The Irish are a combined 32-16 (.667) in seasons that send them away from home for at least of their first six games, including wins in the liberty bowl Orange Bowl following the 1983 and 89 campaigns, respectively.


In 1983, Gerry Faust' third year on the job, the Irish faced four of their first five games on the road and wound up 3-1, including a 30-6 win over #7 South Carolina.


Faust's first year schedule (1981) also boasted five straight games at Notre Dame Stadium and the team came away with wins over Michigan State, Navy and Georgia Tech en route to a 3-2 homestand.


In the three seasons of the last 20 that have sent the irish on the road for four of their first six games, the team has compiled a combined 14-2 home record led by 5-0 home seasons from Holtz in 1987 and 1989.
