The only break Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly wants the Fighting Irish players taking this week is from classes.
Midterm exams and a hard-fought win over No. 22 Stanford are behind them and a big game is looming next week on the road at 10th-ranked Oklahoma. Still, Kelly said he doesn't expect the fifth-ranked Irish (6-0) to overlook this week's game against Brigham Young (4-3).
''I think it's a trap game each week if you think that you can take a breather,'' Kelly said.
The Irish aren't sure whether they will have starting quarterback Everett Golson, although Kelly said he expects him to play against BYU. Kelly said Golson still needs to pass the computer part of his cognitive testing following the concussion he sustained against Stanford before he'll be cleared to play.
Kelly said missing practice Tuesday shouldn't hamper Golson's preparation too much, since he was limited in practice the previous two weeks because of turf toe and a sh...

A look at how Notre Dame's committed players fared on the gridiron this past weekend.
Even before Saturday's gut-wrenching finish in Notre Dame, Stanford's offense had repeated its initial display of road ineptitude in Seattle. For the second straight time away from home, the Cardinal failed to score an offensive touchdown. Halfway through the 2012 season, the team's offense faces a severe lack of productivity.
As the Cougars get ready to face Notre Dame on the road, there is a sour taste in the defense’s mouth after a poor display against Oregon State. The Cougar defenders will have their hands full when they face a Notre Dame offense looking for a fight.
Eric Jagielo is a very talented Junior 3B from Notre Dame. He spent this past summer playing for the Harwich Mariners of the Cape Cod League. He turned in a great summer season and one scout said this about Eric, "the ball explodes off his bat and he has a real future as a power-hitter."
Eric hit .291 in 158 at-bats and he was second in the league with 13 home runs....
As BYU gets ready to hit the road to face No. 5 Notre Dame on Saturday, there are a lot of questions surrounding the importance of this game. Cougar quarterback Riley Nelson addressed some of those and other questions from the media.
