Notre Dame student expressed their joy by charging the field on Saturday night after the Irish beat a #1 ranked team for the first time since 1993. Notre Dame’s school president, however, is less enthused.

The Irish defeated then-#1 Clemson 47-40 in a double-overtime thriller for the ages on Saturday night. After this, the student charged the field.

Despite the history-making joy of the moment, Notre Dame President John I. Jenkins issued a statement on Sunday expressing how “disappointed” he was with the students’ behavior.

“As exciting as last night’s victory against Clemson was, it was very disappointing to see evidence of widespread disregard of our health protocols at many gatherings over the weekend,” Rev. Jenkins said.

Jenkins did not confine himself to expressions of disappointment, however. He also laid out several new Covid-related steps and restrictions for students that will follow as a result of charging the field.
