The Four Horsemen will ride again in Notre Dame's 2024 Yankee Shamrock Series

NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- Notre Dame football has announced that the 2024 Shamrock Series will take place in Yankee Stadium, and it will include a special theme. 

October 18 marks the 100th anniversary of the legendary Four Horsemen backfield, which included Jim Crowley, Elmer Layden, Don Miller and Harry Stuhldreher, and the game where the famous photograph was taken by Grantland Rice in the New York Herald Tribune.

In that 1924 game, Notre Dame upset Army in a 13-7 victory in New York.

Notre Dame released this video on social media, teasing that the "Four Horsemen ride again."

This will be the third Shamrock Series game to be played at Yankee Stadium. Previously Notre Dame defeated Army 27-3 in 2010, and Syracuse 36-3 in 2018.

The Shamrock Series history trails back 15 years when Notre Dame "hosted" Washington State on the road at the Alamodome in San Antonio, and won 40-14.

The Irish have hosted 11 Shamrock Series "home games on the road" in total. They are 11-0 in this series.

This will be the 52nd meeting between Notre Dame and Army, where the Irish lead the all-time series 39-8-4.

The meeting between these two teams was integral in the development of each football program, with the annual trip to New York celebrating college football as a "true national sport."

Yankee Stadium has been home to this matchup 23 times, 22 of which took place at the original stadium.

The Four Horsemen game took place at the Polo Grounds, across from Harlem River where Yankee Stadium is located.
