This Date in College Football History

October 29, 1955: Before a record crowd of 59,475 in Notre Dame Stadium, No. 9 Notre Dame, led by future Heisman Trophy winner Paul Hornung (1985 College Football Hall of Fame inductee), upsets No. 4 Navy on Knute Rockne Memorial Day, 25 years after the legendary coach's last season in South Bend. The 21-7 loss ends the Middies' nine game- winning streak.
