The South Florida Bulls announced on Monday that they’ve scheduled the last two games of the three-game Notre Dame series with the Irish coming to Tampa on September 15, 2029, and the Bulls heading back to South Bend on September 13, 2031.

USF Vice President of Athletics Michael Kelly landed the 2020 Notre Dame game just a month before the game was played due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic which canceled games at Texas, Nevada, and FAU.
Per the original contract, neither team will get a guaranteed payout for traveling, but this may have changed with the finalization of the two games. The Daily Stampede has inquired about this.
The Bulls were shut out 52-0 in a completely forgettable game to even the series at 1-1, but in eight years a whole new crop of Bulls will be able to exact revenge on the Irish and take the series lead back.
USF has their non-conference slate fully booked for the next seven seasons through 2027, which include games versus Florida, Alabama, BYU, NC State, Boise State, Louisville, and Miami.
Head coach Jeff Scott will begin year two with a primetime game on Thursday, September 2 at NC State.
