So many to pick from and its hard for me to narrow down...but after some time to cool off from the Natty things are coming into perspective.
My favortie moment was the ending of the Pitt game:
I had been working 12hours shifts after SuperStorm Sandy. I caught most of the game on the radio while I was working, and was thoroughly frustrated by the time I got home to catch the 4th quarter.
"The Pitt game was not supposes to be like this!!" was all I kept thinking to myself. This was a team we should've dispatched early...but Pitt had other plans, and they gave us their best shot!
So, OT comes. We all know the story. Pitt lines up for the "winning Field goal". I couldn't bear to watch. I stepped out of the room, looked up at the sky and "said, oh well. We'll get'em next time Dad." and I felt this pit in my gut because I had this thought in the back of my mind that my father recently deceased father was somehow behind this magical season (I never claimed to be a sane person).
Then I heard my wife yell for me to come back, and when I got into the room I saw the replay of the field goal going wide right and I fell to my knees and actually let out a few tears....I knew at that second that my old man pushed that baby wide....and no one on this planet could ever convince me otherwise...
So that's my little highlight....who's up next?
LET'S GET IT ON!!!!!
Mine would be the end of the Stanford game because i was there. Sitting and waiting for the review of the final play and then hearing it upheld the excitement in the stadium was awesome! Then walking out after the game in the pouring rain, and i mean pouring, and nobody caring because we were all so excited.

My favorite moment was sitting in the 5th row on the field with my father. Finally seeing a game at ND was awesome. Not to mention it happened to be the Wake game. The crowd noise when Manti came out for senior day was one I will never forget!!
Since we were there, it has to be the Stanford goaline stand in OT. Rushing the field at ND Stadium for the first time as a family was unreal. The rainstorm and 4Q comeback just added to the moment.
2nd best would be the blowout win @Oklahoma that really legitimized BK's program nationally.

My luck w/the Irish 20-6...GO IRISH!!!
the michigan game being there and the electric in that stadium was amazing the way it ended when Tommy made that pass to Eifert will always stick out in my mind some many to pick from tho amazing year is it august yet?
The 5 straight passes that ND picked off of Denard Robinson. I still cannot believe that we only won that game by 7 points... it felt so onesided all night long.

The goal line stand in the 4th quarter of the USC game. The look on Lame Kiffen's face that was priceless.
1) Any one of Theo's Riddicks embarass the defender moves at USC
2) KLM's exit from the WFU game (and Motta and Teo too)
Beating USC because I hate them.
Since we were 12-0 I could pick a dozen different moments, but being in Norman for a 30-13 Irish victory was by far the highlight of the season for me. Not only was it fantastic to see a win, but I sat next to Bob Diaco's brother and Kerry Cook's brother (great people), and got my picture taken with Mike Golic.

Finally beating Michigan. I was at the game in 2010 when DRob played us like a video game and the 2011 game may have done the most physical and mental damage to me of any other ND game. To finally beat them after so many close losses..........I needed that one.
I kept watching the replay game of 2011, hoping our DB's would turn around an catch the dam ball. Unlucky for me still the same results.
Oddly, Tommy Rees drive to beat Purdue. It wasn't spectacular but, to me, that just showed me that the character of the team was different. If there was one play, it was the 3rd down pass to Goodman that got that first, key first down. After that I knew we would kick the FG and win. That was a game that previously ND would have found a way to lose.
This ^^^^^. When Tyler caught that ball I knew the game was ours! After outplaying Michigan so many times only to find a way to lose, this one was special.

i agree the kid was getting bood came in and let us down for the W i was down to this or michigan on that drive Goodman made amazing catch to keep it going!
The Pitt game. I have never been so nervous or tense during a game before. Our perfect season looked to be gone and we stole it. The goalline fumble, the missed FG, the win, it was breathtaking.
Although the Wake game was special for other reasons. The senior day, the introduction of Manti, the shutout. It was beautiful.

When Manti intercepted that pass late in the OU game that led to our last FG. At that point I just could smell 12-0
Irish Oak in Chicago
My favorite was after we beat usc and Manti and BK were hugging in the tunnel of the collliseum...and laughing....12-0!!!
And I bet my Dad was the first guy to buy your Dad a drink after he pushed that baby wide right against Pitt!

I was coming back from Wyoming with my trusted pack mules in tow. The deer season was short and sweet and we were on our way back to ca on sunday eve after packing out Sunday morning. My wife who is also an ND fan stopped watching the Stanford game at half, thinking the Irish lost. So on Sunday she called me thinking she was going to leave a message. When she called I answered the phone. She thought she was leaving me a message as I was suppose to in the back country for 7 days. she was giving me the bad news while she was watching the scores on ESPN. So she's leaving me this message then starts screaming they won they won oh my God they won. I'm like "who won, its Sunday". Are you on the phone? Yes. The Irish won they won. What a sweet drive home. A great moment among many others.
