BCS Championship: Day 5

Jan 6, 2013, 11:57 PM EST


After six long weeks, here we are on National Championship Eve, less than 24 hours away from the biggest Notre Dame game in almost a quarter century. Wow.

It has been a heck of a week for Fighting Irish Digital Media, and the fun continued last night at the Notre Dame Pep Rally.

FIDM caught up with each of the guest speakers – Mike Golic, Joe Theismann, Tony Rice, Pat Terrell, Martin Short and Lou Holtz – before they went on stage.

It was an amazing scene in South Beach, as close to 25,000 fans gathered on the sand for the rally, which lasted about 45 minutes. If you didn’t get a chance to make it out for the historic rally, you can watch it below.

This morning, head coach Brian Kelly made his final media appearance before the big game, speaking at Harbor Beach Marriott for about 20 minutes.

Several members of the Irish visited Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, brightening the day of a few children and their families.

Finally, the team took to Sun Life Stadium for its official bowl photo and a final walkthrough. Most of tomorrow’s updates will probably come via Twitter, so stay tuned to @FightingIrish, @NDFootball and @NDSportsBlogger.

Go Irish. Beat Bama.
