Watch: Notre Dame snaps bowl losing streak in 2008 Hawaii Bowl

·1 min read

In case you haven’t heard, there will be no live sports this Christmas Eve. The one event that was supposed to take place, the Hawaii Bowl between Hawaii and Memphis, has been canceled after the Rainbow Warriors’ roster was ravaged by injuries, transfers and COVID-19. Those who are hungry for this particular bowl will have to wait another year.

However, if you must watch the bowl that takes places in the Aloha State, check out SportsCenter highlights of the 2008 edition between the Warriors and Notre Dame. Going in, the Irish had not won a bowl since the 1994 Cotton Bowl. Jimmy Clausen and Golden Tate ended that drought by setting program bowl records in a 49-21 victory. The game also was notable for the Irish wearing last names on the back of their jerseys and Michael Floyd’s helmet losing a bit of the iconic gold paint.

After you watch these highlights, go have a safe and happy holiday with whoever it is you care about if you can:
