YOUNGSTOWN — Youngstown State men’s basketball will visit Notre Dame this upcoming season, according to a game contract obtained by The Vindicator as part of a records request.

The contest, set for Nov. 13, will be the fourth between the Irish and Penguins. YSU is 0-3 in those games. The teams last met in 2015, an 87-78 Irish victory.

YSU will be paid $85,000 for the game.

Two other game contracts were returned as part of the request.

Finally, Jeff Goodman of Stadium reported YSU will take part in Navy’s MTE from Nov. 18-20. In addition to the Midshipmen, Youngstown State will face UC San Diego as part of the three-team round robin.
