HeelTube: Notre Dame’s Last Visit To Chapel Hill

Much has been discussed this week about the last time Notre Dame came to Kenan Stadium. (BTW, in case no one told you, it’s ND WEEK YAY!) Carolina jumped to an early lead, as the offense took advantage of a botched punt snap and scored the first touchdown of the game. It was Followed by a 39 yard passing touchdown to give UNC a 14-0 lead. In the fourth quarter, however, Joe Montana led his first of many comebacks in his illustrious career. He lead the Irish to three consecutive scoring drive in the final five and a half minute to give Notre Dame a 21-14 victory.

Thanks to the Internet, we now have the video of that game.

One of the things that interests me about this video is the old Kenan Stadium. It appears to be before they built the upper deck (on the north side, anyway), there is no green walkway or hedge between the fans and the sidelines, and the luxury boxes seem to resemble elaborate treehouses compared to the seats they have now. How times have changed.
