INDIANAPOLIS -

The 2014 football game between Purdue and Notre Dame will be played in Indianapolis rather than South Bend.

The Sept. 13 game will be played at Lucas Oil Stadium, home of the Indianapolis Colts. Kickoff will be 7:30 p.m. ET, and the game will be televised live on Channel 13.

"We are excited to bring this great instate rivalry game to Indianapolis next season," Purdue athletics director Morgan Burke said. "Both schools have great fan and alumni bases there, so it will make for an entertaining evening of college football."

The game will remain a home contest for Notre Dame. However, Purdue will have access to some 10,000 seats - twice the normal visiting-school allotment - on the Boilermakers' side of the field throughout all levels of Lucas Oil Stadium.

Ticket prices will be announced later.

Purdue and Notre Dame last met in the capital city of Indiana on Sept. 8, 1984, for the dedication of the Colts' former home facility, the Hoosier Dome. Purdue upset eighth-ranked Notre Dame 23-21 in front of 60,672 fans.

Following the 2014 game, the Boilermakers and the Fighting Irish will next meet Sept. 19, 2020, at Purdue. The teams subsequently will play Sept. 18, 2021, at Notre Dame; Sept. 14, 2024, at Purdue; Sept. 13, 2025, at Notre Dame; and in 2026 on a date and at a neutral site location to be determined.

The schools' athletics directors, Burke and Jack Swarbrick, are working on additional dates beyond 2026, with the next scheduled game to be played at Purdue.

"Jack and I tried everything we could to keep the series going without interruption," Burke said. "But, between the Big Ten going to a nine-game schedule and Notre Dame's affiliation with the Atlantic Coast Conference, it just didn't work out. The series is important to both schools, and we are pleased that we are able to extend it through 2026."
