Ball State University announced Monday that they will travel to South Bend and take on Notre Dame. The game is scheduled for September 8, 2018.
“The opportunity to play one of the most storied programs in college football in a historic stadium will be very special for our student-athletes and everyone else associated with Ball State football,” said Cardinals head coach Pete Lembo in the release.
This game will be the first on the gridiron between the two Hoosier State schools. The universities are separated by fewer than 150 miles.
Notre Dame will have their full allotment of ACC games on the 2018 schedule, along with a November 3rd game at Northwestern and to-be-determined dates versus Navy and Stanford. The only other out-of-conference game scheduled for Ball State in the 2018 season is a September 22nd contest against Western Kentucky in Muncie.
