SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Notre Dame football dropped to #8 in the Associated Press poll after losing to Ohio State in Head Coach Marcus Freeman’s first regular season game.

After taking on the best offense in the country, it’s safe to say, Notre Dame played better than expected but as players and Freeman have stated time and time again, there are no moral victories.

“You know, the expectation for us in this football program is to win every game we play, including playing the number two team in the country,” said Freeman.

“I think everyone would agree when I say we’re not here for moral victories. You come to Notre Dame to win games,” said Tight End Kevin Bauman

The Irish made some big plays in the season opener. Just not enough big plays down the stretch -- to pull off the upset.

“Just execution. We prepared well throughout the week for that play,” Bauman mentioned.

“It’s frustrating. It pisses me off but the biggest takeaway is, I feel like we’re right there,” said Defensive End Rylie Mills.

Nevertheless, the team is focused on another storied program that they face at home in week two, the Marshall Thundering Herd.

“At the end of the day, we’re a very storied program that has a lot of things tied to football and so are they. So, it’s great to see two teams just come out that love football, that want to be the best at what they do,” Mills added.

“Next week we got Marshall and that’s what we focused on right now,” said Cornerback TaRiq Bracy.

The Irish will take on Marshall at home on Saturday at 2:30 p.m.
