ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) -- Notre Dame will face Navy at the home stadium of the Washington Redskins in 2014.

Navy officials announced Thursday that the long-time rivalry will move to FedExField in Landover, Md., on Nov. 1, 2014. The teams last played there in 1998.

The Irish and Midshipmen meet in South Bend on odd years, and on even years the contest is Navy's home game -- customarily played at regional NFL venues. The two schools, which have played every year since 1926, met for the 86th time on Sept. 1 at Aviva Stadium in Dublin, Ireland. Next year's game will take place on Nov. 2 in South Bend.

Navy's football series with Notre Dame, which is the longest continuous intersectional rivalry in college football, had been extended to 2026.
