Notre Dame announces sellout streak continues


Notre Dame Stadium is sold out. The university announced that all tickets for the six home games this season have been sold, keeping alive a streak that’ll hit 250 games when the Irish open things at home against Nevada next weekend.

It’s a streak that hasn’t been without some close moments. But as construction on Notre Dame’s Campus Crossroads project finishes before the 2017 season, it’ll assure the athletic department that all tickets are gone with the focus now on next year—and an opening game against Temple with Georgia arriving in South Bend the next week.

Notre Dame’s sellout streak is second only to Nebraska’s 347 games, the Cornhuskers having sold out every home game since 1962. There’s a large distance between Notre Dame and the third-longest streak, with Oregon having sold out 110-straight games at Autzen Stadium.
