Since joining CBS Sports in 1967, Don Criqui has provided play-by-play television commentary for every NFL season. In addition, he participated in NBC Radio’s coverage of Super Bowl XX and XXI. Don Criqui is also the current radio broadcaster for University of Notre Dame’s Fighting Irish, on both CBS Sports and the Notre Dame/IMG Sports Network. He was recently asked to write the foreword to a new book, The History of Notre Dame Football.
The Fighting Irish, one of the best-known college football teams in history, play at Notre Dame Stadium, which Deseret News has chosen as one of the 13 college stadiums that football fans must visit. Completed in 1930, Notre Dame Stadium is home to seven winners of the Heisman Trophy. Since 1966, the 80,795-seat stadium has sold out all but one game. It has, for the most part, retained its original construction. The benches are still made of wood, and the striped end zones are some of the most widely recognized in the world of college sports.
