Heat and rain don't deter Irish fans

South Bend, Ind. The rainy weather may have put a damper on some game day plans, but it provided some relief after this week's soaring temperatures and humidity.

Despite Saturday's cool-down, Notre Dame made sure it was prepared to help fans beat the heat.

Several cooling stations were set up around the stadium and those heading to the game were advised to wear lighter clothing and hats and stay in the shade as much as possible.

With so many people crowded in the stadium and parking lot, security asked people to look out for each other and stay hydrated.

“We've instituted our extreme heat and humidity plan, we started a couple weeks ago when we trended the weather,” Mike Seamon, Director of Game Day Operations said. “We have more bottles of water, more bags of ice, our first aid stations are going to be stocked with everything. More EMTs, just more of everything.”

Fans needing to cool off were able to go to pop up tents or step inside the JACC for relief.
