On Thursday afternoon Notre Dame announced yet another series with a top-notch opponent for the future. This time it will be with the Texas A&M Aggies for 2024 and 2025.
"These two contests between Notre Dame and Texas A&M figure to be excellent intersectional attractions," says Notre Dame vice president and athletics director Jack Swarbrick. "We had set a goal of adding representation from the Southeastern Conference to our future schedules, and we've accomplished that with the addition of this series, as well as the one with Georgia."

The Irish will travel to College Station on August 31, 2024 to play the Aggies on the same day that Michigan will be hosting the Texas Longhorns. The following year A&M will come to South Bend on September 25th.
Notre Dame has only played Texas A&M 5 times throughout history with the Irish holding a 3-2 edge in the series. The Aggies defeated Notre Dame to close out the 1987 in the Cotton Bowl which would be the last defeat the Irish would taste before setting a school record for wins and claiming the National Championship the following year. The next two meetings in 1992 and 1993 also occurred in the Cotton Bowl with Notre Dame winning both times.
The last two games were a home-and-home in 2000-01. The Irish upset the Aggies in South Bend to start the 2000 season but A&M returned the favor in Texas the following year.
