This season, Navy and Notre Dame traveled to Dublin, Ireland to play its rivalry game. In 2014, the pilgrimage will not be as far for the two schools.
NavySports.com announced on Thursday the 2014 Navy and Notre Dame game will be played at FedExField in Landover, Md.—better known as the home of the NFL’s Washington Redskins.
“The Navy and Notre Dame game highlights two outstanding collegiate programs,” Redskins Chief Marketing Officer Mitch Gershman told NavySports.com. “We are excited to welcome both teams back to FedExField and are looking forward to hosting one of the most competitive and nationally acclaimed matchups in the country.”
The game is scheduled for Nov. 1, and will be the first meeting at FedExField between the two schools since 1998. However, Navy last played in Landover in 2011, when it beat Army 27-21.
