Unranked heading into the season, Notre Dame returned to college football's epicenter in 2012—finishing a perfect 12-0, ascending to No. 1 in the national rankings, and advancing to face Alabama in the BCS National Championship Game. Awakening takes readers through every compelling moment—from the season-opening win over Navy in Dublin, Ireland, to defeat by the Crimson Tide in Miami. This unforgettable season is captured through stories and photos from staff of the award-winning South Bend Tribune. This collector's edition takes you on a journey through coach Brian Kelly's coaching evolution, quarterback Everett Golson's rise, tight end Tyler Eifert's late-season surge and the tragedy and triumphs of Heisman Trophy runner-up Manti Te'o. Vivid photography helps tell the story every step along the way.
