St. Patrick’s is on a Saturday this year, which means that it’s the perfect year to go to O’Neill, NE and experience one of Nebraska’s best St. Paddy’s Day celebrations. This annual celebration draws visitors from around the country. O’Neill is also “Home of the World’s Largest Shamrock!”
We shared this last year, but it drew such interest that we decided to share it again:
Huskers vs. Notre Dame and the tail of two wives. –
Pre WWII, the University of Nebraska at Lincoln Cornhuskers actually shared a bitter rivalry with the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame. The two teams played each other nearly every year beginning in 1915 and continued through the famed “Four Horseman” era of Notre Dame’s history. The Four Horsemen’s only loss came to Nebraska.
The story goes that the rivalry officially ended when USC went looking for a national rival. The wife of the USC head coach convinced the wife of then Notre Dame coach, Knute Rockne, to push for a USC rivalry since it included a bi-annual trip to sunny Los Angeles.
