On Saturday afternoon, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and Syracuse Orange took the field for a football game in a baseball stadium. The two teams traveled to the Bronx for a match-up at Yankee Stadium.

To pay homage to the great baseball tradition the Yankees have, Notre Dame thought it would be a good idea to wear pinstripes - like the Yankees. The idea sounded great, key word "sounded."

When the Irish took the field with pinstriped pants, college football fans watching at home cringed.

Here's just a sample of the reaction from those watching today's game between Notre Dame and Syracuse.

You can see the uniforms here.

Notre Dame won't care about the outrage. The Irish raced out to an early 7-0 lead and then intercepted a pass from Syracuse quarterback Eric Dungey. Notre Dame kicked a field goal to take a 10-0 lead with just under seven minutes left in the first quarter.
