Miami-Notre Dame to renew rivalry
Question of the Day
CORAL GABLES, FLA. (AP) - Miami and Notre Dame have agreed to renew a football rivalry that during the 1980s helped define each program and decide several national championships.
The Hurricanes and Fighting Irish will play Oct. 6, 2012, at Soldier Field in Chicago, then play a home-and-home starting in 2016 at South Bend, Ind. They play in Miami the next season.
The rivalry dates to the 1950s and Notre Dame leads the series 15-7-1.
But it was during the 1980s, when Miami became a national power, that the rivalry got interesting.
In 1985, Miami embarrassed Notre Dame 58-7 in Jerry Faust’s last game as coach of the Fighting Irish.
The tense and at times nasty series was dubbed Catholics vs. Convicts by some Notre Dame supporters.
The 1988 game was marked by a pregame shoving match and the next season the teams nearly squared off at midfield before the coin toss.
After the 29-20 victory by the Irish in 1990 _ which knocked Miami out of the national title hunt and helped Notre Dame go the Orange Bowl with a chance to win another championship _ the series was stopped.
