And-home series set with Notre Dame in 2028-29

Notre Dame Football Spring Game 2018

It was announced on Thursday that Notre Dame and Alabama have officially set a deal to collide for a home-and-home series against each other in the 2028-2029 seasons.

It's just going to be a little while.

Alabama head coach Nick Saban will be 76-years old and would have coached at the school for more than two decades by the time the first game is played in 2028.

The first game in the series will take place in South Bend, on September 2, 2028, with Notre Dame traveling to Tuscaloosa the following season on September 1.

Notre Dame football will finally receive its opportunity for revenge against Alabama.

Alabama has played at Notre Dame twice.

"This series speaks to Notre Dame's commitment to play against the best that college football has to offer", said Notre Dame vice president and James E. Rohr director of athletics Jack Swarbrick.

The Crimson Tide and Fighting Irish have met seven times, including Alabama's 42-14 win in the BCS championship game to end the 2012 season.

Despite the loss to the Crimson Tide for the 2012 national title, Notre Dame is 5-2 all-time against Alabama. The Crimson Tide will make their third trip to Notre Dame Stadium (1976 and 1987).

No. 2 Alabama ended its 0-4 frustration against the 1-2 Irish with a 28-10 victory in Birmingham on October 4, 1986.

He added, "What a great opportunity this is for our program and for our fans to kick off the 2028 and 2029 seasons".

Notre Dame and Alabama played for the national championship in the 1973 Sugar Bowl.
