On autumn Saturdays, more than 80,000 blue-and-gold-clad fans pack the Notre Dame Stadium to enjoy one of the greatest atmospheres in college football. Gifted coaches-including Lou Holtz, Ara Parseghian, and Frank Leahy-and a steady stream of talented, hardworking players have led the Fighting Irish to an enviable record 11 national championships, seven Heisman award winners and 99 All-Americans.
