Did you ever doubt it?

According to NBC 15 in Madison, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and Wisconsin Badgers will play this Shamrock Series game in prime time at Lambeau Field in Green Bay.

Normally the game time’s aren’t released for at least a couple more months — but none of this is surprising. Almost all of Notre Dame’s Shamrock Series games have been at night, with the exception of 2018’s matchup against the Syracuse Orange at Yankee Stadium.

With the guidelines in place between Notre Dame and NBC, we will likely see one more night game in 2020. Games in South Bend against the Clemson Tigers or Stanford Cardinal are the most likely choices, and I would give the edge to Clemson for obvious reasons.

Notre Dame is 8-6 all-time against the Badgers, but have not played since 1964 at Camp Randall Stadium. Notre Dame won that game 31-7 with Ara Parseghian as the Irish coach.


While the 2020 game at Lambeau is a Shamrock Series home game for Notre Dame, and will be shown by NBC, the two teams will meet again in 2021 at Soldier Field in Chicago. The 2021 game will have Wisconsin as the designated home team — which means it could be FOX, ABC, ESPN, or the Big 10 Network that gets the broadcast rights.

Let me just say, once again, that college games should be played in college stadiums. This decision by Wisconsin and Notre Dame to move these games to neutral sites is an absolute abomination. Taking a fairly high profile game out of Notre Dame Stadium is not the smartest way to schedule — nor does it offer anything of value other than a gimmick (which is all the Shamrock Series really is).

Also... they better wear some version of these uniforms or I will riot:
