October 10, 1987 Northwestern, behind two touchdowns from Eric Dalius, builds a big lead before hanging on to defeat Notre Dame, 29-26, in a Centennial League contest. After the Tigers fall behind 6-0, Dalius scores on a pair of three-yard runs. The winners, coached by Bob Mitchell, also receive a 68-yard TD run from Joe Fatzinger and a 24-yard scoring strike from Lance Miller to John Dicataldo in running off 29 consecutive points. The Crusaders rally with three scores and threaten to take the lead but Steve Clay intercepts a pass to preserve the NW victory.
