Notre Dame football: ND moment recreated

In the summer of 1913, Notre Dame football players Knute Rockne and Gus Dorais spent their spare time on the Cedar Point Beach in Sandusky, Ohio, perfecting the forward pass -- a legal, but risky and seldom-used play.

That season, the pair unleashed their passing game on an unsuspecting Army team. The Irish rolled to a 35-13 victory -- a startling performance that catapulted Notre Dame into national prominence and changed the sport forever.

Next Friday members of the Rockne and Dorais families are headed to back to Cedar Point Beach to recreate the memories of this historic development for the game of football. Festivities start at 11 a.m. EDT.
