SOUTH BEND, Ind.--- The new year, and new season for the Fighting Irish has begun, and fans were geared up for the first home game.
Per tradition on the Fridays before a home game, fans are allowed to walk down the tunnel and check out the field.
This year; however, several people wanted to check out the new field turf.
You may remember the university sold off sections of sod when they replaced the field with the new turf.
Also fans noticed a slight difference in the uniforms.
Notre dame switched from Adiddas to Under Amour during the off season.
