These three stood out in Notre Dame's 38-34 win over Navy.
Tarean Folston, RB: The freshman had a career day, rushing for 140 yards on 18 carries and taking it in for what proved to be the game-winning score with 3:47 left in the fourth quarter. Folston at times looked lethal running the ball and showed a flash of just how good he could be for the Irish in the years to come.
TJ Jones, WR: The senior captain has quite the collection of stickers from the blog after another strong performance. Jones caught four passes for 111 yards and a touchdown as he continues to carry a passing offense that has found more playmakers in recent weeks. Jones described his chemistry with Tommy Rees as something like a sixth sense, and that has proven beneficial for the Irish this season.
Kona Schwenke, DL: Another start for Schwenke paved the way for a career day, capped by a team-high 11 tackles. The senior left the game on Navy's final drive with an undisclosed injury, further testing the defensive line's depth. But he has more than made his mark when given the opportunity to so far this season.
