And now there are dates to the series.
Temple officially announced its three-game football series against Notre Dame on Thursday, releasing the first two dates of the slate.
The Irish will travel to Philadelphia for the first time since 1993 for the first game of the series. Notre Dame and Temple will play at Lincoln Financial Field on Oct. 11, 2014.
The second game will bring the Owls – a member of the Mid-American Conference – to Notre Dame Stadium on Sept. 26, 2015.
The third game will be announced at a later date and will be played in Notre Dame Stadium.
"Temple's football team is clearly a program on the rise, and it will pose great tests for us each year we play," Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said in a statement released by Temple. "We're looking forward to bringing the Fighting Irish back to Philadelphia and providing our strong East Coast fan base another opportunity to see its team in person."
Notre Dame has played 26 times in Philadelphia, going 14-1-1 in the city. The Irish defeated Navy 58-27 at Veterans Stadium in their last trip to Philadelphia.
"It's been nearly 20 years since a Notre Dame football team has played in Philadelphia, so we're excited about the opportunity to do so, in the process playing a Temple program for the first time in our history," Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick said in the statement.
The 2014 game will be the first time Temple and Notre Dame have played each other in football.
The Owls are coached by Steve Addazio, who was an assistant at Notre Dame from 1999 to 2001. He took over the program after Al Golden left for Miami.
"We are excited to have the opportunity to play Notre Dame," Addazio said in the statement. "This series is good for our players, our fans, and Philadelphia. Notre Dame's football tradition and national recognition are second to none. Playing strong non-conference opponents is a part of our blueprint, and Temple fans will not be disappointed."
