LOS ANGELES — The Notre Dame-Southern California rivalry has been extended another decade.

The Irish and archrival Trojans will continue their annual meetings through 2023, according to a news release on the USC website.

“Not only are we pleased to be able to extend our storied series with Notre Dame, but we were able to keep the game on the traditional dates of Thanksgiving weekend in Los Angeles and mid-October in South Bend,” USC athletic director Pat Haden told the site.

USC will visit Notre Dame on Oct. 19 this year.

The Irish-Trojan rivalry dates back to 1926. Since then, the teams have met 84 times, with Notre Dame leading the series 44-35-5. The Irish won at USC last year, 22-13.
