If Saturday's game between Navy and Notre Dame had been an actual battle on the high seas, the Midshipmen wouldn't have even made it out of dry dock.
Cierre Wood is quick, elusive and he has a takeoff gear, giving Notre Dame the breakaway threat it needed to balance the spread offense and help build a three-game winning streak.
Tommy Rees' uneven play was on full display in Notre Dame's latest victory at Pittsburgh. The sophomore quarterback had two more turnovers in the first half _ a fumble and an interception _ and then was a perfect 8-for-8 passing in a game-winning drive.
Notre Dame backup running back Cameron Roberson has two torn knee ligaments suffered in practice and will miss the rest of spring drills after surgery.
