It slowly builds into a thumping crescendo, and then the notes seemingly turn into body punch after body punch, jabbing at an opponent's psyche.
This week sound waves of Florida State's fabled war chant cascaded down on the University of Notre Dame football practice field and across campus as the No. 5-ranked Fighting Irish (6-0) prepared for their game against the No. 2 Seminoles (6-0).
Doak Campbell Stadium, Florida State's home field, will be rocking to the war chant on Saturday night when a new chapter in the rivalry between the Irish and the defending national champion Seminoles is written.
Notre Dame's job is to make sure the Irish lock into the game and deal with the challenge poised by 82,300 garnet-and-gold noisy fans.
