Ohio State and Notre Dame will play each other in a home-and-home series in 2022 and 2023, the schools announced Thursday morning. 

The Fighting Irish will travel to Columbus Sept. 3, 2022 before the Buckeyes head to South Bend Sept. 23, 2023.

“We are extremely pleased to have this series with Notre Dame scheduled,” Martin Jarmond, Ohio State executive associate athletic director, said in a released statement.

“Notre Dame adds to the prestigious series of non-conference games we have been seeking to schedule that are competitive, attractive for our fans and exciting for our student-athletes to be a part.”

Ohio State and Notre Dame have met five times previously: twice in the 1930s and twice in the mid-90s. The last time they played was in the in the 2006 Fiesta Bowl. The Buckeyes won, 34-20.

Combined, the schools have 1,725 wins, 18 claimed national championships, and 14 Heisman Trophy winners. 

Ohio State's future non-conference schedules include: Oklahoma (2016, 2017), TCU (2018, 2019), Oregon (2020, 2021), Notre Dame (2022, 2023), Texas (2022, 2023) and Boston College (2023, 2024). If the expected matchups hold, the Buckeyes will play the Fighting Irish, the Longhorns, and the Eagles in the first few weeks of the 2023 season.

i look at the glass being filled with a certain amount of water and this has nothing to do with it being "half full" or "half empty." it is simply a drinking glass that has water in it.

 I've always wondered if todays TV networks rig the sound to be louder or quieter depending on the stadium?

Ever notice how on some broadcasts from Ohio Stadium the announcers sound like they are shouting into the mic to be heard?  Meanwhile over on CBS there is huge SEC crowd noise, yet old Verne Lundquist can easily be heard above it despite a delivery fitting for announcing a golf match.  Uh-huh.

Ferio.  Tego.

Frimmel's picture

"Rig" is sort of a loaded word but since all of this stuff on broadcast has to come from stadium microphones and the announcers need to be prioritized it is to a certain extent "rigged" which is to say "mixed." I know it's loud in a stadium when it seems like the announcers are shouting but it seems like the crowd isn't making a lot of noise. I know it's crazy insane loud when the announcers are shouting yet they seem muddy/not crisp and I can still hear the crowd.

toledobuckeyefanjim's picture

I notice a lot of crowd noise on TV baseball games, but I also notice no one behind home plate or behind the dugouts are saying a word. So I think the TV networks pump in crowd noise to make it sound like the fans are cheering, etc.

'95 Notre Dame matchup was my very first, in-person, OSU Football game.  Student season tickets for around $100, no permanent South stands, a track around the field, and I wore my best onion on my belt... Before that, I was a casual OSU fan in a "yeah, I'm from Ohio, so go bucks, I guess." but I didn't have strong feelings either way.  Being from SW Ohio, Notre Dame had a lot of swing in the early 90s, so it was also a popular team.

Any ambivalent feelings I had about OSU football were completely obliterated that day.  I lived in Morrill tower with a view of the Shoe from my window.  I woke up that morning and was blown away by the party that had appeared overnight in front of my dorm.  I made my way to my seats in the top of the north C deck.  The only person who had a higher seat than me was the State Trooper standing watch by the flagpole (I really felt bad for him during the Iowa game that year.) From the minute that TBDBITL did their Ramp entrance, the stadium blew up.  I was cheering on the bucks with 95,537 of my closest friends.  It was a tough game, behind for most of the half and the 3rd quarter... This image is ingrained in my brain forever:

How could I NOT be a fan after that?  To this day, I love going to youtube, watching the replay and squealing with delight as Terry Glenn feasts on the saltiness of Regis Philben's tears.

jamesrbrown322's picture

Well, based upon the product coming out of Ann Arbor over the last decade,

That was my original statement. My statement related to how poor UM has been for the better part of a decade. A decade, might I add, during which Notre Dame was pretty piss poor too. Also, during that decade, OSU played for two national titiles, won 5 straight B1G titles (technically 6), 5 BCS bowl games, and finished in the top 10 of the AP Poll 8 times (2013-12th, 2004 - 20th). I agree that the rivalry is cyclical, generally. However, in case you were wondering, in the prior decade, 94-03, if I'm not mistaken, it was OSU 4, UM 6. So I repeat, what is the rivalry record over the last decade?

