ARLINGTON, Texas —
Notre Dame is going to get a preview of the stadium that will host the first championship game in the new College Football Playoff.
The Fighting Irish will host Arizona State at Cowboys Stadium on Oct. 5.
That game is part of the school's "Shamrock Series'' in which Notre Dame, last season's BCS runner-up, plays home games in different parts of the country.
The Irish's game against Arizona State, a night game that will be part of NBC's package of Notre Dame games, will come a season before Cowboys Stadium is the site of the first title game under the new postseason system.
Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly is scheduled to be in North Texas next week to get a first-hand look at the stadium.
