Sept. 22, 1956: In the first-ever September loss for a Notre Dame team, the Irish fall to Southern Methodist University 19-13 in Dallas. Notre Dame fakes a punt in the fourth quarter to score and tie the game 13-13, but Mustang quarterback Charlie Arnold throws a 31-yard pass to Lon Slaughter to set up a 14- yard touchdown run for the win as time expires.
