Notre Dame and Wisconsin to renew rivalry in series

Notre Dame and Wisconsin to renew rivalry in series

A press conference on Monday, August 14, has been announced by officials from Wisconsin and Notre Dame.

The Wisconsin Badgers and Notre Dame Fighting Irish have come to agreements on a future two-game series between the two, to be played on neutral sites. An announcement is expected to be made setting up non-conference matchups between these two premier football programs at Soldier Field and Lambeau Field.

The teams have not met since 1964, even though longtime Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez has Notre Dame ties, having been an assistant coach under Lou Holtz from 1987 to '89.

Notre Dame last played at Soldier Field in 2012, defeating Miami in a Shamrock Series game during ND's undefeated regular season.

The teams will reportedly meet in Lambeau Field (Green Bay) in 2020 and Solider Field (Chicago) in 2021, according to the Chicago Tribune. The Irish hold an 8-6-2 edge in the all-time series. Notre Dame won that game 31-7 in Madison. The Irish are set to play at least one Big Ten team for the next 11 seasons.
