20 Things That Were Happening The Last Time Notre Dame Won A Championship
Can you believe Notre Dame football hasn’t won a national title since the 1988 season? (They won the Fiesta Bowl on January 2, 1989.) For almost 24 years Notre Dame has played the part of the prom queen hopeful, who’s got some daddy issues, but no crown.
