The University of Notre Dame football team was able to take its spring practice outside for the first time this morning, as the team worked through a spirited 18 periods at the LaBar Practice Complex.

The Irish were in full pads and the hitting started early, which you can check out in today's practice report. After the workout, head coach Brian Kelly, offensive coordinator Charley Molnar and defensive coordinator Bob Diaco spoke with the media and we have those interviews today as well.

We would also like to bring your attention to two football events coming up in less than two weeks. The first is obvious, as the 82nd Annual Blue-Gold Game is set for 2 p.m. ET on Saturday, April 16. By now most fans know that the game will be broadcast on NBC Sports partner Versus - but if you can't get that channel on your cable box don't worry, und.com will be able to provide the Versus feed in our All-Access player. This will mark the second consecutive season you can watch the Blue-Gold Game on und.com.

During the Blue-Gold game week, Irish head coach Brian Kelly will hold his final radio show of the season. On Wednesday, April 13, Coach Kelly will be back at Legends of Notre Dame for a 7 p.m. ET radio show which will be broadcast live on und.com. Local fans can either attend the show in person or listen on WSBT AM 960.
