Notre Dame We're getting our first full look at the newly installed turf at Notre Dame Stadium.

Video from a NewsCenter 16 viewer showed the inside the stadium Monday. The viewer says the tour guide told him they were only the second group to see the field done.

The Irish kick off their home season on August 30th against Rice.

Notre dame stadium first opened in 1930 and it has had natural grass ever since. However, over the last few years the university says it has been tough to maintain good field conditions, partially because commencement is held there.
