The classic rivalry between Notre Dame and Navy, two teams that have met every season since 1927, will host its 2012 meeting (86th overall) in Dublin, Ireland, in the 50,000-seat Aviva Stadium, which just opened in May 2010.

I like it. Might pose some interesting logistical problems, like making sure everyone has passports. And I wasn't aware that American football was all that big in Ireland. (Maybe that's why it's only in a 50,000-seat stadium). In any event, it'll be the experience of a lifetime for both teams, perhaps moreso for the Irish, since after college it stands to reason that the Midshipmen players will be traveling all over the world with the Navy.

They met each other in Ireland in '96, so there should be some members of the Athletic Department staffs who should be familiar with the logistics. Doing it for the opening game of the season seems odd though.
