The ACC has released Notre Dame's slate for the first three seasons of the school's partial football membership in the conference, which begins with the 2014 season.

When commissioner John Swofford called Notre Dame's addition a "win-win" for the conference, one key aspect was every ACC school getting a game against the Fighting Irish on its schedule. As promised, the Fighting Irish will face all 14 ACC schools in the first three years of the scheduling agreement.

"The football partnership between the ACC and Notre Dame will not only enhance our league’s already ambitious football schedules but also will provide terrific fan excitement," Swofford said in a release. "One of the benefits, moving forward, is that almost all of our student-athletes will have an opportunity to play against Notre Dame during their ACC careers which is extremely special."

Some of the games, like Notre Dame-Syracuse in 2014 and Notre Dame-Boston College in 2015, were previously scheduled and worked into the Fighting Irish's rotation.

As you can see, Notre Dame will alternate between having three home games and two away and two home games and three away each year. Barring any further conference expansion, the Fighting Irish will face every ACC team home and away in a six-year cycle.
