SALT LAKE CITY, Utah –  BYU Athletics announced kickoff details for the Cougars’ football game against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

BYU is slated to play Notre Dame at Allegiant Stadium, home of the NFL’s Las Vegas Raiders, on October 8.

The game was announced in September 2021.

On Saturday, April 23, the Cougars shared more details about the contest.

The Shamrock Series game will kickoff at 5:30 p.m. (MDT) and will be broadcast on KSL TV.

BYU opened its 2021 season at Allegiant Stadium with a win over Arizona.

The Cougars kick off their 2022 schedule on the road against the USF Bulls on September 2.

BYU & Notre Dame

BYU and Notre Dame scheduled a six-game agreement in 2010. At the time of the announcement 11 years ago, both faith-based, Independent programs were set to play all six games before the 2020 season.

After 11 years, only two games have been played, with three of the contests being canceled. Leaving BYU waiting for one home game against Notre Dame after the first two games were played in South Bend.

When BYU and Notre Dame first agreed on their six-game series, the Irish didn’t have a scheduling agreement with the ACC. Since partnering up with the ACC for five games annually each year, the Irish have not created openings to schedule BYU.

For a while, there was doubt about whether BYU had a remaining contract with Notre Dame or if the Cougars were going to get a payday from the Irish. The past few years have sparked optimism that another game will be played.

BYU and Notre Dame have played eight games against one another. The Irish lead the all-time series, 6-2. BYU’s victories came in 1994 and 2004.
