And you thought the Pope drew crowds?

Temple Uni and Notre Dame [Temple ranked 21 ND ranked 9] play today.

Lincoln Center Stadium is sold out. [60,000+]

Temple is 7 and 0 for the first time in it's 100 years of Football.

I just wish that Bill Campell, who passed this year at the age of 90, could have seen this.
He was the sportscaster that did the Temple home games for 40 years. The TV crews sometimes out numbered the fans.

The final score was ND 24, Temple 20.

But the game was still anyone's until the last 3 minutes. Temple showed that they can play any school.
A quote from the coach of ND, "We had no idea that Temple was that good".
