Friday Night Tradition
During the early afternoon on Football Fridays, the energy on campus begins to pick up, as fans from across the country begin to flood the quads at Notre Dame. In the early evening, students finish classes for the week and add to the mounting electricity all over campus. Then, we bring all of that energy together in one place, bring in the team, and get ready for game day.
The Fighting Irish kickoff home game weekends with pep rallies each Football Friday night. The location of each pep rally is announced at a minimum of a week in advance. Unless otherwise noted, pep rallies begin at 6:00 PM.
