The Chicken Soup Game

by Paul Kostolansky ’89, illustations by Greg Broyles (Brokaw Enterprises)


This children’s book, appropriate for ages 5 through 11, tells the story of Notre Dame’s come-from-behind victory against the Houston Cougars in the 1979 Cotton Bowl. The book features Irish greats Joe Montana, Bob Crable, and Vagas Ferguson, and illustrates the importance of a never-say-die attitude . . . and a little chicken soup. A “For Mom and Dad” page at the end offers a game summary and statistics.
