During Pregame warmups, Joe Montana and the Irish players wore their traditional navy blue jerseys. Following their warmups, they went into the locker room and discovered that head coach, Dan Devine, had placed green jerseys in their lockers. The players quickly changed into the new jerseys and returned to the field, followed by a Trojan Horse, containing the team captains, being dragged by the Notre Dame cheerleaders. The sight of the team wearing green sent the crowd at Notre Dame Stadium into a frenzy that would carry on through the entire game. Notre Dame went on to win the game and kept wearing the green jerseys all the way to a victory over Texas in the Cotton Bowl and captured the National Championship.
