Bicentennial Minute – Knute Rockne

Knute Rockne coached the Notre Dame Fighting Irish football team to record success during his tenure. He’s the subject of this week’s Bicentennial Minute.

The football field at Conway High School in South Carolina is flooded by rain from Hurricane Matthew, Saturday, Oct. 8, 2016, in Conway, S.C. Hurricane Matthew's estimated losses are a fraction of those racked up by Superstorm Sandy, which barreled into the Northeast in 2012, and Hurricane Katrina, which swept through Louisiana and nearby states in 2005.

Matthew downgraded to post-tropical cyclone

As Matthew made its slow exit off the East Coast, dozens of people — including a woman and her small child — had to be rescued from their cars as life-threatening flash floods surprised many in North Carolina.
