Ball State 2018 Non-Conference Schedule
Sept. 8 at Notre Dame
Sept. 22 vs. Western Kentucky
The Ball State football team has added an eight-time AP national champion to its non-conference schedule in 2018.
The Cardinals will travel to South Bend, Ind. to take on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish for the first time in school history. The game will take place on Sept. 8, 2018.
“The opportunity to play one of the most storied programs in college football in a historic stadium will be very special for our student-athletes and everyone else associated with Ball State football,” head coach Pete Lembo said in a statement.
Notre Dame Stadium is scheduled to be in its second year of a new renovation when Ball State becomes the fourth Mid-American Conference school to take on the Fighting Irish, who have the best win percentage among all major college football programs.
Through tomorrow at 5 p.m., any fan who purchases at least two season tickets will receive a green Nike Ball State shirt and the choice of either Lucky Charms cereal for a year or Shamrock Milkshakes from Muncie McDonald's locations for themselves and 20 of their friends.
