Notre Dame and Boston College won't end the "Holy War" just yet.

The schools have agreed to extend their rivalry until at least 2019, the Boston Herald reported on Tuesday.

The matchup was scheduled to end this fall, but six games have been added to the rivalry. Boston College will host the game Oct. 2 and then three new games in 2012, 2015 and 2019.

The game will be played in South Bend, Ind., in 2011, 2016 and 2018.

"[ND athletic director] Jack Swarbrick and I agreed that since Boston College and Notre Dame are the only Catholic institutions that play Division 1-A football, we should continue to play each other over a period of years," BC athletic director Gene DeFilippo said, according to the Herald.

Notre Dame leads the series, which began in 1975, 10-9, but the Eagles had won five in a row before the Irish broke through last season.
