Irish to host 3 ACC teams in 2014

Notre Dame will host Louisville, North Carolina and Wake Forest in its first year of a partial ACC schedule in 2014, ESPN's Brett McMurphy reports.

As part of Notre Dame's move to the ACC as a full member in all sports but football, the Fighting Irish will annually play five games against ACC opponents starting in 2014.

In 2014, the Fighting Irish will also visit Florida State and play a road game against Syracuse [at] MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., sources said.

Said ACC Commissioner John Swofford in a news release on Friday: “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. 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.”

In 2015, Clemson, Pittsburgh and Virginia will play host to the Irish, with Notre Dame hosting Boston College and Georgia Tech.

In 2016, the Irish will play host to Duke, Miami and Virginia Tech and will have road contests with NC State and Syracuse.

Notre Dame’s games with Syracuse in 2014, Pittsburgh and Boston College in 2015, and Miami and Syracuse in 2016, already had been tentatively listed on future Irish schedules.
