Notre Dame returns just 10 letterwinners and six starters from last year's team that posted a 10-8-3 overall record. The Fighting Irish, which are three-time National Champions (1995, 2004 and 2010), dropped a 1-0 decision to Wisconsin for their season opener on the road. Notre Dame is coached by former TU men's and women's soccer coach Randy Waldrum (1989-1994).
The Fighting Irish have won both previous meetings with TU, including a 7-1 decision a year ago and a 2-0 mark in 2000. Notre Dame was ranked seventh and second, respectively, at the time of those contests.
