Miami, Notre Dame set four matchups between 2016-25
Miami and Notre Dame will resume their storied rivalry for four matchups over the span of a decade.
The Hurricanes and Fighting Irish will play four times between 2016 and 2025, as announced by the Atlantic Coast Conference and Notre Dame Tuesday afternoon.
Miami will visit South Bend, Indiana on Oct. 29, 2016, before hosting Notre Dame on Nov. 11, 2017, for the first time since 1989. The Hurricanes will travel to Notre Dame again in 2024 and welcome the Fighting Irish in 2025.
The programs last met in 2012 at Soldier Field for a neutral-site game that the Fighting Irish won 41-3. In 2010, Notre Dame beat Miami 33-17 in the Hyundai Sun Bowl in El Paso, Texas. Prior to the bowl game, the programs hadn't faced off since 1990 when the Fighting Irish won 29-20 at home.
Notre Dame leads the all-time series 16-7-1. During the 1980s, it provided plenty of drama with the Catholics vs. Convicts storyline as well as national-title implications. Both teams were ranked in the top 10 when they met in 1987-1990. From 1987-89 the winner went on to capture the national championship.
This news formally seals the partnership that began this season between Notre Dame and the ACC, which features an average of five games per year between ACC teams and the Fighting Irish over a 12-year span.
Last week, the Hurricanes announced it will play LSU on Sept. 1, 2018, in the AdvoCare Cowboys Classic at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
