The Build Up (1988 vs. Miami)

On October 15, 1988, fourth-ranked Notre Dame hosted #1 Miami on a beautiful October afternoon in South Bend. The Hurricanes came into the matchup with a 36-game regular season winning-streak, including four straight victories over the Fighting Irish. Needless to say, it was a tough ticket for the sellout crowd. In the first of a series of moments focused on the contest, Scott Kowalkowski (’91), Tony Rice (’90) and head coach Lou Holtz talk about the hype surrounding arguably the greatest game ever played at Notre Dame Stadium.
