Notre Dame grinds out a 13-7 win over Army at the Polo Grounds. Grantland Rice, a writer for the New York Herald Tribune, covers the game. Rice, often known for his dramatic prose, wrote perhaps the most famous description of Notre Dame’s backfield (Jim Crowley, Elmer Layden, Don Miller, and Harry Stuhldreher), comparing them to the Four Horsemen of Apocalypse. The Four Horsemen would lead Knute Rockne’s Fighting Irish to their first official National Championship with a record of 10-0.
