Lou Holtz Debut (1986 vs. Michigan)

In 1986, Lou Holtz arrived at the University of Notre Dame, taking over a football program. Though the Fighting Irish lost a close contest to Michigan in Holtz’s first game as head coach, the team received a standing ovation when leaving the field. In an exclusive interview, quarterback Steve Beuerlein (’87) reflected upon that game, the beginning of Notre Dame’s return to glory under Holtz’s leadership.
