It's official: Notre Dame will be visiting Tempe to take on the Arizona State Sun Devils in 2014.

ASU athletic director Steve Patterson said in a statement that the schools were able to come to an agreement that will keep the game on the schedule after months of reports saying the Fighting Irish were looking to back out of the contest.

"We're pleased that Notre Dame was able to resolve its scheduling issues in a way that allows it to play at Sun Devil Stadium in 2014," Patterson said in a statement. "The game will now be played on Nov. 8, 2014. Our entire Sun Devil family—season ticket holders, fans, students, alumni—and our entire community here in the Valley have been looking forward to playing Notre Dame in Tempe since the original agreement was signed in 2008."

As part of the new agreement, the schools' scheduled meeting in 2017, which was to take place in South Bend, will not take place.

"While the game at Notre Dame in 2017 has been canceled, what is most important to us is that the game in Tempe has been saved," Patterson said.

The teams will meet this season on October 5 at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
