The official kick-off of the Irish football season may still be a few months away, but the Irish loyal came out Saturday to get a preview.
Fans packed the parking lots of Notre Dame Stadium to tailgate before the 84th annual Blue Gold Game.
The game gives fans a sneak peek of what's to come for the 2013 Irish season. The team will have a few months off after Saturday's game before they start practicing again in August.
The Blue Gold Game kicks off at 1 p.m. at Notre Dame Stadium.
