SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- The Notre Dame football team's home-game sellout streak went down to the wire this week, but a late rally on Friday afternoon kept the streak alive.

Tickets for Saturday's game between the Irish (3-1) and Washington (2-2) at Notre Dame Stadium (2:30 p.m. CT) are sold out.

The University of Washington returned an additional portion of its ticket allotment on Friday, putting the streak in jeopardy.

Notre Dame has a streak of 208 consecutive football sellouts, dating to a Thanksgiving Day game against Air Force in 1973.

A limited quantity of tickets remain available for the Nov. 21 game against the University of Connecticut as a result of its allotment returns.
