Cincinnati prepares for the atmosphere of Notre Dame
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) – As is the case with a handful of other opponents, the Cincinnati Bearcats will be walking around Notre Dame Stadium to soak up all the magic of the house built by Rockne.
It will be the first time that almost all Bearcats have set foot on this sacred land.
Notre Dame and Cincinnati have not clashed since 1900.
Friday’s game is officially sold out and it’s the first sale of the year for Notre Dame and you know these fans are going to bring it.
Bearcats head coach Luke Fickle wanted to bring his guys to the stadium on Friday when it’s a little quieter.
“We will arrive on Friday, let’s go to the stadium,” Fickle said. “We stay two or three minutes from the stadium, so we will have the opportunity to go in there, just walk around, take a look at the pitch, let them see it and everything like that, take the pictures or whatever. Because the same thing, when you go there on Saturday you want them to focus on the things that they have to do. It’s going to be hard enough not to have these other distractions, so try to put that in. aside because it’s a big deal and there isn’t a kid on that team that played there other than obviously Michael Young, but for the most part. There is obviously an amazing story that we can absorb. and permeate us. ”
Brian Kelly led the Bearcats before coming to Notre Dame.
The Irish face No.7 Cincinnati at 2:30 p.m. Saturday on WNDU.
