This Day in History: Harry Oliver's Heroics

In 1980, Notre Dame defeated Michigan, thanks to some late heroics by kicker Harry Oliver (’83). With the Irish trailing 27-26, Oliver booted a 51-yard field goal as time expired, to lift Notre Dame to a 29-27 win over the Wolverines. In this Strong and True moment, watch footage from the 1980 season highlight video, as described by sportscaster Harry Kalas and called by former Notre Dame play-by-play announcer Tony Roberts.
