A week after losing to Navy for the first time in 44 years, Notre Dame finds itself three-point underdogs at home against Air Force on Saturday.

Heading into the season, the Irish were 20-and-1 against military academies at home since 1985.

But this season is different, as Notre Dame is 1-and-8 so far.

Things are so bad that the only players whom coach Charlie Weis allowed to talk with reporters this week were the team captains. He says he knew there would be tough questions about the home losing streak and this year's squad possibly being the worst in school history.

The Irish could hit a new low with a loss tomorrow against the Falcons, who are 7-and-3 on the season. No Notre Dame team has ever lost nine games in a season.

It would also be the first time since 1944 that the Irish lost twice to military academies in the same season.
