This Day in History: ND Turns on the Lights

In the spring of 1982, the university made the momentous decision to host the first night game at Notre Dame Stadium. On September 18, the Fighting Irish opened the season at home against #10 Michigan. Since the House That Rockne Built did not have permanent lighting, Musco Lighting set up temporary fixtures outside the stadium. In recent interviews, Greg Bell (’84) and Tom Thayer (’84) looked back on the game and the hype that surrounded it. Relive the memorable 23-17 Irish victory in this Strong and True moment.
