Gold Coast Tickets does not want you to miss out on the action as the 2012 Notre Dame Fighting Irish are set to kick off their college football season. The Fighting Irish will operate under head coach Brian Kelly at Notre Dame Stadium, which holds just over 80,000 roaring fans bleeding gold and navy blue. The NFL plays home to an enormous amount of former Fighting Irish, most notably including: Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Brady Quinn, New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck, and Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd. The Fighting Irish boast some NCAA records, having 96 All Americans and 7 Heisman Trophy winners, more than any other school. In addition, they have 13 National Championships, also more than any other school in Division 1 football. Notre Dame’s most recent National Championship came in 1993 under Lou Holtz, but they have yet to be back to the anticipated game since that season. Last year they made it to the Champs Sports Bowl, but did not come up victorious. This year they hope to turn things around and make a run for a BCS bowl, but it will not be easy with one of the toughest schedules in the nation. The Fighting Irish will play all of their rivals this season. First, they open up the season at home against Navy, the longest standing rival in college football history, playing each other for 83 straight seasons. Second, they will host Purdue for the rights to the prestigious Shillelagh Trophy. Third, they will travel to East Landing, Michigan, to take on a good Spartan team for the Megaphone Trophy. Fourth, they will come back home to try and beat their 2nd major rival, the Michigan Wolverines. Next, the Fighting Irish will match up with fairly new Pac 12 rival Stanford. Then, Notre Dame will travel to Boston College to play the Holy War. Finally, they will finish up their season in beautiful Southern California to play their biggest rival the USC Trojans. However, these are not the only tough games of the season for the Fighting Irish, as they also have to play college football powerhouses such as: Miami (FL), BYU, Oklahoma, Pittsburgh, and Wake Forest.
