Report: Notre Dame-Boston College rivalry extended

With college football bracing for a major change with the potential expansions of conferences, one thing will stay the same for a while: Notre Dame will play Boston College.

The Irish and Eagles reached a preliminary agreement to extend their rivalry through at least 2019, according to the Boston Herald.

Notre Dame will play host to Boston College in 2011, 2016 and 2018, and the Eagles will have home games against the Irish in 2012, 2015 and 2019.

The Notre Dame-Boston College rivalry had its last game scheduled for Oct. 2 at Chestnut Hill.

"(Notre Dame athletic director) Jack Swarbrick and I agreed that since Boston College and Notre Dame are the only Catholic institutions that play Division 1-A football, we should continue to play each other over a period of years," Boston College athletic director Gene DeFilippo told the Herald.
