Notre Dame football is a program defined by its many traditions: its status as an independent, the rivalries with USC and Navy, the rumble of the crowd as the Victory March plays.<br /><br />In 2020, that all changed.

The stands at Notre Dame Stadium stayed empty.<br /><br />In an unprecedented look inside this historic program, players Reed Gregory and John Mahoney chronicle a season that won#&39;t be forgotten. Fans will get an up-close view as Brian Kelly#&39;s squad navigates a new course and makes their run to the Rose Bowl.<br /><br /><strong>Filled with insight and personal reflections recorded throughout the year, this fascinating keepsake captures the realities of college football at the crossroads of something much greater.</strong>
