NOTRE DAME, Ind. - Notre Dame and Texas A&M will play Aug. 31, 2024, in College Station, Texas, and Sept. 27, 2025, at Notre Dame Stadium. These two contests will mark the first regular-season meetings between the Irish and Aggies since a two-game series in 2000 and 2001.
"These two contests between Notre Dame and Texas A&M figure to be excellent intersectional attractions," says Notre Dame vice president and athletics director Jack Swarbrick. "We had set a goal of adding representation from the Southeastern Conference to our future schedules, and we've accomplished that with the addition of this series, as well as the one with Georgia."
Notre Dame and Texas A&M have played on five previous occasions, with the Irish leading the series 3-2. The lone regular-season meetings produced a 24-10 Irish victory over the 23rd-rated Aggies in 2000 in Notre Dame Stadium, followed by a 24-3 Texas A&M triumph in 2001 in College Station. In that season-opening Irish win in 2000, Arnaz Battle made his first career start at quarterback for Notre Dame and threw for 133 yards and two scores while also rushing for 50 net yards.
The first three games between the Irish and Aggies came in Dallas in the Cotton Bowl:
The Notre Dame-Texas A&M games are the latest in a series of two-year, home-and-home scheduling agreements for the Irish--following recent announcements of games against Georgia (2017 and 2019) and Ohio State (2022 and 2023).
