    Officials from Lone Star Sports & Entertainment have held preliminary talks with Notre Dame about bringing a football game to Reliant Stadium.

    “It’s all very preliminary,” said David Brady, director of Lone Star Sports & Entertainment. “We’ve at least opened the dialogue.”

    Notre Dame plans to schedule a football game each season at neutral sites starting in 2009, school officials said earlier this month.

    I wonder who the Irish will play... It won't be Rice or UH.

    And I don't see UT taking them on--they like an easy non-conference schedule.

    Maybe Coach Fran will do it...

    I'll be sure to miss it unless they are playing my Cougars.

    Texas probably would like to play Notre Dame again. It's not like Notre Dame is powerhouse right now. Things change over a few years after the games are scheduled though. OSU was no knock over.

    But, playing two games a year on a neurtal site doesn't seem realistic for the Longhorns. They would want a home/away.

    I can see why ND would love this. A trip to one of the premier recruiting areas in the country, a neutral field, a bigger take at the gate. But, why would UT or A&M want to lose a home game? It would have to be against UH or Rice.

    I agree, not many recruits leave Texas or if they do they goto OU or Neb.
