BCS title game: Notre Dame vs. Alabama live updates - latimes.com: "Outlined against orange seats and mostly cloudy nighttime skies, Notre Dame rides again.
The Fighting Irish seek their 12th consensus national title on Monday night — the first since 1988.
Notre Dame, if it wins, will hoist its first BCS crystal championship football.
Anyone know what year Notre Dame won its first national title and what organization awarded the title to the fighting Irish?
Hint: there were "horsemen" involved.
The answer is 1924 and the organization was the Helms Athletic Foundation.
Interestingly, legendary coach Knute Rockne was already in his seventh season in South Bend when Notre Dame capped a 10-0 season in 1924 with a win over Pop Warner-coached Stanford in the Rose Bowl."
