1966 Notre Dame Vs. Michigan State Football Game
The 1966 Michigan State vs. Notre Dame football game ("the game of the century") remains one of the greatest, and most controversial, games in college football history. The game was played in Michigan State's Spartan Stadium on November 19, 1966. Michigan State entered the contest 9–0 and ranked #2, while Notre Dame entered the contest 8–0 but ranked #1. Notre Dame elected not to try for the endzone on the final series; thus, the game ended in a 10–10 tie with both schools recording national championships.
