Awakening: The Season That Brought Notre Dame Back
Unranked heading into the season, Notre Dame returned to college football's epicenter in 2012--finishing a perfect 12-0, ascending to No. 1 in the national rankings, and advancing to face Alabama in the BCS National Championship Game. "Awakening" takes readers through every compelling moment--from the season-opening win over Navy in Dublin, Ireland, to defeat by the Crimson Tide in Miami. This unforgettable season is captured through stories and photos from staff of the award-winning "South Bend Tribune." This collector's edition takes you on a journey through coach Brian Kelly's coaching evolution, quarterback Everett Golson's rise, tight end Tyler Eifert's late-season surge and the tragedy and triumphs of Heisman Trophy runner-up Manti Te'o. Vivid photography helps tell the story every step along the way.
