In this photo taken Oct. 27, 1956 and provided by the University of Oklahoma Athletics Communications, Oklahoma running back Clendon Thomas runs the ball as Notre Dame's Paul Hornung chases during an NCAA college football game in South Bend, Ind. Oklahoma won 40-0. Notre Dame has had some great victories in its 125 years of playing college football, yet none was as improbable as the 7-0 victory at second-ranked Oklahoma in 1957. That victory ended the Sooners' NCAA-record winning streak at 47 games and came just a season after the Sooners beat the Irish 40-0 in South Bend, still the most lopsided home loss in Notre Dame history.
