SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - South Florida, ranked No. 2 last season after opening 6-0, will play at Notre Dame in 2011.
The game is not part of Notre Dame's previously announced plan to play three Big East teams a season starting in 2011, John Heisler, Notre Dame's senior associate athletic director, said Wednesday.
The game against South Florida is a one-year deal. The three games Notre Dame agreed to play against Big East opponents will be home-and-home series, Heisler said.
Notre Dame, a longtime football independent, is a Big East member in most other sports.
South Florida, which just started playing football 11 seasons ago, joined the Big East in 2005.
