Notre Dame sets ACC schedule for 2014-16
Notre Dame will join the ACC as a partial member in 2014, playing five ACC opponents per year.
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.
