From the Associated Press, looks like Notre Dame will be playing a to-be-named opponent at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando in 2011 and 2014. AD Kevin said this was another step in getting back to Notre Dame’s independent roots. It’s safe to say that the Irish football team won’t be joining your Big Ten anytime soon and that’s fine.
My question: will the Irish play 8 home games and 1 ‘neutral’ game in these years? Leaving just 3 games on an opponent’s home field? Or does the neutral site game take away from one of the home games?
