SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - The Purdue-Notre Dame football rivalry is coming to an end.
Purdue said Thursday that the two schools will meet in Indianapolis next season as part of the Shamrock Series home games the Fighting Irish play every season away from South Bend - and then the two teams will not play again until 2020. The night game will be played Sept. 13 at Lucas Oil Stadium, home of the Indianapolis Colts.
Purdue and Notre Dame, with campuses 110 miles apart, have played every year since 1946 and 85 times overall. Notre Dame has been ending some rivalry games because it agreed to play five games a season against Atlantic Coast Conference opponents when it joined the conference in most other sports.
