Goal Line Stand (1998 vs. Boston College)

However, with a first and goal from inside the five yard line, the Eagles looked poised to snap Notre Dame’s five-game winning streak. Led by Bobbie Howard (‘99), Jimmy Friday (’99) and Deke Cooper (’00), the Fighting Irish defense stood strong, stopping four consecutive rushing plays to preserve a victory and improve to 7-1.
