Hurricanes Take on Fighting Irish

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - Miami and Notre Dame have agreed to renew a football rivalry that during the 1980s helped define each program and decide several national championships.

The Hurricanes and Fighting Irish will play Oct. 6, 2012, at Soldier Field in Chicago, then play a home-and-home starting in 2016 at South Bend, Ind. They play in Miami the next season.

Miami won three national championships in the 1980s and beat Notre Dame during the regular season each time. Notre Dame beat Miami in 1988, when the Irish won their last national title, and in 1990.

After the 29-20 victory by the Irish in 1990 - which knocked Miami out of the national title hunt - the tense and at times nasty series was stopped.
