Purdue, Notre Dame Slated To Meet At Lucas Oil Stadium

Last updated on Friday, December 20, 2013

(UNDATED) - Purdue and Notre Dame will play in Indianapolis before their annual football rivalry goes on hiatus for six years.

The September 13, 2014 game between the Irish and the Boilermakers will be at Lucas Oil Stadium, however it will still be a home game for Notre Dame.

Purdue will have access to around 10,000 seats, twice the normal visiting-school allotment, on the Boilermakers' side of the field.

Notre Dame and Purdue have played in Indy before. The teams dedicated the old Hoosier Dome on September 8, 1984, when the Boilermakers upset the then-number eight Irish 23-to-21.

The teams have met annually since 1946, but next year's game will be their last until 2020, when they meet at Purdue. Notre Dame gave up the game as part of their agreement to play five ACC teams per year starting next season.

Notre Dame began competing in the ACC in all other sports this school year, while it's football team remains an independent.

In addition to the 2020 game, a deal announced today has the teams playing at Notre Dame in 2021, at Purdue in 2024, Notre Dame again in 2025 and at a neutral site in 2026.

The game will be televised by NBC, which has the rights to all Notre Dame home games.
