USF and Notre Dame have announced the final two dates of their three-game football series, including the Fighting Irish’s trip to Tampa on Sept. 15, 2029.

The Bulls, who fell to the Irish 52-0 in South Bend last September, return to Notre Dame Stadium to conclude the series on Sept. 13, 2031.

The series was arranged late last summer when both teams’ 2020 non-conference schedules were decimated by the coronavirus. Notre Dame was one of only two non-conference foes the Bulls faced last season; USF was the Irish’s lone non-ACC foe.

The Bulls’ future non-conference opponents through 2031 now include Alabama (three games), Boise State (two), Brigham Young (two), Florida (three), Louisville (three), Miami (three), Notre Dame (two) and North Carolina State (two).
