FedExField, the home of the NFL's Washington Redskins, will be the site of the 2014 Navy-Notre Dame football game, the team and the Naval Academy jointly announced.
This meeting, scheduled for Nov. 1, will be the first between the schools at FedExField since 1998. Navy last played at the venue on Dec. 10, 2011, when the Mids defeated Army for a 10th-straight time. The Fighting Irish's last appearance there was Nov. 12, 2011, against Maryland.
"The Navy and Notre Dame game highlights two outstanding collegiate programs," Redskins Chief Marketing Officer Mitch Gershman told reporters. "We are excited to welcome both teams back to FedExField and are looking forward to hosting one of the most competitive and nationally acclaimed matchups in the country."
