PASSING THE ROCK
West Point, N.Y. | Nov. 1, 1913
Army knew nothing about the school from Indiana when it came to West Point. Notre Dame quarterback Gus Dorais and end Knute Rockne introduced themselves quickly with a little-trusted weapon: the forward pass. They connected early against the Cadets for a 25-yard touchdown. Dorais went 13-of-17 for 243 yards in a 35-13 rout. The aerial game -- and the Irish -- would never be little-known again.
