2020 was a historical year for the world and for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish football program. Because of the Coronavirus pandemic, the Irish joined a conference in football for the first time in its existence. That ACC was the obvious choice as the rest of Notre Dame’s athletic teams (besides the reining Big 10 champion hockey team) are in that conference — and the presidents of those institutions were more than happy to add more Notre Dame games to its lineup.
The Irish did remarkably well by being the only regular season undefeated ACC school with a 9-0 record that included a win over the #1 Clemson Tigers. Notre Dame fell short in the rematch with Clemson in the ACC Championship game... but the season was still a success with a return to the College Football Playoff in the Rose Bowl.
Now that we’re in 2021, we can put that all behind us as Notre Dame is an Independent football program once again. Celebrate this return to our roots with this fantastic clothing line from Breaking T. Shirts, hoodies, and youth shirts are available!
