Notre Dame and Ohio State agree to home-and-home

Orlando Sentinel

Notre Dame and Ohio State will play a home-and-home in 2022 and 2023 according to an announcement made by the Fighting Irish on Thursday.

The two-game series was announced on Notre Dame's official twitter page for the football team.

The timing of the announcement comes just days before Notre Dame and Michigan end their storied rivalry after an acrimonious dispute.

The two schools agreed to suspend the series beginning in 2018 before Notre Dame decided to cancel the 2015-2017 games too. 

Michigan coach Brady Hoke famously said that Notre Dame was "chickening out" which added more bad blood to dying rivalry.

Ohio State and Notre Dame have met five times in their history with the last meeting coming at the 2006 Fiesta Bowl.

The Buckeyes defeated the Irish 34-20 to win their third straight in the series. Notre Dame won the first two meetings.

ND & @OhioStAthletics 2 of the most storied traditions in college football, have agreed to a 2 year series in 2022/23
