COLUMBUS, NC (FOX Carolina) -

One western North Carolina couple is planning their wedding after a surprise marriage proposal in front of thousands of Notre Dame fans.  

Brad Hicks and his girlfriend Briana Cunningham are huge Notre Dame fans.  Cunningham and her family make it to a game at least once every season.

Hicks wanted to make this season special by asking for Cunningham's hand in marriage.

They both grew up near Columbus, NC, and they've known each other since the fifth grade.

Two years ago they finally connected, which got them all the way to the wedding proposal Cunningham always dreamed of. 

"We actually got on the field and she was so excited. You can see in the video that she is crying a little bit. She had no idea I was going to propose... she's definitely my dream girl, so I'm happy to have her,"said Hicks.

Hicks said the crowd was so loud and that Cunningham was so excited to be on the field he had to call her name twice. Finally, on the third time, it all clicked and Cunningham said yes.
