Notre Dame-Navy to meet at FedExField in Maryland in 2014

The 2014 Navy-Notre Dame game will be played on Nov. 1 at FedExField in Landover, Md, home of the Redskins.

This will be the first meeting between the two schools at FedExField since 1998. Navy last played at FedExField on Dec. 10, 2011 when the Mids defeated Army, 27-21. Notre Dame beat Maryland at FedExField in 2011.

Naval Academy Director of Athletics Chet Gladchuk. and Notre Dame Director of Athletics and Vice President Jack Swarbrick announced last fall that Navy's football series with Notre Dame, which is the longest continuous intersectional rivalry in college football, had been extended to 2026, which will be the centennial year for the series.

The Irish and Mids meet in South Bend on odd years; while on even years the contest is Navy's home game, customarily played at regional NFL venues. The two schools, which have played every year since 1926, met for the 86th on Sept. 1 at Aviva Stadium in Dublin, Ireland. Next year's game will take place on Nov. 2 in South Bend.

On Wednesday, it was announced that the Notre Dame-Michigan 2013 contest at Michigan Stadium will be played at night.
