NOW: Notre Dame hoping for first win in game against Cal Golden Bears

Notre Dame football is going back to the drawing board for their game against the Cal Golden Bears on Saturday, hoping to earn Head Coach Marcus Freeman his first win with the Irish.

After Saturday's loss, the Irish fell out of the top 25 rankings for the first time in five years.

They are still favored to beat the Golden Bears on Saturday.

The Irish defense says they'll be ready.

"We’re all disappointed because we didn’t get him a win. We didn’t get him a win this week. That’s what we’re fighting for. We’re fighting to get coach a win because that’s what he deserves," defensive coordinator Al Golden said.

"I feel like the frustration for me and probably the captains too. People voted us to be captains and we haven’t led them to any victories or any wins, so for me that’s like the biggest frustration but it’s something that we’ve been harping on as leaders. We’ve been coming together and trying to make a change," defensive end Isaiah Foskey said.

In addition to losing the first two games of the season, the team lost their starting quarterback Tyler Buchner after he suffered a shoulder sprain during the game against Marshall.

"I’m just going to keep preparing and treating practice like a game every single day and getting ready to go out there and have success," Pyne said.

The Irish will take on the Cal Golden Bears Saturday at 2:30 at Notre Dame Stadium.
