Jesse's coach was quick to quell any rumors that the rock star's son is playing because of Bon Jovi's status. Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly told csnchicago.com that Jesse, #34, is "a tough kid" and that "he's earned his spot on the roster."

Notre Dame topped Temple in their opening game Friday, beating the Owls 28-6.
