The countdown until Notre Dame football returns to the field is officially under way. We started our countdown by looking back at Lou Holtz in honor of his 100 wins as Notre Dame’s head coach and will have various ways to count down the days and numbers.
Today we look back at Jack Elder and his key play that helped Notre Dame to the 1929 national championship. In Elder’s final game at Notre Dame, he intercepted an Army pass at the Notre Dame four yard line and returned it 96 yards for the only score of the game.
Notre Dame would win 7-0 and be crowned national champions as a result.
