When people think about sports around here, they often gravitate toward just one – Notre Dame football.

There’s no doubt football season shines the brightest on The Bend as the Fighting Irish play big-time opponents in primetime. But all good things come to an end, even if we’re sad to see them go. When football season ends there are winter sports ready to kick into high gear.

Women’s basketball, men’s basketball and men’s hockey pack their arenas and attract visitors from all over the country.
