Green's Cardinal rallied from a 24‑7 deficit to pull off the upset against head coach Lou Holtz's juggernaut. Stanford still finished with only a 5‑6 record. NOV. 20, 1993: BOSTON COLLEGE 41, NOTRE DAME 39 Notre Dame was 10‑0 and ranked No. 1. Plus, it had annihilated Bos‑ ton College a year earlier, 54‑7. Head coach Tom Coughlin's Eagles were on a seven‑game winning streak and would finish 9‑3 and No. 13 nationally — but they were still a double‑digit underdog on the road to an Irish team that had just upset No. 1 Florida State. Although the Irish rallied from a 38‑17 fourth‑quarter deficit to take the lead, Boston College won on David Gordon's 41‑yard field goal as time elapsed … and Notre Dame football hasn't been quite the same since then. SEPT. 2, 1995: NORTHWESTERN 17, NOTRE DAME 15 This probably shouldn't be listed — but at the time, it was consid‑ ered maybe the most embarrassing home loss ever. Northwestern had not posted a winning season since 1971 and had lost 14 straight to Notre Dame by an average of 31.7 points. Even though Lou Holtz's Irish were 6‑5‑1 the previous year, they were 27‑point favorites against fourth‑year head coach Gary Barnett's Wildcats. In retrospect, that victory by the Wildcats wasn't as dramatic as origi‑ nally thought. Northwestern went on to finish 10‑1, shared the Big Ten title with Ohio State and played USC in the Rose Bowl, where it lost. NOV. 22, 2008: SYRACUSE 24, NOTRE DAME 23 This wasn't a premier Notre Dame team — yet the Irish were still a 19.5‑point favorite at home against the 2‑8 Orange that had lost at home to Akron, 42‑28, and had just fired head coach Greg Robinson earlier in the week after a 39‑14 loss at home to UConn. Notre Dame held a 23‑10 fourth‑ quarter advantage before Syracuse scored two touchdowns, the latter with 42 seconds left, and became the first eight‑loss team ever to vanquish the Irish. OCT. 30, 2010: TULSA 28, NOTRE DAME 27 Tulsa actually was a good team this year and was only a nine‑point under‑ dog … but c'mon. It entered the game 4‑3, including a 65‑28 loss to Okla‑ homa State and a 21‑18 defeat to SMU. First‑year head coach Brian Kelly eschewed a field goal attempt and went for broke for a touchdown that resulted in an end‑zone interception by Tulsa with 36 seconds left. NOV. 15, 2014: NORTHWESTERN 43, NOTRE DAME 40 (OT) The Wildcats make their third ap‑ pearance on the list. They entered the contest as a 16.5‑point underdog at No. 15 and 7‑2 Notre Dame. North‑ western was 3‑6 and lost four in a row while averaging 12.5 points per game with an anemic offense. Yet the Irish managed to find a way to lose, including going for two points, and failing, after a touch‑ down put them ahead 40‑29. Note: Notre Dame lost several games at home under head coach Gerry Faust (1981‑85) in which they were heavy/double‑digit favorites, in‑ cluding Arizona (1982), Michigan State (1983) and Air Force (1983‑84), but be‑ cause the Irish never finished in the top 25, the shock value decreased some. ✦ MEMORABILIA Vintage Notre Dame Memorabilia Augie's Locker Room ND Stadium Items, Jerseys, Helmets, Autographs and One of a Kind Rockne Items.
