Notre Dame and Boston College are slated to play a football game at Fenway Park in 2015, according to a Dec. 20 Sports Illustrated Wire report.

Boston mayor Thomas M. Menino is excited about this development. “The City of Boston will be ready to welcome Fighting Irish and Eagles fans alike when Fenway brings this historic rivalry to one of our most beloved landmarks in 2015,” he said. “I’m looking forward to a memorable weekend that puts Boston, and all the great things our city has to offer, in the national spotlight.”

The Associated Press reports that athletic director Jack Swarbrick released schedules for the next three seasons on Friday, and announced that the goal was coast to coast games, consistent with Jesse Harper’s 1913 model.

“We play coast to coast. Jesse Harper made that decision a hundred years ago. It changed the trajectory of the football program and the university, and we're not going to stray from it,” Swarbrick said.

The Fighting Irish are not leaving anything to chance. Notre Dame already has measured the field at Fenway to make sure everything goes as planned. “We spent a lot of time mapping it, staking it,” Swarbrick said. “The Yankees will tell you when we went there the first time, we drove them crazy. We had to outline the entire field. We had to walk in and see it.”

The game is scheduled for Nov. 21, 2015.
