College football Week 0 sights and sounds: Notre Dame-Navy, more | Genznews

College football is back! 

Week 0 is here, and there are seven games involving FBS teams in action Saturday. Kicking off the season is No. 13 Notre Dame vs. Navy in Dublin, Ireland.

The evening slate is highlighted by No. 6 USC opening at home against San Jose State at 8 p.m. ET.

Here are the sights and sounds from Week 0, as well as reactions from social media.

Pricey touchdown

Jadarian Price plowed his way through the Navy defense for a 19-yard score to help double Notre Dame’s lead to 14-0 late in the first quarter. 

First touchdown of the season

Notre Dame is the first team to get on the board in the 2023 FBS season. The Irish marched down the field on their opening drive before Audric Estime ran in for a 1-yard score. 

Everyone is ready for football!

The fans in Ireland were pumped and ready right before kickoff as “Shipping Up to Boston” echoed throughout the stadium. 

Not everyone is in regularseason form

After Navy took the field, a pair of its flag carriers were a bit behind. The people carrying the “V” and “Y” flags were noticeably several yards behind the two people holding the “N” and “A” flags, signaling they still need some time for conditioning!

Pregame performances

Notre Dame’s band took the field prior to kickoff, marching to form the word “Irish” during its performance.

Where are you, Brady?

Notre Dame fans flocked and flooded Dublin ahead of Saturday’s game, which led Matt Leinart to wonder where fellow “Big Noon” analyst — and ex-Notre Dame quarterback — Brady Quinn was in Ireland’s capital.

Irish everywhere

Football fans were all over Dublin on Saturday ahead of kickoff.
