    Notre Dame Welcomes GameDay

    Oct. 13, 2005

    The Notre Dame campus is already buzzing for this weekend's highly anticipated matchup between No. 9 Notre Dame and No. 1 USC. ESPN's College GameDay has set up in its traditional position on campus between Notre Dame Stadium and the Hesburgh Memorial Library. GameDay made its first on-campus appearance at Notre Dame in 1993.

    ESPN's College GameDay returns to campus this weekend for the first time since 2000, which was the last time a No. 1 ranked team visited Notre Dame Stadium. No. 1 Nebraska outlasted No. 23 Notre Dame 27-24 in overtime on Sept. 9, 2000.

    It was a gorgeous day in South Bend, Ind., on Thursday. Here, the GameDay crew goes over some last minute set up in between Notre Dame Stadium and the Hesburgh Memorial Library.

    Notre Dame is 3-3 all-time at home when College GameDay is on campus. A little known fact, the show made its first 'on the road' appearance at Notre Dame in 1993 - when the Irish knocked off #1 Florida State 31-24.

    Notre Dame Stadium, celebrating its 75th anniversary this season, is poised and ready to play host to its biggest game in years. The irish will run through their final practice before the USC game in the Stadium at 5:30 p.m. EST on Thursday evening.
