Notre Dame is reportedly moving one of its seven scheduled home games to a neutral site for the 2018 season.
The Fighting Irish are scheduled to host Syracuse in South Bend on November 17, in the season’s second-to-last game.
Instead, it appears that the game will be played in the Big Apple.
According to a report by The Athletic’s Matt Fortuna, Notre Dame and Syracuse will be played at Yankee Stadium.

The last two games between the two programs were also played in the New York City area. Notre Dame defeated Syracuse 31-15 in 2014 and 50-33 in 2016, in two games played at Metlife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Syracuse upset the Fighting Irish in South Bend in 2008, 24-23. The Fighting Irish are 5-3 all-time against the Orange.
This will be Notre Dame’s second neutral site game in four weeks. The Irish play Navy at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego on October 27.
Both teams have fairly recent history at Yankee Stadium. Syracuse won the Pinstripe Bowl in both 2010 and 2012, while Notre Dame won the game in 2013.
Update: The move has been officially announced.
Notre Dame says that it will be the 2018 Shamrock Series game.
