SOUTH BEND – Notre Dame and Alabama are set to get together on the football field.
The pair of tradition-rich programs will visit one another for nonconference games in 2028 and 2029.
The schools announced plans for the home-and-home series on their social media accounts Thursday afternoon. Notre Dame will host the Crimson Tide on Sept. 2, 2028. Alabama will return the favor a year later on Sept. 1.
The schools last met in the BCS National Championship Game at the conclusion of the 2012 season. Alabama won in a landslide by a 42-14 final.
The Fighting Irish lead the series between the two programs 5-2, with their most notable victory over the Crimson Tide coming in the 1973 Sugar Bowl, a game coached by Hall of Famers Bear Bryant of Alabama and Ara Parseghian of Notre Dame.
