Notre Dame Fighting Irish 's football program will join the ACC as a partial member in 2014, joining Louisville Cardinals as the final pieces to the league's conference realignment. The Fighting Irish are already competing as ACC members in other sports, but next season will be the first year of the scheduling agreement which will feature five games against ACC opponents each season.

Due to a scheduling complication, Notre Dame will only play four ACC opponents in 2014 but make that up with six "conference games" in 2015 -- headlined by a date against Boston College Eagles in Fenway Park on Nov. 21, 2015. 


Sept. 27 -- at Syracuse Orange (MetLife Stadium)

Oct. 11 -- North Carolina Tar Heels

Oct. 18 -- at Florida State Seminoles

Nov. 22 -- Louisville Cardinals


Sept. 12 -- at Virginia Cavaliers

Sept. 19 -- Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets

Oct. 3 -- at Clemson Tigers

Nov. 7 -- at Pittsburgh Panthers

Nov. 14 -- Wake Forest Demon Deacons

Nov. 21 -- Boston College (Fenway Park)


Sept. 24 -- Duke Blue Devils

Oct. 1 -- at Syracuse (MetLife Stadium)

Oct. 8 -- at NC State Wolfpack

Oct. 29 -- Miami (Fla.) Hurricanes

Nov. 19 -- Virginia Tech Hokies

Notre Dame will have access to the ACC's bowl ties, but will not be eligible to compete for a conference title or have a spot in the Atlantic or Coastal divisions. The school describes the scheduling approach as a 6-5-1 model.
