It may not possess the fanfare or pageantry of a high-stakes college football rivalry, but the Battle for the Legends Trophy has a history of dramatic, tension-filled moments.

The two programs first met in the 1925 Rose Bowl but played just three times between that matchup and the final pre-modern meeting in 1964. However, the Irish and Cardinal commenced their modern rivalry in 1988, which has been played annually since.

As of last season's thrilling showdown—a 20-13 Notre Dame victory in overtime—the Irish lead the series 17-9.
