FIRST LOOK: Notre Dame Football reveals Rockne Heritage Uniform

The Fighting Irish will wear special uniforms to honor former head coach and three-time national champion Knute Rockne, whose vision and persistence led to the construction of the original Notre Dame Stadium. In 1930, the inaugural year of Notre Dame Stadium, the Irish played Navy in the Dedication Game for the facility. Fast forward to 2017 and the Fighting Irish will wear the ROCKNE uniforms in the November 18th contest against the Midshipmen to close out the inaugural season in the new facility.

Upon graduation from Notre Dame Rockne was offered a post at his alma mater as a graduate assistant in chemistry. He accepted that position on the condition that he be allowed to help Jesse Harper coach the football team. When Harper retired after the 1917 season, Rockne was named his successor. During Rockne's 13-year coaching tenure, the Irish won six national championships, beat Stanford in the 1925 Rose Bowl and put together five unbeaten and untied seasons. His lifetime winning percentage of .881 (105-12-5) still ranks at the top of the list for both college and professional football. Rockne was inducted into the National Football Foundation Hall of Fame in the first year of inductions in 1951.
