The University of Notre Dame is a private, Catholic research university located near South Bend, Indiana. The Notre Dame Fighting Irish football team is a storied program, having won 13 NCAA National Championship titles. Its last national title was won in 1988 under legendary coach Lou Holtz, who led the team to an undefeated season that included a victory over the West Virginia Mountaineers in the Fiesta Bowl. The program also has the distinction of having produced 50 members of the College Football Hall of Fame and seven Heisman Trophy winners.
The football team is noted for being an independent member of the NCAA, meaning that it does not belong to any conference. This gives it more flexibility in scheduling games, although it has been a point of controversy in recent years. Since 1991, Notre Dame football games have been televised nationally on NBC, making it the only school in the NCAA with a national television contract. Brian Kelly, in his sixth season as head coach, will lead the Fighting Irish in their 128th season of football in 2015.
