I would have thought so, but it appears we are the 2nd team ever to do it.

Purdue's claim is mired in scandal, ND was not the undisputed NC, they shared the title:

In 1966, Notre Dame shared the national title in football with Michigan State. The following season Notre Dame opened on the road at Purdue.

O.K., I got nothing, just grasping at the first straw. Still, a rare occurrence, and Purdue failed the sweep, so that option is still open.

Well, before there was a college football playoff, wasn't it always the "mythical" national champion. So, ND was a mythical champion, and not even a universally recognized champion.

Since the author went back to when the basketball tournament began, shouldn't the same standard apply to football? So yes, SU is the first team to have home openers against both the actual football and basketball college champions.
