To be a fan of the Fighting Irish is to revere the tradition, understand the legend, and experience the pageantry of Notre Dame—all for the glory in the end zone. This collection illuminates the team's storied victories and dignified defeats, and proves once and for all why this school is the one by which all other college football programs are judged. Even the most casual Notre Dame football fans can recount the greatest Irish games: the landmark home victories over top-ranked teams in 1988 and 1993, the unforgettable 10-10 tie with Michigan State in 1966, Harry Oliver's epic 51-yard field goal, and the long list of bowl wins against the likes of Texas, Alabama, West Virginia, Colorado, Texas A&M, and Florida. Not to be overlooked is the birth of the Four Horsemen, the "Win One for the Gipper" game, plus four straight seasons under Frank Leahy without a loss. Games are recounted in rich detail, supported by statistics, scoring summaries, and memorable quotations from the coaches and players involved. A bonus highlight DVD includes interviews and historic footage of some of the greatest Fighting Irish moments.
