Irv Smith vs. Indiana (1991)

In the 1991 season opener, tight end Irv Smith (‘93) caught a pass from quarterback Rick Mirer (’93), and dragged an Indiana defender nearly 30 yards, as another pair of Hoosiers unsuccessfully tried to bring him down. In a recent interview with Fighting Irish Digital Media, Smith, who also played baseball at Notre Dame, reflected upon the play and how head coach Lou Holtz’s motivation changed the course of his athletic career.
