The Boston College Eagles and Notre Dame Fighting Irish have met on the football field 20 times. This rivalry of the only Catholic universities in the United States who compete in the NCAA's Division I-A is referred to as the "Holy War." The teams will compete for the Ireland Trophy and Frank Leahy Memorial Bowl. Notre Dame currently leads the rivalry 11-9; however, the rivalry has been extended through 2019 with six more games to be played in future years.. Below are the top 5 games between the Eagles and Irish from a Boston College fan's perspective.

#5. 1999--Boston College 31, Notre Dame 29

In 1999, BC ended the Irish's 12 year bowl streak with one game. The Eagles were on a three-game winning streak and the Irish needed to win in order to have a shot at being bowl eligible. The game was tied 17-17 at the half, but Tim Hasselbeck put the Eagles ahead with a 1 yard sneak in the 3rd quarter. A lead the Eagles would never relinquish and the Irish would spend the holidays at home.

#4. 2002--Boston College 14, Notre Dame 7

In 2002, the Eagles headed to South Bend to face the No. 4 Fighting Irish. Notre Dame was clearly afraid of the unranked Eagles as they donned their green jerseys for the first time in 3 years and the first time at home in 17 seasons! Notre Dame fumbled 8 times and their back-up quarterback threw 2 interceptions. BC returned to Chestnut Hill having beaten a top-5 team for the first time since their victory over the No. 1 Irish in 1993.

#3. 2008--Boston College 17, Notre Dame 0

In 2008, the Eagles recorded their first shut out over the Irish and defeated Notre Dame for the sixth consecutive time.

#2. 2004--Boston College 24, Notre Dame 23

In 2004, unranked Boston College traveled to South Bend to take on Notre Dame, who was ranked No. 2 in the country. Although BC trailed the Irish 20-7 at the half, they would mount one of the most exciting comeback in the teams' history. After an exciting fourth down conversion, with 54 seconds left in the game, quarterback Paul Peterson threw a touchdown pass to Tony Gonzalez and the Eagles left South Bend victorious with a 24-23 win over the Irish.

#1. 1993--Boston College 41, Notre Dame 39

In one of the most exciting college football game of all time, the unranked Eagles defeated the No. 1 Fighting Irish on their home turf. Boston College led the Irish 38-17 with 11:13 left in the game. The stadium rocked as the Irish mounted a valiant, 22-point comeback. However, at the last second, David Gordon kicked a 41-yard field goal. It was BC's first win over Notre Dame and they crushed Notre Dame's hopes of a national championship. As a result of the game, the Eagles were featured on the November 29, 1993 Sports Illustrated cover.
