This was one of the "Games Of The Century" that really lived up to its billing, as the 10-0-0 Irish met the 11-0-0 Crimson Tide in the aftermath of a New Orleans monsoon. And after a blown Alabama extra point gave Notre Dame a shaky 24-23 lead, an improvised 36 yard pass from Tom Clements to Robin Weber got the Irish out of the shadow of their goal line with 2:12 to play, and from there they were able to run out the clock. For Bama fans, it was a case of so near and yet so far.
