    The Fighting Irish want to rekindle an old rivalry with the Miami Hurricanes.

    They're eyeing a battle field in Chicago for their next skirmish.

    Notre Dame is in talks with the University of Miami to play a football game at Soldier Field in 2012, the Chicago Tribune reports. The paper quotes sources who say the schools are trying to work out a series of meetings to come up with a possible date.

    The two teams have not met on the gridiron since 1990.

    Their rivalry was considered one of the league’s biggest in the '80s. In 1988, Notre Dame knocked off then-No. 1 Miami by one-point on their way to the national championship.

    The next season, the Hurricanes returned the favor, downing then-No.1 Notre Dame before going on to win their own title.

    Regular season bowl-like games are not new to Notre Dame’s schedule. This year, the Irish combat the Army at Yankee Stadium. Next season they will play Maryland on the Redskins' turf, Fed Ex Field.
