Notre Dame provided some great footage from the locker room and sidelines of last night’s win over USC.

The video opens with Brian Kelly’s halftime address to his team. The Fighting Irish led 16-10, and you can see on Kelly’s face how close they are to 12-0. “Alright men, this is it,” Kelly said. “This is it! Play the last two quarters together and play to the last second. That’s who we are. Be who we are.

“You’ve got a great opportunity. Go seize the moment. Let’s go play.”

The video then picks up at Notre Dame’s goal line stand and shows the post-game celebration on the field.

Kelly enters the locker room to cheers from his players and a kiss from Joe Theismann. 

“You put yourself in the history books,” Kelly told his team. “Our want and desire to win football games is unparalleled, and it’s because of great players and a great coaching staff.”

“We’re going to South Beach.”
