This Saturday, Notre Dame will play its annual Shamrock Series game, this time hosting Boston College.
Notre Dame is considered the home team despite the game being held in Boston’s Fenway Park, home of the Red Sox.
It’s the first time in 47 years that a football game is being played in Fenway. The last game was in 1968 when the Boston Patriots hosted the Cincinnati Bengals in their last game in the AFL.
In preparation, there have been several time-lapse videos of the historic stadium getting a makeover into a football field.
Here’s one of the stadium’s entire make-over:
And here’s one, specifically, of the goal-posts being set up.
ESPN also got a behind-the-scenes look at the process, captured in a cool photo essay.
Interestingly, Fenway Park’s famous hand-operated MLB scoreboard will have the scores of the rest of the college football games around the country.
Lost in the excitement of the venue, Notre Dame badly needs to win this game and perhaps win out to hold onto their No. 4 ranking.
