Notre Dame, Miami Players Not Allowed Into Mexico

Notre Dame Plays Miami In The Sun Bowl Friday

(WSCR) – Notre Dame faces Miami in the Sun Bowl this Friday and precautions are being taken. Players of both teams will not be allowed to cross the border into Mexico for a little fun before the game.

EL PASO, Texas (AP) Players from Notre Dame and Miami will not be allowed to cross the border into one of Mexico’s most dangerous cities during their free time before the Sun Bowl.

Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly took his team’s passports before the Fighting Irish flew to El Paso as a precaution. The Hurricanes didn’t bring passports, either, and met with both local law enforcement and the FBI on Sunday shortly after arriving in Texas to further underscore the potential dangers of crossing the border.

Fans from both schools have also been urged to be cautious. El Paso borders the Mexican city of Cuidad Juarez, which is wrapped in a drug war. Officials say more than 3,000 people have been killed there this year alone, and the vast majority of crimes in the city are never investigated.

The Sun Bowl is Friday.

    will they be allowed to rape or molest any local girls where they will be staying? and if they are, who is the contact attorney who will handle the bothersome calls when the girl goes public? did they practice there maranda along with their plays while out there on the field? thanks
