SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) -Notre Dame will face Washington State in San Antonio on Oct. 31, 2009.
The game at the Alamodome will be the first of annual offsite games Notre Dame plans to play to try to make its contests more accessible to fans around the country.
``Notre Dame has never played in San Antonio, so this will be a tremendous opportunity to showcase our program in a new city, and in a state in which we have a strong emphasis in recruiting,'' Notre Dame athletic director Kevin White said Friday.
The school announced on Thursday that it would play games in which it would be considered the home team at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Fla., in 2011 and 2014. No opponents have been announced
White has compared playing ``home'' games at other sites to the barnstorming approach that Knute Rockne took while coaching the Irish in the 1920s.
``We believe these events will provide great opportunities for fans to see our team play when they may be otherwise challenged to travel or obtain tickets for games in South Bend,'' he said.
Since it is considered a home game for Notre Dame, NBC will televise it.
