Oct. 24, 2009: Notre Dame 20, Boston College 16
Even a dreary, chilly, damp late fall day can’t dull the beauty of Notre Dame’s campus.
Rally on the Green
Thousands packed the Irish Green again this week for the traditional Friday night pep rally.
The Grotto is a must-see for game day visitors.
We write captions for websites, so we haven’t a ghost of a chance of explaining how hydrogen, mixed with a little water can produce the reaction pictured here, part of a science demonstration at the new Jordan Hall.
Dr. Ken Dye Keeps his Focus
Not even stampeding cheerleaders can shake Notre Dame’s director of bands (left, wearing a black suit) from signaling the band to strike up the Notre Dame Victory March.
Captains Eric Olsen (55), Kyle McCarthy (28) and Jimmy Clausen (7) meet their Boston College counterparts at the 50-yard line. BC won the toss and elected to kick off.
What Could’ve Been
Senior Punter Eric Maust, holding on an early field goal attempt, took a high snap to the house for a touchdown. The score was reversed on a holding penalty, but it’s still a very cool picture, don’t you think?
Golden is thy Tate
Junior Golden Tate continued to perform despite the increased attention he receives from opposing secondaries, catching 11 passes for 136 yards and 2 touchdowns.
Tate got free along the Boston College sideline midway through the fourth quarter for a 36-yard touchdown reception that would stand as the game’s winning score.
KLM and Slaughter
Defensive Lineman Kapron Lewis-Moore (89) and Cornerback Jamoris Slaughter (26) celebrate a big defensive play.
Notre Dame beat the Eagles 20-16 to snap the most unfortunate of the Irish’s recent losing streaks. Notre Dame advances to 5-2 on the season and travels to San Antonio, Texas, for next week’s game against Washington State.
