The Washington Redskins announced on Thursday that the organization has come to terms on an agreement with the Naval Academy to host the 2014 Navy-Notre Dame game at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland, according to a press release from the team.

The game will take place on Nov. 1, 2014.

The two schools have met each other annually since 1926, which makes it the longest running intersectional rivalry in college football. When Navy and Notre Dame meet at FedEx Field in 2014, it will mark the 88th matchup between the two schools.

Last fall, it was announced that the schools had extended the series to 2026, which will mark the centennial mark for the rivalry. Notre Dame hosts the series in odd years, while Navy stages the event on even years (typically utilizing NFL stadiums in the region).

This year's event took place in Dublin, Ireland at Aviva Stadium. Notre Dame defeated Navy handily by a final score of 50-10.
