Crews work to remove a foot of snow from Notre Dame stadium before kickoff
It was all hands on deck on Notre Dame's campus Friday, as the University of Notre Dame was forced to remove over a foot of snow from the entire football stadium, in only 48 hours.
"We have a lot of friends at Soldier Field in Chicago who play a lot of games in December and January when it snows more often, and they were instrumental when it comes to helping us formulate a plan," says Mike Seamon, the director of game day operations.
The plan was to start from the bottom of the stadium on the field, and move up, row by row, until crews got to the top. Officials used most of their grounds crews and hundreds of volunteers to complete the task in time for kickoff.
