WEST POINT – Army will resume its 100-year-old rivalry with Notre Dame with a Nov. 12, 2016 game against the Fighting Irish at the Alamodome in San Antonio. Kickoff will be at 7:30 p.m.; the game will be carried live nationally by NBC.
“We are excited to take our football team to the great city of San Antonio,” said Army Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Boo Corrigan. “San Antonio has a large military presence and it will be great to showcase our cadet-athletes.”
Army will be Notre Dame’s opponent as part of the Irish’s Shamrock Series.
Army has played at the Alamodome once, in 2006, when the Black Knights lost to Texas A & M 28-24 in the AT&T Corps Classic.
Army and Notre Dame first played in 1913; their last game was a 27-3 Irish victory in 2010 at Yankee Stadium. The Black Knights have played Notre Dame 50 times. Notre Dame has a 34-8-4 advantage in the historic series. Army last beat Notre Dame 14-2, in 1958.
“It’s great to have Notre Dame back on our schedule,” said Corrigan. “Army has a tremendous history with Notre Dame and it’s wonderful to see this college football matchup back on. Every time we have played in Texas, we have received tremendous support and this is another opportunity to play in front of our fans who may not be able to make it to Michie Stadium. Texas remains vital to our recruiting interests and it’s important that we continue to compete in that great state.”
