Mc 8 Photo by Matt Cashore '94

In honor of the fast-approaching football season, our photo this week features a Fighting Irish giant.


University photographer Matt Cashore ’94 was wandering campus earlier this month when he captured this memorable shot of the Frank Leahy statue outside Notre Dame Stadium’s south gate. Though Leahy’s likeness won’t welcome fans for a home game until mid-September, the season’s away-game opener will be here before you know it.


To keep track of the “countdown to kickoff” — which this week dipped below 20 days — follow @NDFootball on Twitter, where they track the remaining time and introduce you to players each day whose jersey numbers match the countdown clock.


Photo of the Week highlights images of notable happenings on campus and in the Notre Dame family around the world. Have a snapshot you think we should see? Email to be considered for publication.
