88 AND 1, Presented By Coca-Cola, Chronicles The Greatest Upset In College Basketball History

 

Jan. 15, 2014

In celebration of the 40-year anniversary of the University of Notre Dame's stunning 1974 victory over UCLA's national powerhouse men's basketball team, Fighting Irish Digital Media, in partnership with 3 Penny Films, has produced a one-hour special presentation titled 88 AND 1, presented by Coca-Cola, premiering on ESPN2 at 8 p.m. EST on Sunday, January 19.

ESPNU will re-air the show at the following times:

• January 19 - 10 p.m. EST
• January 21 - 4 p.m. EST
• January 24 - 6 p.m. EST
• January 30 - 1 a.m. EST
The social conversation will utilize #88AND1.

88 AND 1, presented by Coca-Cola tells the story of that fateful day, Jan. 19,1974, when UCLA's unfathomable three-year winning streak came to a shocking end at the hands of the Notre Dame basketball squad. It was the greatest dynasty the college basketball world has ever known, but in three minutes and 22 seconds, it all came crumbling down. Dick Enberg, Bill Walton, John Shumate and others re-live that pre-ESPN era when TVS owned the airwaves, John Wooden owned the hardwood, and Irish coach Digger Phelps engineered the greatest upset in college basketball history.

Notre Dame will recognize Phelps on Jan. 19, 2014, at halftime of the Notre Dame men's basketball game versus Virginia Tech by inducting him into the Notre Dame Ring of Honor. Members of the 1974 team that knocked off UCLA will join Phelps on the Purcell Pavilion court for the ceremony. ESPNU will televise the game at 6 p.m. EST.
