Notre Dame Football: Notre Dame and Army Won’t Play In 2013


Despite what you have heard about a possible Notre Dame-Army game (which you probably heard here), its looking like that may not happen.

Notre Dame spokesman John Heisler told ESPN’s Matt Fortuna that the schools’ will not face each other at Yankee Stadium, if at all, during the 2013 season.

I am a little disappointed in this news. Notre Dame makes one of the most challenging schedules year after year, so playing a somewhat weaker opponent would be nice. It gets kind of annoying going into every game not knowing for sure how the game will turn out. I’m not saying Army is a bad team, I’m just saying they’re not a major conference team. Not to mention that they have been lacking in wins over the recent years.

Will Notre Dame Play Army In The Future?

The odds of these teams seeing each other within the next 5 years is very high. Army’s Athletic Director, Boo Corrigan, graduated from Notre Dame in 1990 and had worked in the Notre Dame Athletic Department for 5 years. So I can definitely see him pushing for a game to happen.

What do you think of this news? Do you want the Fighting Irish to play Army in the near future?