OSU 9, UM 1...with the lone UM win being a narrow escape in Ann Arbor against the worst team OSU had put on the field in nearly a quarter of a century...In other words, UM has beaten a RANKED Buckeyes squad once in the last 16 seasons!

P.S. - This is an OSU blog, so surprise, surprise, we're Buckeye fans, and can pick and choose whatever we want to make our Buckeyes look good. The fact of the matter remains that over the last 20 years Ohio State has produced more talent and been significantly more nationally relevant that UM, and I don't think that there's any way you can argue that.

Just because you can jump around and handpick and choose what info. you want to use for the sake of making your argument sound strong doesn't make it a good argument no matter how many paragraphs and capital letters you choose to use.

-4 HS
jamesrbrown322's picture

So 20 years worth of information is jumping around and handpicking information? Wow, UM fans clearly are delusional. Also, I must say that using only one paragraph, which is essentially a run-on sentence, makes your comeback very compelling. So basically, your reaction to hearing facts, and seeing them written out, that clearly demonstrate that for a decade solid, and now nearly two decades, UM has put an inferior product on the field, your reaction is this:

Also, my bad for typing one word in all caps for emphasis, and capitalizing appropriate abbreviations for names of universities. In Ohio, we actually teach English, reading, and writing, so I know that may have confused you a little bit. So how about this, *ICHIGAN IS 1-9 VS. OHIO STATE THE LAST DECADE, 7-13 THE LAST 20 YEARS, AND HAS PLAYED FOR, AND ONLY WON ONE (SHARED) NATIONAL TITLE IN THE LAST 65 YEARS.

Did that help?

Ok, and over the span of time since the college game was invented UM has been better than OSU, I dont know about you but having the most wins in the history of a sport is a bit bigger than just a segment of time in said sport. When UM fans bring that up we get hammered for being "history homers," but every year all I hear is what our record is against team a or team b in the last 10-20 years. That is blatant hypocrisy...

-3 HS
jamesrbrown322's picture

Do you know what hypocrisy means? Because that is not technically hypocrisy. I was talking about current events the entire time. And I agree, that over the course of history, UM is a very significant, relatively successful program. However, based on the better part of the last quarter century, I think you would agree that outside of the Desmond Howard and Charles Woodson teams, UM has been a pretty big disappointment, especially over the last decade.

Here's a list that I found to be quite fair, from a network that is by no means a B1G or Ohio State homer -

http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=3849468

Also, according to your argument, Yale is the second greatest football program of all time right? Your argument also means that Yale, Harvard, Penn and Princeton are all better overall programs than USC, UGA, LSU, Penn St., Auburn, Va. Tech, and A&M. Is that what you're saying?

How can you not love an announcement like this? IMO, scheduling future high-profile matchups like this can only help to improve even the current credibility/perception of the B1G. It will very interesting to witness how the new playoff system impacts how teams approach their SOS, especially with non-conference opponents.

Notre Dame was invited to join the B1G. They declined. They did not want to give up / or share that big tv contract. They know they have a better chance at a BCS bowl as an independent. The ACC was dumb enough to work a deal for limited participation in football and FULL participation in basketball. Notre Dame has been trying to join the elite in basketball and the ACC just gave them a huge recruiting tool. Notre Dame should not be able to have it both ways.Besides, ND football has not really been relevant in 20 years.

If the B1G was not good enough for Notre Dame, then screw the Irish! Who needs them? NO B1G should ever schedule Notre Dame in any sport.

Let them go play "catfish" by themselves.

I agree with most of what you said but it's hard to say they weren't relevant when they went to the NC game 2 years ago, which is 5 years after we were last there.

Grudgingly, I'll give them that.

