Notre Dame went back to practice this Monday for the 9th team workout of the season. Due to crappy weather the team returned indoors to the Loftus Center but UND.com was kind enough to provide us some footage from Saturday's outdoor practice.
0:13- There's Golson making sure the team isn't too sleepy out there.
