Both schools are sponsored by Under Armour and a press conference is planned for Monday in Chicago.

"It's especially meaningful for this announcement to come this month so shortly after the passing of Ara Parseghian because Ara's first game as Notre Dame's head coach was at Madison against Wisconsin and connections between these two schools continue in a host of ways".

"One piece of it moves, then you've got to go back and try and refigure it".

In 2020, the Fighting Irish and the Badgers will square off on October 3 at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin, home of the NFC North's Green Bay Packers.

The sanctions are also aimed at stopping Russian Federation from meddling in USA elections, but Moscow denies ever doing this. Earlier, Trump had signed a bill overwhelmingly approved by the Congress that imposed new sanctions on Russian Federation.

Notre Dame does not have any players from the state of Wisconsin now on its roster. The Irish have never lost there; they are 10-0-2 in the home of the Chicago Bears. The Lambeau Field game will count as a Wisconsin home game and the Soldier Field game will be part of Notre Dame's NBC television package. The teams have met 16 times. It's been a while in the works.

Both games will be designated as Shamrock Series match ups, Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick said. Notre Dame scored a 31-7 victory in the most recent meeting on September 26, 1964, in Ara Parseghian's debut as Notre Dame's head coach.

"There's so many connections here".
