Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - USC and Notre Dame have reached an agreement to ensure one of college football's most storied rivalries will continue through the 2023 season.

This football rivalry has taken place every year since 1926, with the exception of the 1943-45 seasons. The Fighting Irish hold a slim 44-35-5 lead over the Trojans in the series.

Both schools agreed to keep games held on Thanksgiving weekend of even- numbered years in Los Angeles, and games held in mid-October of odd numbered years in South Bend.

The Trojans have also arranged a three-game series with BYU beginning later this decade. In addition, USC added home games against Idaho and Arkansas State in 2015 and New Mexico in 2016.

"Not only are we pleased to be able to extend our storied series with Notre Dame, but we were able to keep the game on the traditional dates of Thanksgiving weekend in Los Angeles and mid-October in South Bend," said USC athletic director Pat Haden. "Adding the series with BYU, which is a great matchup for the fans of both teams and for all college football fans, helped us in that regard.

"The new Pac-12 scheduling format, which precludes scheduling a game the first weekend of December because of the Pac-12 Championship Game, has presented issues as we move forward with our football scheduling. We want to have as many home games as possible each year for our fans and we also want to have a bye week every season, so some of our non-conference scheduling options now are more limited. But, as we continue to fill out our future schedules, we believe we will have a challenging mix of non-conference opponents in the upcoming years."
