UNDER THE DOME manages just 160 yards of total offense. Although the Irish complete only two passes for 19 yards, they amass 308 rushing yards, highlighted by fullback Larry Conjar's 116 on 25 carries — and all four touchdowns. Meanwhile, halfback Nick Eddy gains 65 yards on nine carries, halfback Bill Wolski logs 64 yards on 15 carries and quarterback Bill Zloch adds 50 on 12 attempts. 25 Years Ago: Oct. 20, 1990 In the final regular-season meet- ing of what had been an uninter- rupted series from 1971-90 (other than 1986), No. 6 Notre Dame de- feats No. 2 Miami 29-20. The two superpowers had won the last three national titles (Miami in 1987 and 1989, and Notre Dame in 1988), and in the process it be- come college football's most heated and hostile rivalry, leading the Fight- ing Irish administration to put the ki- bosh on it for a cooling down period (the two would not meet again until the 2010 Sun Bowl). Sophomore Craig Hentrich sets a single-game school record by kicking five field goals, and junior Raghib "Rocket" Ismail electrifies the audience with a 94-yard kickoff return that helps knot the game at 10. Ismail is inserted at tailback in the fourth quarter and his 13 carries for 100 yards helped seal the win, along with a dump-off pass from quarterback Rick Mirer to fullback Rodney Culver for a 21-yard score with 6:16 left in the contest. 10 Years Ago: Oct. 22, 2005 One week after the heartbreaking 34-31 loss at home to No. 1 USC, the No. 9 Irish respond with a 49-23 drubbing of BYU, which had defeated Notre Dame a year earlier in the opener. Quarterback Brady Quinn tosses a school-record six touchdown passes while completing 32 of 41 throws for 467 yards. Wide receiver Maurice Stovall also sets single-game school marks for receptions (14) and TD catches (four) while totaling 207 yards. Overshadowed is Jeff Samardzija adding 10 catches for 152 yards and two scores. — Lou Somogyi Junior Raghib "Rocket" Ismail's 94-yard kickoff return touchdown helped the Irish knock off No. 2 Miami 29-20 in 1990.
