On Tuesday afternoon the Atlantic Coast Conference announced that the University of Louisville’s football series with the Notre Dame Fighting Irish had been extended with three more meetings between the two programs.
Below is the official release from UofL.
LOUISVILLE, Ky.- The Atlantic Coast Conference announced three additional football meetings between the University of Louisville and Notre Dame on Tuesday afternoon.
The Cardinals and Fighting Irish are scheduled to meet for the first time on Nov. 22, 2014, when the Cardinals travel to South Bend, Ind.
The league also announced that Louisville will host Notre Dame on Sept. 2, 2019, at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium and the two schools will play at Notre Dame in 2020 and at Louisville in 2023. The dates will be announced at a later date.
The games are part of an agreement between the ACC and Notre Dame to play five ACC teams each year in football.
Notre Dame Football may not be quite as relevant as they once were, but they’re certainly not a slouch. Getting the chance it play in South Bend later this season will be a great opportunity for the program. Hosting the Irish in 2019 could set up to be one of the bigger home games in the history of the program.
