SILENT NIGHT: The SOUTH BEND TRIBUNE's Hansen wrote under the header, "Smooth ND Night Game May Mean More." There was “relative quiet” following last Saturday's Notre Dame-USC game, a rare night contest at Notre Dame Stadium. Notre Dame Dir of Game Day Operations Mike Seamon said, “There’s a lot at stake there. And, for it to go as well as it did this weekend, I think speaks well of a lot of different people and a lot of different groups who came together to pull it off.” There were “six arrests on campus Saturday night -- three inside the stadium, three in the lots surrounding it.” Seamon: “That’s right in line with what a normal game would be.” Pregame traffic “was staggered and thus never an issue.” Postgame traffic “was snarled, as expected, because there weren’t postgame events on campus late at night to keep everyone from leaving at the same time” (SOUTH BEND TRIBUNE, 10/27).
