(NECN) - For the first time in almost half a century, Fenway Park will play host to a football game.

Boston College and Notre Dame will play at the famous stadium on Nov. 21, 2015.

The last Fenway football game was the Patriots' final home game in December of 1968.

The rivalry between B.C. and Notre Dame is known as the "Holy War," since they're the only two Catholic schools in college football's top division.
