Notre Dame Football: Taking a National Perspective

By Teagan Dillon • April 12th, 2017

The Shamrock Series — Notre Dame’s home-away-from-home series — started in 2009 at the Alamo Dome and became a unique way for Notre Dame to reach its fans across the country.

With interesting venues and special uniforms, the Shamrock Series has been deemed by many as a success since the beginning.

In 2007, the Irish are taking a break from the Shamrock Series to add an extra home game following the completion of the Campus Crossroads project. This video is a tour of the previous eight Shamrock Series locations:

Notre Dame by the Numbers: Breakdown of Fighting Irish Sports Statistics

Notre Dame hockey’s regular-season average attendance hit its lowest point since the opening of the Compton Family Ice Arena in October 2011.

Despite the low turnout, the program is having one of its most successful seasons in years. The fourth-seeded Irish topped both Minnesota and second-seeded UMass Lowell to head to the Frozen Four this weekend for the first time since 2011 and the third time in program history.

Disparities in Irish Men’s Basketball Scoring

On a 13-member team, four Notre Dame men’s basketball players scored 2,140 of the season’s 2,783 points:

  • Bonzie Colson (639)
  • V.J. Beachem (522)
  • Matt Farrell (506)
  • Steve Vasturi (473)

Four players scored nearly 78 percent of the team’s points, so the key to next year’s success could be a fifth starter who can score in the 400-point range. Temple Gibbs, this year’s fifth starter, scored 168. — Erin McAuliffe
