Remembering Knute Rockne and His Connections to Kansas

Knute Rockne, Notre Dame's legendary football coach, died in a plane crash in the Kansas Flint Hills on March 31, 1931.

This year marks the 85th anniversary of a plane crash in the Kansas Flint Hills that claimed the lives of eight men, including Knute Rockne, Notre Dame's legendary football coach.
