Notre Dame declared top men's sports program


After a highly successful first season in the ACC, the Notre Dame's men's athletic programs have won an award as the all-around best in the entire country.

ND won the Capital One Cup on the men's side for the 2013-14 athletic year.

It's based on top 10 finishes in NCAA tournaments and polls.

The Irish got a big boost from their national championship in men's soccer, as well as a runner-up performance in men's lacrosse and the fencing team finishing 6th.

Notre Dame will be recognized at the ESPY awards in Los Angeles July 16.
