Notre Dame Oklahoma History Football

In these photos taken Nov. 16, 1957 and provided by provided by the University of Oklahoma Athletics Communications, Notre Dame's Dick Lynch (25) runs for the game's only touchdown during the fourth quarter of an NCAA college football game against Oklahoma in Norman, Okla. Notre Dame has had some great victories in its 125 years of playing college football, yet none was as improbable as the 7-0 victory at second-ranked Oklahoma in 1957. That victory ended the Sooners' NCAA-record winning streak at 47 games and came just a season after the Sooners beat the Irish 40-0 in South Bend, still the most lopsided home loss in Notre Dame history.(AP Photo/provided by the University of Oklahoma Athletics Communications)