They also lost a record 9 bowl games in a row between 1994/95 and 2006/07. Their 3 wins in bowls since then were against Hawaii, Miami ( FL ), and Rutgers in the Hawaii Bowl, Sun Bowl, and Pinstripe Bowl.

The schools should be playing at least once a decade. If only we could get the Irish to realize their home is the Big Ten from both an academic as well as athletic standpoint.

What is funny is that the M*ch*g*n idea is Notre Dame is chickening out from their series. In reality, ND wants a better challenge with a bigger National draw.  Over the last 15 years, Ohio State has been the class of the B1G. Over the next 15 years, Ohio State will remain the class of the B1G.

Maybe ND shouldn't have lost 7 of the last ten if they want to say they dropped TTUN over wanting to play "better" teams.

No. We've had our way with ND winning 4 of the last 5. Would of been 5 straight if we didn't have a turnover fest in 2012. It also does great in tv ratings. They're running away, but that's their business. What's funny is they are actually chickening out.

Sorry, but not playing Michigan is hardly chickening out.  Maybe avoiding them in 1911 back when you guys were beating up Michigan Agricultural College,  but not so much today...sorry.

Being from Cincinnati, I personally can't wait to watch the Buckeye lay the smack down on ND. I know it won't quite the majority of the loud mouth fans here in Cincinnati, but it will be nice to rub their stuck up noses in another ass whopping at the hands of The Ohio State.

I can't Stand ND and Personally make me SICK that we(tOSU fans) would be happy to help them fill their coffers even if tOSU beat the tar out of them for those 2 games.

Rather they Beg and Plead to play the Buckeyes and tOSU says "NO"..your not worthy

Go play in a Conference you big Wussies..

I dislike Tsun, MSU and Purdue but they are still BIG(family ,yea TSUN is that redheaded annoying sibling we love to hate) But ND is dirt to me, not worthy.

Can we schedule the U of SEC for once? I really don't want to see tOSU stomp a mudhole in ND again.

I agree. OSU cancels Tennessee and UGA, but picks up ND? I love seeing them beat the Irish, but until they buck up and play someone from the SEC, the perception will be that OSU is ducking them.

hit_the_couch's picture

I don't know who cancelled Tennessee, but the UGA series was void by both sides since no dates were ever agreed upon. They had to be agreed upon by June 30th of whatever year it was (2012?).  But SEC homers still think we are dodging them.

So since Gee's gone, those "damn Catholics" came to the negotiating table?

what a disappointment.

they need this game more than we do as they fade into irrelevancy.  i rather play a middle of the road SEC team.

the big ten needs to stop scheduling their program.

the only upside is we get to establish which program rules the midwest. but i suspect....every already knows it's NOT the irish.

Wow, I may be psychic.  I was watching the ND-Michigan game on BTN last week, and I thought, "I bet OSU and Notre Dame will schedule another game soon."  Little did I know that a week later, it would be a done deal.

I also dreamt last night that OSU will beat Virginia Tech.  Just sayin'...

There are a few teams I hate. Of course, one in particular comes to mind.

But after the obvious, the list is short. The only other team I hate in the Big Ten is Wisconsin, and that is a personal thing (basically, to use a flaccid (heh) metaphor, they stomped on my man parts too many times during the Cooper era, and I simply can't get over watching my 75 year-old Moms get beaned in the head with a ball of ice the last time we visited Camp Randall to support our team), so yeah, the Badgers are up there. The list rounds out with The U, because they deserve it.  The 2002-2003 Championship meant MUCH to this Hurricane Hater. 

HOWEVER, there is only one team in college football that I deliberately go out of my way to disrespect, and that is Notre Dame. I can make ya'll a list regarding why, but this is a family joint...

Definitely excited for this match up. Would be really sweet if these teams are ranked top 10 when they meet as that would add some juice to the game. Only thing I'd take differently about this is if it were scheduled in October instead of September so both teams can build a resume of wins (and both be unbeaten when they meet)

I thought with the playoff that we would be scheduling tougher out-of-conference games.  I mean seriously, since 2000 ND has a losing record vs BigTen teams.
