Notre Dame Football 2017: Team Stats, Schedule, News Preview

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish football team is the intercollegiate football team representing the University of Notre Dame in Notre Dame, Indiana. The team is currently coached by Brian Kelly and plays its home games at the campus’s Notre Dame Stadium, which has a capacity of 80,795 fans. Notre Dame is one of four schools that competes as an Independent at the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Football Bowl Subdivision level; however, they play five games a year against opponents from the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC), which Notre Dame is a member of in all other sports except ice hockey.

Notre Dame is one of the most iconic and successful programs in college football. The team has 21 national championships that are recognized by the NCAA, which is first out of all FBS schools in the NCAA era. Notre Dame and Ohio State share the record of seven Heisman Trophy winners, and the program has produced 97 consensus All-Americans, 33 unanimous All-Americans, and 50 members of the College Football Hall of Fame, all NCAA records. Notre Dame has had 495 players selected in the NFL Draft, second only to USC.

All Notre Dame home games have been televised by NBC since 1991, and Notre Dame is the only school to have such a contract. It was the only independent program to be part of the Bowl Championship Series coalition and its guaranteed payout, and it has one of the largest, most widespread fan bases in college football. These factors help make Notre Dame one of the most financially valuable football programs in the country, which allows the school to remain an independent. wiki
