In the Beginning: Louisville at Notre Dame

Notre-Dame-Era

Another barrier falls, another milestone achieved.

The University of Louisville football team facing the University of Notre Dame for the first time at South Bend, Ind.

There, but not enough just to get there. Winning the first game in the series has to be the goal.

Another opportunity for a school building on milestones, more recently BCS wins at the Orange Bowl and the Sugar Bowl in football and a third NCAA championship in basketball. A proven contender in its first year in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Competitive in all sports, playing at the highest level. Humble and hungry.

Dreamlike but in real time, reaching out, touching the future, embracing reality, right now.

Get thine game face, get it on.
