FILE - In this Sept. 8, 2012 file photo, Notre Dame linebacker Danny Spond (13) cheers during the first half of an NCAA college football game against Purdue in South Bend, Ind. The junior from Littleton, Colo., wasn’t sure he’d play football again after he was struck by a debilitating migraine headache that left him barely able to move because the left side of his body was so numb. But after missing the first two games, Spond has bounced back and started eight games for the third-ranked Fighting Irish heading into Saturday’s game against Wake Forest.(AP Photo/Michael Conroy, File)
