• The Irish defense hasn’t given up a touchdown of any kind in 16 straight quarters. That’s the longest streak since the 1980 season.

• Saturday’s 20-13 overtime win over Stanford was just the eighth game in the 32 Kelly has coached at Notre Dame in which the Irish trailed at halftime. It marked the second time in those eight games in which they came from behind to win.

• The Irish will be playing as a Top 5 team Saturday for the first time since the 2006 season. Notre Dame is 57-7 at home all-time as a Top 5 team.

• BYU is 4-8 all-time against Top 5 teams, its last win coming in 2009 against No. 3 Oklahoma.

• There are 38 members of BYU’s football team currently serving Mormon missions in 17 countries around the world.
