Navy rolled the dice early against No. 10-ranked Notre Dame, and the Middies paid when the numbers came up wrong.

Coach Lou Holtz insisted he didn't raise his voice at halftime. Someone, however, got the message through loud and clear to Notre Dame. The Fighting Irish, the nation's No. 2 team, was staring at a 24-17 deficit at halftime against Navy, a team considered little more than a tuneup for a Nov. 13 showdown with top-ranked Florida State. "I allowed our seniors to say some words at halftime. There was no ranting and raving," Holtz said.
