Notre Dame Goes International: The Mirage Bowl

Notre Dame opened the 2012 season in Dublin and also played on the Emerald Isle in 1996, but trips to the Ireland are not the only international experience for the Fighting Irish. In 1979, Notre Dame capped its season in Tokyo, Japan, taking on Miami in the Mirage Bowl. Vagas Ferguson (’80) was named Mirage Bowl MVP in his final collegiate game, and tri-captain Dave Waymer (’80) returned two interceptions for a touchdown, as the Irish won, 40-15. Look back on the victory over the Hurricanes in this Tel-Ra Productions video, narrated by Harry Kalas.
