award by texting VOTE to 345345 by 11:59 p.m. Wednesday. There is no limit on fan voting and the winner will be announced during Thursday’s ESPN college football game.

Floyd caught four passes for career highs of 189 receiving yards and three touchdowns. His receiving total was best among Football Bowl Subdivision players in week one. Floyd was named National Performer of the Week by College Football Performance Awards.

The Irish return to the field this Saturday when they travel to Ann Arbor, Mich. to face the University of Michigan.
