LOOK: Widow of Ara Parseghian presents national colors at Notre Dame Stadium

The national anthem was an emotional moment for Notre Dame fans Saturday but not because anyone was kneeling.

The Fighting Irish football program had the widow of former coach Ara Parseghian on the field to present the colors Saturday.

Paraseghian coached Notre Dame from 1964-74 and led them to a 95-17-4 record. The Fighting Irish won at least nine games (back when in some years, there were only 10 contests) under Parseghian five times, and nine of his 11 teams finished in the top 10. The program never finished lower than 15th in his 11 years as coach.

Under the late coach, the Irish also won the national championship in 1966 and 1971.
