In totally unsurprising news, BYU has made its first scheduling announcement of its independent era by securing a six-game series with Notre Dame through 2020. This was a pretty obviously necessary move for BYU, who needed a high-profile opponent with the flexibility of an independent schedule, and Notre Dame is singularly equipped to fill that need.
Of course, BYU and Notre Dame also have a little bit in common; they're both independent universities, traditional football powers, and iconic academic representatives of their respective religious denomination. They were practically made to be rivals. And if they must be rivals, well, every rivalry deserves a nickname. Here are our suggestions:
- Holy War
- This One's For All The God Marbles
- Sects And Violence
- The Granddaddy Of Us All
- The Indie 100
