SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) -- Notre Dame wide receiver DaVaris Daniels says he will be ready to go when the top-ranked Fighting Irish face No. 2 Alabama in the BCS title game, two months after breaking left collarbone.
Irish coach Brian Kelly said the Irish need to make some "big chunk" plays against the Crimson Tide and Daniels could help. His average of 15 yards per catch is the highest of any Irish receiver, and he had the longest catch of the game for the Irish in four of the 10 games he played.
Daniels had his first contact on Friday. The 6-foot-2, 190-pound sophomore says his shoulder isn't 100 percent, but it's improving. He says he doesn't know his role against the Crimson Tide, but he's hoping to contribute.
