SOUTH BEND — The Fighting Irish of Notre Dame are going green for the final home game of this season.

Members of the Notre Dame football team will be donning green jerseys for Saturday night’s game against the Florida State Seminoles, it was announced Friday.

The green jerseys were requested by the Irish seniors, according to a news release from Under Armour.

The last time Notre Dame wore green jerseys at home was in 2007 against USC, under head coach Charlie Weis. Notre Dame lost that game 38-0.

Coach Brian Kelly and the Notre Dame players released a video Thursday hinting of a switch to green. The video was based on a famous scene from the film “Rudy.”
