Northwestern announced today that it will renew its rivalry with Notre Dame in a home-and-home series beginning in 2014.
The announcement was officially made on ESPN's "Mike & Mike in the Morning" radio show. The show's co-hosts are Mike Greenberg, a Northwestern alum, and former NFL player Mike Golic, a Notre Dame alum.
Northwestern will travel to South Bend on Nov. 15, 2014. Notre Dame will travel to Evanston to play the Wildcats sometime during the 2018 season.
The teams haven't played since 1995. The schools have played 47 times, but only four times since the 1976 season (1992-95).
" .... Northwestern and Notre Dame represent two of the finest academic institutions in the nation and it's only fitting that we renew our rivalry on the football field," Northwestern athletic director Jim Phillips said.
