Despite 1957 not being a year Notre Dame seriously competed for a national championship, it was a season that featured one of the biggest wins in the entire history of Fighting Irish football.

Led by head coach Terry Brennan, the 4-2 Irish marched into Norman, Oklahoma on November 16 to take on the an Oklahoma team that hadn’t lost in its last 47 games. The Sooners entered as a three touchdown favorite and very much alive in the national championship picture.

They walked out after being handed one of the greatest upsets college football has ever seen.

As we learn today of Terry Brennan’s passing at 93 years old, take a few minutes and watch footage from that all-time upset below:
