Here's every Shamrock Series uniform Notre Dame has worn since the tradition began
Nearly every season since 2009, Notre Dame has held a Shamrock Series game at a neutral site venue.
This season, the Fighting Irish will face BYU in Las Vegas. They revealed their new alternate uniforms for that game on Wednesday morning.
Since 2012, Notre Dame has debuted new alternate uniforms as part of the Shamrock Series.
Here’s a look at every Shamrock Series uniform Notre Dame has worn since the tradition began:
2012: Notre Dame def. Miami, 41-3
This was Notre Dame’s first Shamrock Series alternate. The game was played at Soldier Field in Chicago. George Atkinson III and Cierre Wood each rushed for more than 100 yards in this contest.
2013: Notre Dame def. Arizona State, 37-34
Notre Dame went with an all-white uniform and gold Shamrock helmets for its matchup with Arizona State in 2013. Tommy Rees struggled in this game, completing 17-of-38 passes. Dan Fox’s pick 6 in the final minutes of the game turned out to be the difference.
2014: Notre Dame def. Purdue, 30-14
Notre Dame went with all blue uniforms for this game, sticking with the gold helmet. Quarterback Everett Golson was the star of the show as he threw for 259 yards and 2 touchdowns. He also rushed for a team-high 56 yards and another score on the ground.
2015: Notre Dame def. Boston College, 19-16
Notre Dame’s win over Boston College in 2015 was the debut of the all-green Shamrock series uniforms. This was also one of the closest games in this series. The Fighting Irish were out-scored 13-3 in the fourth quarter, but did just enough to hold on. Chris Brown and Amir Carlisle each had over 100 receiving yards, but Deshone Kizer threw 3 interceptions.
2016: Notre Dame def. Army, 44-6
Notre Dame went away from its tradition color palette for these uniforms, but it didn’t hold back the Fighting Irish on the field. They thrashed Army 44-6 in San Antonio at the Alamodome. Notre Dame also beat Army in the Shamrock series in 2010.
2018: Notre Dame def. Syracuse, 36-3
Perhaps the most memorable of the Shamrock Series alternates, Notre Dame debuted pinstripe pants in 2018 when it took on Syracuse at Yankee Stadium. Notre Dame won 36-3 as Ian Book threw for 292 yards and 2 touchdowns.
2021: Notre Dame def. Wisconsin, 41-13
Notre Dame blasted Wisconsin 41-13 thanks to a 31-point outburst in the fourth quarter. The Badgers held strong for awhile, but Graham Mertz threw 3 interceptions in that quarter — including a pair that were returned for touchdowns. Notre Dame and Wisconsin will meet again at Lambeau Field in 2026.
2022: Notre Dame vs. BYU on Oct. 8 in Las Vegas
