SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Notre Dame defensive end Kapron Lewis-Moore was happy to get out of town, leaving South Bend behind for four days and crossing the Atlantic for the first time in his life.

The destination?

Dublin for a matchup against Navy on Saturday.

Lewis-Moore said he'd try to rest on the long flight over — one that left Wednesday evening — and he was excited to see somewhere new. The Irish are also looking at it as a business trip and hope to avoid a repeat of their opener from a year ago when they were shocked by South Florida.

It's the second time Notre Dame and Navy have met in Dublin. They faced off there in 1996 with the Irish prevailing 54-27.
