The No. 16 Stanford Cardinal spoiled Notre Dame's Saturday, handing the Irish a 37-14 loss at home. Brian Kelly has lost three straight games as coach of the Irish. It's the worst start by Notre Dame since 2007, when they lost four of their first five games and finished 3-9 under Charlie Weis. Kelly's record is tied for the worst four-game start by a Notre Dame coach in his first season in school history.
