The New York Mayor's Relief Fund wanted to match the National Champion Irish against the New York Giants in a postseason charity event to benefit the unemployed, but Coach Rockne countered with an offer of fielding a team of "Notre Dame All-Stars," consisting of noteworthy players from past Rockne teams. The result? The winners were the charity, the Notre Dame mystique, and the Giants, roughly in that order. The final score on the field was Giants, 24; ND, 0. It was to be the last Notre Dame game that Rockne ever coached.
