Romeo Okwara


Another Okwara is on the way to Notre Dame.


Notre Dame’s defensive line will be an incomplete unit this spring, with nose guard Jarron Jones not participating as he recovers from foot surgery.


Notre Dame this fall will be without only three players from its 2014 defense: Cornerback Cody Riggs, safety Austin Collinsworth and defensive lineman Justin Utupo.


Notre Dame heads to Los Angeles at 7-4, and a loss to USC would leave the Irish with their worst regular-season record since Brian Kelly's first year in South Bend.


TEMPE, Ariz. — Notre Dame allowed 55 points on Saturday, a total not exactly good for its scoring defense rank. The 55-31 loss won't look good in the record books.
