Many other things coming up, see below for details…
Florida State Game Watch!
Saturday, October 18th, 5:00 pm (Pacific Time)
Like history? According to the University’s game notes, “Saturday marks the 90th anniversary of Notre Dame’s fabled 13-7 victory over Army at the Polo Grounds, Oct 18, 1924. The game inspired iconic New York Herald-Tribune scribe Grantland Rice to refer to Notre Dame’s backfield of Harry Stuhldreher, Jim Crowley, Don Miller and Elmer Layden as the Four Horsemen.” The Irish have only played Florida State 7 times, and the ‘Noles have been victorious 5 times. Notre Dame’s two wins were the only meeting in Tallahassee, and the historic #1 vs. #2 contest at Notre Dame Stadium in 1993. That was ESPN College GameDay’s first live appearance at a football game site, and this weekend the show will be live once again at the site of our matchup. This is one you definitely want to watch with a big group of fellow Irish fans, so join us at one of our two great locations:
