Notre Dame Men's Swimming and Diving | Jan. 11, 2014 | Notre Dame Athletics
EVANSTON, Ill. - The University of Notre Dame men's swimming and diving team went down to the wire with Northwestern Saturday, and a pair of top three 400 freestyle relay finishes for the host Wildcats in the final event of the day yielded a rare 150-150 tie between the teams at the Norris Aquatic Center. No. 1 Michigan defeated Northwestern 177-115, but the Wolverines and Irish did not score against one another in the meet after competing against each other on two previous occasions during the season's opening weekend.
The tie for No. 20 Notre Dame (4-4-1) was just the second in its 56-year program history, and the first since the inaugural Irish dual meet on Dec. 6, 1958 at Chicago (43-43). Notre Dame had competed in 664 dual meets since its first tie before squaring with the Wildcats on Saturday.
