The SportsXchange

Notre Dame and Southern Cal have reached an agreement to make sure one of college football's most storied rivalries will continue into the next decade.

The two schools agreed to extend their series through the 2023 season, they announced on Wednesday.

The Trojans also are adding a three-game series with BYU beginning later this decade.

USC will continue to host the Fighting Irish on Thanksgiving weekend in even-numbered years and play at South Bend in mid-October in odd-numbered years through 2023.

The two teams started playing in 1926 and have played in each season except three (1943-1945). The Irish hold the edge with a 44-35-5 mark.

The Trojans will head to Provo to play BYU in September 2019, then host the Cougars on Thanksgiving weekend in both 2021 and 2023.

"Not only are we pleased to be able to extend our storied series with Notre Dame, but we were able to keep the game on the traditional dates of Thanksgiving weekend in Los Angeles and mid-October in South Bend," said USC athletic director Pat Haden. "Adding the series with BYU, which is a great matchup for the fans of both teams and for all college football fans, helped us in that regard."
