The Alabama football program has scheduled a marquee home-and-home series for the future, with the Crimson Tide set to face off against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. The first meeting will take place on Sept. 2, 2028 in South Bend, before invading Tuscaloosa’s Bryant-Denny Stadium on Sept. 1, 2029.
“It doesn’t get more tradition-rich than Alabama and Notre Dame when it comes to college football,” Alabama Director of Athletics Greg Byrne said in a statement. “What a great opportunity this is for our program and for our fans to kick off the 2028 and 2029 seasons.”
The meeting in 2028 will be the eighth meeting between the Crimson Tide and Fighting Irish and the first time they’ve met on the gridiron since the BCS National Championship Game in 2012.
“We are excited to be able to add a home-and-home series with a team like Notre Dame,” Alabama head coach Nick Saban said. “Alabama and Notre Dame represent two of the most storied programs in college football history. What a great opportunity for our team and our fans to be able to witness these teams play in two of the sport’s most iconic venues in Tuscaloosa and South Bend.”
Notre Dame holds a 5-2 edge in the series against Alabama.
