Notre Dame will head to Boston next week for the latest edition of the Shamrock Series featuring the Irish football team.

The iconic Fenway Park will host a Notre Dame home game Saturday night as the Irish take on Boston College. It will be the first football game played at Fenway Park since the Boston Patriots of the American Football League took the field Dec. 1, 1968.

The transition from baseball field to football field is nearly complete. The Boston Red Sox played their last home game of the 2015 season on Sept. 27.

The Fenway Park Twitter account shared photos and video of the progress.

Watch the #RedSox grounds crew take #FenwayPark to another level in preparation for #NDvsBC. ⚾️➡️
