When is the last time Notre Dame football lost at home?

For the first time in more than four years, Notre Dame football lost a home game, falling to the Cincinnati Bearcats, and ending their playoff dreams.

For the first time in 1,485 days, Notre Dame football lost a home game.

Notre Dame was outplayed from the opening kick to the last play against the No. 7 Cincinnati Bearcats.

Notre Dame’s playoff hopes are on life support and there may be a quarterback change underway with Drew Pyne or Tyler Buchner taking snaps from Jack Coan who was ineffective and benched vs. the Bearcats.

When is the last time Notre Dame lost a home game?

For the first time since Sept. 9, 2017, against Georgia, Notre Dame walked out of their home stadium as losers. This snapped a streak of 20 straight home wins.

That Georgia team ended up going to the National Championship Game where they lost in overtime to Alabama. Cincinnati may have a chance to make the playoff as a Group of Five team, even though the committee may not reward them even if they go undefeated.

That 2017 game was a 20-19 loss but today’s loss was much more humbling as Cincinnati had never beaten a top-10 team in program history. And for them to do at Notre Dame Stadium where their fans were more vocal than Fighting Irish fans, that’s all kind of disappointing.

It’s time to start a new home winning streak. There is no time to hang heads and wallow in defeat. That won’t get a team anywhere. It’s time to fight and protect the home turf.
