The rock band Chicago and University of Notre Dame Marching Band joined forces at halftime during the Oct. 21, 2017 game against historic rival USC. Chicago had been in residence in the Ricci Band Rehearsal Hall throughout the week leading up to the game, preparing for an album and documentary special. The band's manager, Peter Schivarelli, has cloes ties to the ND Band, as the University as a whole (having played on Ara Parseghian's 1971 Cotton Bowl Championship team).
At halftime, the band performed two of Chicago's greatest hits, Saturday in the Park and 25 or 6 to 4.
