The rivalry lives on. USC and Notre Dame agreed to extend their football series through the 2023 season on Wednesday. The Trojans have also set a a three-game series with BYU beginning late this decade, and have added home games against Idaho and Arkansas State in 2015 and New Mexico in 2016. "Not only are we pleased to be able to extend our storied series with Notre Dame, but we were able to keep the game on the traditional dates of Thanksgiving weekend in Los Angeles and mid-October in South Bend," said USC athletic director Pat Haden in a release. "Adding the series with BYU, which is a great matchup for the fans of both teams and for all college football fans, helped us in that regard." The Trojans will continue to host the Fighting Irish on Thanksgiving weekend in even-numbered years and play at South Bend in mid-October in odd-numbered years through 2023. The series began in 1926 and has featured some of the most memorable contests in college football history. Beginning this 2013 season, USC will have seven home games in all but three of the next 11 years. "The new Pac-12 scheduling format, which precludes scheduling a game the first weekend of December because of the Pac-12 Championship Game, has presented issues as we move forward with our football scheduling," Haden added. "We want to have as many home games as possible each year for our fans and we also want to have a bye week every season, so some of our non-conference scheduling options now are more limited. But, as we continue to fill out our future schedules, we believe we will have a challenging mix of non-conference opponents in the upcoming years."
