Wisconsin, Notre Dame football agree to series at Lambeau, Soldier Field

A college football rivalry is about to get some new life with an expected announcement Monday that the University of Wisconsin and Notre Dame will face off in 2020 and 2021.

On Sunday, the Chicago Tribune confirmed that the two teams will play a home-and-home series beginning in 2020, with Wisconsin hosting the first game at Lambeau Field, home of the Green Bay Packers. The two teams will then meet again the following year in 2021 - this time at Soldier Field in Chicago, home of the Bears. The Irish have been affiliated with Under Armour for quite some time, while the Badgers are fresh off their first season with the brand after changing over from Adidas.

The two football powerhouses last met in 1964.

Notre Dame last played at Soldier Field in 2012, defeating Miami in a Shamrock Series game during ND's undefeated regular season.

Wisconsin went 11-3 and won the Cotton Bowl.

Bryce Harper out indefinitely with bone bruise; no ligament damage
Oddly enough, Samardzija was the nearest body to Harper when his foot slipped on first base Saturday night. That game started after 10 p.m., with a sparse crowd in attendance, a repeat that was spared Friday night.

The Badgers last played at Soldier Field in 2011, Russell Wilson leading a 49-7 drubbing of Northern Illinois.

Notre Dame is now hoping to have a bounceback season after they went 4-8 in the 2016 campaign.
