Notre Dame to play Syracuse at Yankee Stadium in 2018

Notre Dame to play Syracuse at Yankee Stadium in 2018

Notre Dame released game times for the 2018 home schedule. The Michigan game will be the first of the season.

Additionally, Michigan is eligible to host one night game in 2018, after hosting two in 2017 (Michigan State, Minnesota), and will be exposed to the possibility of playing additional night games on the road. This will be Notre Dame's 27th game at either the original or new Yankee Stadium. After a home game against Florida State on November 10, Notre Dame goes to NY to play Syracuse and visits USC on November 24. The Irish beat Army 27-3 in 2010 in the first football game played at the stadium and defeated Rutgers 29-16 in the 2013 Pinstripe Bowl.

"To play a fantastic opponent like Notre Dame in that building, closer to home, I think is exciting for our fans", head coach Dino Babers said in a statement.

SU's last two games against the Irish have also been off-campus, losing to the Irish at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, in 2014 and 2016.

That's when Florida State will be taking on Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana. The Ball State game on September 8th will kickoff at 3:30pm while the Vanderbilt game on September 15th will kickoff at 2:30pm.

The 2018 schedule also includes non-conference games against Western Michigan, Wagner and CT, with the league schedule set to be released next year.
