(December 5, 2012)
In 33 days, Notre Dame will face Alabama for the national title, 39 years after their first matchup in the Sugar Bowl for the 1973 championship.
One of the key contributors to the ’73 Irish team was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame.
Tight end Dave Casper, a 1973 All-American who co-captained the Irish to the national championship, was inducted Tuesday night at the National Football Foundation Annual Awards Dinner in New York City, along with Purdue halfback Otis Armstrong, BYU quarterback Ty Detmer, Miami coach Jimmy Johnson and several others.
Casper is the 44th Notre Dame player in the Hall.
