Stuff the ballot box: 10 Memorable Moments


There’s a little less than 24 hours until Notre Dame football takes over Versus on St. Patrick’s Day. Right now, around 2,000 of you have placed your votes for the 10 most memorable moments of Notre Dame football on NBC. I hardly bet I’m giving anything away by telling you there’s a runaway favorite, but I’m actually surprised by how little love a certain iconic game is getting. (Hint: They shot scenes for a certain football movie during this matchup.)

Anyway -- consider this your last call to stuff the ballot box and a final reminder to tune into Versus tomorrow night for six hours of Notre Dame football.

(While you might not enjoy watching the ’05 game, we can all commiserate during the last five minutes and wonder openly if that hypothetical moneyline parlay you hypothetically placed on the Irish and the under and didn’t get to hypothetically cash in thanks to Reggie Bush is now worth something since that football game didn’t technically happen anymore. Anyway, moving on...)

Hosted by Liam McHugh, with an exclusive interview with head coach Brian Kelly, here are the three games that’ll be airing.

1992 “Snow Bowl” vs. Penn State
2005 “Bush Push” vs. USC
1993 No. 1 Florida State vs. No. 2 Notre Dame
(They can’t all be happy memories...)

So take your chance now and vote for the ten of the most memorable moments of Notre Dame on NBC. Here they are in chronological order, posed to you for an all-important vote.
