NCAAF  > General NCAAF  > Notre Dame has absolutely dominated Texas, Oklahoma, and Alabama throughout history
June 19, 2010, 07:51 PM
Given the incredible amount of trash talking on this forum against Notre Dame that comes from fans of these three schools, especially here, I thought I would share some fun facts:

Notre Dame is 8-2 against Texas.

That includes 2 Cotton Bowl wins in Dallas when Texas was ranked #1, both of which denied Texas the national championship. Notre Dame's Cotton Bowl win in the 1970 season stopped Texas' 30 game winning streak.

My favorite---1977 season (78 Cotton Bowl): Notre Dame 38 #1 Texas 10 giving Notre Dame the 1977 national championship.


Notre Dame is 8-1 against Oklahoma.

No bowl games, but my favorite would be the 7-0 win at Norman in 1957 which stopped Oklahoma's 47 game win streak. And Notre Dame didn't even have a great team that year.

Notre Dame is 5-1 vs Alabama.

That includes 2 bowl wins both of which denied Alabama the national championship.
The 1973 Sugar Bowl over #1 Alabama gave #2 Notre Dame the national championsip.
The 1975 Orange Bowl win over #1 Alabama denied Bear another one.

Bear Bryant never beat Notre Dame. 0-4.


Notre Dame is 21-4 against arguably the 3 of the 6 most storied programs in history after Notre Dame (the others being Michigan and USC).
