USC Trojans, Notre Dame Fighting Irish Extend Football Series to 2023

One of the biggest rivalries in college football during Thanksgiving weekend will continue on for at least the next decade.

Both the USC Trojans and Notre Dame Fighting Irish have agreed to extend the rivalry game through 2023 and it will remain on the college football calendar during Thanksgiving weekend.

 “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,” said USC athletic director Pat Haden from the Sports Xchange. “Adding the series with BYU, which is a great matchup for the fans of both teams and for all college football fans, helped us in that regard.”

The series resumes at South Bend this season and will continue to alternate venues there and at USC’s home, the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

This year’s edition of the rivalry will be played on Saturday, November 30th, with a time to be announced later. It will be televised by the FOX Sports Media Group with a broadcast on either FOX or the soon-to-be-launched FOX Sports 1.
