*2007 Sugar Bowl vs. LSU 44-14
In Brady Quinn's final game at Notre Dame, the Fighting Irish ran into a buzz saw of a football team. The Tigers showed what an elite defense looks like and proved Notre Dame didn't have one.
*2006 Fiesta Bowl vs. Ohio State 34-20 L
In Weis' first bowl game the Irish hung around with the Buckeyes before surrendering one too many big plays on defense.
*2007 vs. USC 38-0 L
1977 throwback uniforms couldn't help the cause as the Irish lied down like lambs and were slaughtered at home. Trojan quarterback Mark Sanchez threw four touchdown passes and ND only amassed 165 yards on offense.
2007 vs. Michigan 38-0 L
Another debacle from early in '07 that really let fans know the season would not be a good one. The Wolverines coasted after being up 31-0 at halftime and Notre Dame only totaled a laughable 79 yards of offense.
2005 vs. USC 34-31 L
Probably the toughest big game loss in recent Notre Dame history, the famous "Bush Push" game will live on as one of the greatest games in college football history. This was probably one of the top three all-around team performances by a Weis-led team in a big game.
