Notre Dame and USC will continue their annual football series through the 2023 season. Southern Cal made the announcement regarding the intersectional series on Wednesday.
Notre Dame continue to host the Trojans in odd-numbered years in mid-October at Notre Dame Stadium, while Southern Cal will continue to host the Irish on Thanksgiving weekend in even-numbered years at the L.A. Coliseum.
"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," USC athletic director Pat Haden said in a university release.
Notre Dame's move to the ACC, which becomes official next week, in all sports but football and hockey has made scheduling future non-conference games more challenging. The Pac-12's scheduling format has been a challenge for USC as well due to the early December Pac-12 Championship Game.
"We want to have as many home games as possible each year for our fans and we also want to have a bye week every season, so some of our non-conference scheduling options now are more limited," Haden said.
Notre Dame's series with Michigan will soon come to an end, while future dates with Purdue and Michigan State, which have ran continuously since 1946 and 1997, respectively, will not continue annually due to Notre Dame's future ACC agreement. The intersectional series with USC has been uninterrupted since 1926.
