THE PEOPLE toting babies, in line waiting for their first picture with Santa Claus, couldn't believe it. They refused to believe it.

Then there was the time at Disney World, when curious strangers would approach the...

SOUTH BEND, Ind. - Tommy Rees threw four TD passes in the first half, Notre Dame built a big early lead, and the Irish rolled to their fourth straight victory Saturday, routing Air Force, 59-33. It marked the most combined points ever for a game at Notre Dame Stadium. And the 59 points were the most by Notre Dame since beating Rutgers, 62-0, in 1996 in Lou Holtz's final home game as Irish coach. The two teams combined for 1,125 yards of total offense - 565 by Air Force and 560 by Notre Dame.

NOTRE DAME yesterday announced a $400 million plan to expand its 84-year-old football stadium, adding thousands of premium seats plus new buildings at the "House that Rockne Built. " The new buildings will house a student center on the west side, the anthropology and psychology departments and a digital media center on the east side and music and sacred music departments on the south side, leaving the side facing Touchdown Jesus unchanged. The Rev. John Jenkins, the university president, called it "the most ambitious building project in the 172-year history of Notre Dame," saying more space was needed to accommodate the university's broadening research activity.

TWENTY-FOUR YEARS later, it still seems so unlikely. The walk-on placekicker from Kaneohe, Hawaii, standing a mere 5-5 and 135 pounds, with a style as unorthodox as they come, emerging as the hero in a game that jump-started Notre Dame's last national championship season. That remarkable Sept. 10, 1988, night at Notre Dame Stadium has since been deemed "The Reggie Ho Game," a triumph etched in Irish lore. That night, starting his first collegiate game, in front of a national audience, Reggie Ho nailed each of his four field-goal attempts, including a game-winning, 26-yarder with 73 seconds left, to help 13th-ranked Notre Dame knock off No. 9 Michigan, 19-17.

There is something unique about watching a football game at Notre Dame Stadium, home to legends such as Knute Rockne, the Four Horseman and Joe Montana. So when it came time for expansion plans, university officials decided it was more important to maintain that sense of history and tradition than have a huge stadium, even if it meant still not having enough tickets to satisfy the demand. The $50 million expansion will add 21,195 seats, bringing capacity to 80,990, according to plans and drawings unveiled yesterday.

Last week's arrest of two star Notre Dame players has overshadowed the seventh-ranked Fighting Irish's first meeting on the football field in 33 years with downstate rival Indiana. Now the real fun begins. Notre Dame coach Lou Holtz has made an art form of turning adversity to his own advantage, and his circle-the-wagons approach to the events of last Friday evening, when quarterback Rick Mirer and linebacker Demetrius DuBose were arrested for drunken and disorderly behavior at an off-campus party, offers college football's most famous amateur magician an unexpected opportunity to levitate his team going into its season opener (Channel 3, 1:30 p.m.)
