College football scheduling is the absolute best thing

It’s been 30 years since Indiana and Notre Dame last met on the football field.

It’ll only be nine more years before the Hoosiers and Irish meet again.

In a joint announcement Monday, the two schools revealed plans to play a home-and-home series to kick off the 2030s. IU will travel to Notre Dame Stadium for a game on Aug. 31, 2030 before hosting the Irish at Memorial Stadium on Sept. 27, 2031.

“I’m looking forward to facing one of the most storied programs in the history of college football,” IU coach Tom Allen said in a statement. “It’s tremendous for the state of Indiana and for our fans, and it will be a great opportunity for our players.”

The two programs haven’t seen one another since a 49-27 Notre Dame win in South Bend on Sept. 7, 1991. They’ve played 29 all-time games, with the Hoosiers’ last victory coming in 1950. IU’s other four victories in the series all came between 1898 and 1906.
