Newsstand: How Notre Dame football has fared wearing green jerseys
Notre Dame will wear green jerseys for the first time in four years Saturday against California. The Fighting Irish are putting a four-game winning streak in green jerseys on the line.
The Irish last wore green against Florida State on senior day in 2018. Notre Dame won, 42-13. The last time Notre Dame lost in green uniform tops was against Michigan in 2021. There is an asterisk associated with that 35-31 defeat in Ann Arbor, though; the jerseys were white with green numbers.
Here’s a look at Notre Dame’s history in uniforms involving green dating back to 1983 courtesy of the Irish’s athletics communications department. The Irish are 9-6 in jerseys with any sort of green on them.

Quote of the day
“It feels like a dream to me or a bad nightmare, but it has to go in the right direction. I’m at a loss of words with these questions just because if you could see everyday how these people treat each other and how close this family really is compared to how it was when I first got here and how different things are, it would make no sense to you either.”
