SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) -- Notre Dame is getting rid of its games against Michigan and adding a pair against Ohio State.
Notre Dame and Ohio State announced Thursday they will play a home-and-home series starting in Columbus, Ohio, on Sept. 3, 2022. The Buckeyes will travel to South Bend to face the Irish on Sept. 23, 2023. It will be the first time the teams have met since the Buckeyes beat the Irish 34-20 in the Fiesta Bowl at the end of the 2005 season.
The teams met in back-to-back seasons in 1995 and 1996, with Ohio State winning both games. Ohio State coach Urban Meyer was an assistant coach to Notre Dame coach Lou Holtz in the 1996 game. The only other meetings came in 1935 and 1936, with the Irish winning both.
