If you didn't get to see the pre-game celebrations in person, don't worry; College Spun was all over it. Check out pictures of all the action at Notre Dame's game vs Purdue this past Saturday. Here are 15 of the best pictures (big thanks to Kristin Bowser for formatting):
The light at the end of the tunnel; Irish football was back.
Need a ride to the game? Catch a bus with a mobile golden dome included.
Dogs are Domer fans too? You'd better believe it.
Great displays of food are always a common theme.
These guys apparently have a massive hotdog eating contest as part of their ND tailgating.
Fans who rode the golden dome bus apparently received sweet shirts. And know how to chug beer.
Is this a Notre Dame or a Steelers game? Both are fine by me.
Blue hair, don't care?
The coolest cornhole set of all time. I wonder if Touchdown Jesus' hands go down if you don't make it in.
How many ND students would love to be toted from tailgate to tailgate?
Of course, some true Irishmen always show up.
The best scene of the day: Notre Dame kicks a game-winning field goal with seven seconds left to play.
The Band of the Fighting Irish spells "ND" before running onto the field.
Halftime shows at Notre Dame are always phenomenal.
Irish Flag, Gold Helmet, and a bunch of friends...what else do you need?
