Sun Bowl, Dec 31, 2010: Notre Dame 33 Miami 17.
The Sun Bowl sold out in less than 24 hours - shattering the record it set in 2009 when they sold out with 10 days before kickoff. The attendance was a Sun Bowl record of 54, 021.
BR at the Sun Bowl. It should been called the Overcast Bowl. But it was a beautiful day for the Irish!
< Brian Kelly. Is he right guy to lead the Irish back to prominence? YES, YES AND YES!

I have only attended 8 Notre Dame football games, so far. The first one was in 1982 at Pitt Stadium. I bought a ticket for $40 and sat midway up in the stands along the 10-yard line. It was very cold and crisp and when I saw the Irish come out of the tunnel my knees were shaking. Notre Dame defeated then #1 Pittsburgh and Dan Marino and it is one of my greatest sports memories.
I was actually in the Army broadcast booth in 1995, and broadcast some of the game. Notre Dame held on to beat the feisty Cadets, thanks to Ivory Covington's tackle on Ron Leshinski as the Army tight end tried to score on a two-point conversion with a minute to play.
I finally saw the Irish play in Notre Dame Stadium, a win over Army on November 18th, 2006. Best game day experience ever.
