The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets announced today that they will play their 2020 and 2024 games against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium instead of on campus.

The Tech-Irish games will be played Nov. 14, 2020 and Oct. 19, 2024. The Irish will play in five NFL stadiums in 2020:

The Irish were supposed to play their Aug. 29 game against the Navy Midshipmen in MetLife Stadium — home of the New York Giants and New York Jets — but that game was moved to Dublin, Ireland.

The 2024 Irish schedule includes:

With home games against Miami-Florida Hurricanes and Florida State Seminoles yet to be scheduled.

The Irish lead the all-time series against Georgia Tech, 28 wins to 6, with the Irish prevailing at home, 30-22, in the teams’ last meeting in 2015. The Irish last played in Bobby Dowd Stadium at Historic Grant Field in 2006, a 14-10 victory.

Georgia Tech and Notre Dame were originally scheduled to play on Oct. 19 this year, but that game was moved back in 2016. As a result, Notre Dame is playing just four ACC opponents next year and six in 2020.

The Irish will host the Yellow Jackets at Notre Dame Stadium on Nov. 20, 2021.

  • Aug. 29 vs. Navy (Aviva Stadium, Dublin)
  • Sept. 12 vs. Arkansas (Notre Dame Stadium)
  • Sept. 19 vs. Western Michigan (Notre Dame Stadium)
  • Sept. 26 vs. Wake Forest (Charlotte)
  • Oct. 3 vs. Wisconsin (Green Bay)
