The schools announced Thursday that the Crimson Tide will open the 2028 season in South Bend, Indiana, vs. the Fighting Irish on September 2, and the two traditional powers will reunite the following year in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, on September 1, 2029. The agreement has Alabama traveling to South Bend, 2028, and the return game with the Irish coming to Bryant-Denny Stadium in 2029.

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 then face Duke in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game in 2019 and Miami (Fla.) in the 2021 game in Atlanta. The Irish will visit the Crimson Tide on September 1, 2029.

The University of Notre Dame and University of Alabama, featuring two of the most storied traditions in college football, have agreed to a two-year, home-and-home football series beginning in 2028.

The most recent bowl meeting was January 7, 2013, when No. 2 Alabama crushed No. 1 and 12-0 Notre Dame 42-14 in the BCS Championship held in Miami. Tidesports was the first to report Alabama was in talks for the games in March. They had home-and-home series in 1976 and 1980 and again in the mid-1980s. The Crimson Tide have the most national championships in the poll era with 12 since 1936, followed by the Irish in second with eight.

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 next home-and-home occurred in 1986-87, Lou Holtz's first two seasons at Notre Dame when it was in a rebuilding mode.
