Notre Dame women's basketball play on the USS Yorktown

CHARLESTON, S.C. -- It's the first stadium event ever to be held on the flight deck of the USS Yorktown and the Notre Dame Women's Basketball team got to be a part of it.

The "Carrier Classic" in South Carolina is in honor of Veterans' Day.

Fans filled the seats on board the battleship at Patriots Point.

The Irish women beat Ohio State 57-51 Friday night and in the men's match-up, Ohio State faced Marquette.

The director of the event says everything was assembled in just one week.
