NOTRE DAME: The Irish were 12-0 before falling in the BCS Title game, and many players return for an encore. One big absence is QB Everett Golson who flunked off the team, leaving QB Tommy Rees (4,414 pass yds, 34 TD, 24 INT in career) to run a below-average offense (25.8 PPG, 80th in FBS). Leading receiver, TE Tyler Eifert, is gone, but WRs TJ Jones (649 rec. yds, 4 TD) and DaVaris Daniels (490 rec. yds) are ready for more action. RB George Atkinson III (361 rush yds, 5 TD) becomes the No. 1 back with a punishing O-Line to run behind. Notre Dame's D was phenomenal in 2012, allowing just 12.8 PPG (2nd in FBS) and 305 YPG (7th in FBS). DE Stephon Tuitt (12 sacks) and NG Louis Nix III (50 tackles, 5 PD) will keep the front four charging, and LB Jarrett Grace replaces Manti Te'o. S Matthias Farley (49 tackles) and CB Bennett Jackson (4 INT, 65 tackles) headline a smothering secondary.
PURDUE: Former Kent State head man Darrell Hazell is ditching the spread offense and promises a more physical, pro-style attack under OC John Shoop. QB Rob Henry (6.1 YPA, 11 TD, 8 INT career) will likely win the starting job over freshmen Danny Etling and Austin Appleby, but Henry last started in 2010. Senior WR Gary Bush (360 rec. yds, 7 TD) highlights a subpar group of receivers. Hazell believes speedy RB Akeem Hunt (75 carries, 8.3 YPC career) can be the bell-cow now that he's added more muscle. Purdue's poor defense (416 YPG, 11th in Big Ten) allowed 41.2 PPG in its final six defeats and lost DT Kawann Short to the NFL. DT Bruce Gaston (5.5 TFL) will try to fill the void, and DE Ryan Russell (4 sacks) is a budding star. CB Ricardo Allen (7 INT career) is a blanket and S Landon Feichter (80 tackles, 4 INT) makes plays. The top linebacker is Sean Robinson (3 PD), a former quarterback.

*Notre Dame-Purdue Preview* ===========================


No. 1 Notre Dame (1-1) at Purdue (1-1), 8:00 p.m. EDT

Coach Brian Kelly had more than seven months to prepare Notre Dame for its next contest following a loss in the BCS national championship game, but he'll have a much smaller window this time around.

He'll also have to figure out why his units on either side of the ball didn't meet expectations last week before the 21st-ranked Fighting Irish visit Purdue on Saturday night.

Notre Dame (1-1) rode a dominating defense to a 12-0 regular season before being routed by Alabama for the national title Jan. 7. It shined defensively again in a 28-6 win over Temple in the season opener Aug. 31, but it couldn't slow then-No. 17 Michigan on the ground nor through the air in last week's 41-30 defeat.

The 460 total yards allowed were the Irish's most in their last 20 regular-season games. Notre Dame is 27-1 excluding bowl games under Kelly when giving up 382 yards or fewer, and 1-9 when allowing more.

Kelly, who was hired prior to the 2010 season, is 26-0 in the regular season when the Irish allow 21 points or fewer.

"Last year we had to rely on our defense to win football games. I don't want to have to do that week in and week out," Kelly said. "I think there are going to be some times when our offense has to win some ballgames."

He wasn't exactly pleased with that unit, either. Tommy Rees finished 29 for 51 for 314 yards and two touchdowns, though he also threw two interceptions. The Irish had only 19 rushing attempts for 96 yards, and Kelly didn't say he plans to balance his team's attack more against Purdue.

"Whatever it takes to win football games, we better be good at it," Kelly said. "We better be good at scoring points throwing the ball, we better be good at scoring points running the ball.

"I'm confident that we can fix the things that need to be fixed."

Kelly is hoping a tough week of practice after the bitter loss will help, too.

"Dinner doesn't taste good, meetings are a lot harder, practice is probably a little bit more spirited," Kelly said. "We have to be smarter and more disciplined as a football team."

Notre Dame has won five straight meetings with Purdue, which gave the Irish one of their toughest games last season before falling 20-17 on Kyle Brindza's 27-yard field goal with seven seconds remaining.

"This is an instate rival that certainly plays well against us," Kelly said. "We just have to look at last year's game."

The Boilermakers (1-1) are looking more into the future under coach Darrell Hazell, who is in his first year in West Lafayette after two seasons at Kent State.

After committing four turnovers in a 42-7 loss to Cincinnati on Aug. 31, Purdue hung on to beat FCS opponent Indiana State 20-14 last Saturday. Akeem Hunt returned the opening kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown before rushing for 82 yards on 22 carries.

"There are times when you win ugly and you lose pretty," Hazell said. "You learn to appreciate the wins. Obviously we made it a little bit harder than we should have, but it still goes in the win column."

Purdue's last victory in the series was 33-19 on Sept. 29, 2007, and Hazell knows his squad will have a tough time ending its losing streak to the Irish.

"I'm excited and our guys should be excited about the game," Hazell said. "It's a heck of a challenge for our football team, and I know they'll be up for the challenge. The things that we can control, all the mistakes, we have to control those. If we do, we have a better chance of being successful."

Quarterback Rob Henry was used mainly as a running back and receiver in 2012 and didn't play at all against the Irish last season. He's thrown two interceptions and no touchdowns through the first two games.

Purdue will be without safety Landon Feichter, who suffered a broken leg last week.
