4    The number of wins needed for Irish head football coach Brian Kelly to become the fifth coach in school history to reach 60 wins. The only other men to lead Notre Dame to 60 victories are legendary figures and members of the College Football Hall of Fame: Knute Rockne, Lou Holtz, Ara Parseghian, and Frank Leahy. Kelly has won more four or more games in each of his 12 seasons as head coach, averaging exactly 9 wins per season over that span.

+14    The goal differential of the No.1 Notre Dame men’s soccer team through the first five matches of the regular season. Senior center back Brandon Aubrey secured his first career hat trick with three goals in a 4-1 victory over No. 15 Virginia Tech at Alumni Stadium on Sept. 9. The 5-0 Irish head into a battle with UConn on Sept. 13 having outscored their opponents 16-2 to begin the season.

The Irish will take on Syracuse, Virginia and Duke, all in just nine days in January.

250    The number of consecutive sellouts at Notre Dame Stadium. The streak started in 1973 and currently sits in a comfortable second place among the nation’s current streaks. Nebraska’s Memorial Stadium holds the current lead with a streak of 348 straight home sellouts.
