Saturday's contest will be the 50th meeting between Notre Dame and Army, and the first game to bring the gridiron to the new Yankee Stadium.
The series has generally been very one sided, with the Irish holding a decisive 37-8-4 record against the men from West Point. Army has not beaten Notre Dame in over half a century.
But when both teams were good, they were both very good. An in-season match-up of the top two ranked teams is extremely rare, but it happened consecutive years with these teams. Those two games comprise two of the top 10 best Notre Dame-Army games ever played.
