The Blocked Punt (1988 vs. Miami)

In the third quarter of the Notre Dame vs. Miami game in 1988, Hurricanes head coach elected for some trickery on 4th-and-3 from his own 47-yard line. With Tim Kalal in punt formation, Miami snapped the ball to the upback, but the Irish stuffed the fake behind the line of scrimmage, thanks in part to a great defensive play by Steve Belles (’89). In this Strong and True moment, Belles and head coach Lou Holtz describe the play and how it shifted momentum in the memorable back-and-forth battle.
