Jon Rothstein took to Twitter to report that the Cats and Fighting Irish will not be playing their previously scheduled neutral site game this season. The Cats played Notre Dame in Rupp Arena in 2020 with a return game to South Bend last season. The third and final game will be a neutral site battle.
