The Fighting Irish hit the practice field and the Newscenter Sixteen got a quick glimpse of the team warming up.
After arriving Wednesday, the Fighting Irish are settling into South Florida and preparing for Monday's BCS National Championship football game against Alabama.
Reporters are usually not allowed to watch Notre Dame, but a rare 15 minute viewing period offered some one-on-one drills and offensive plays in the backfield.
The team waited until reporters left to begin working on special teams.
The last time Notre Dame was in a BCS game was the Sugar Bowl in 2007.
They lost against the LSU Tigers 41-14, their ninth consecutive bowl game loss.
