Florida State Set to Host Notre Dame in 2014

April 19, 2013


The Atlantic Coast Conference and the University of Notre Dame today announced the ACC opponents the Fighting Irish will play in the first three seasons of their football partnership with the league that begins with the 2014 season.

As part of the agreement to join the Atlantic Coast Conference, Notre Dame will play five ACC teams each year, alternating between three home games and two away and two home games and three away each year. Notre Dame will face every ACC team at least once in the first three-year rotation of games.

“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,” said ACC Commissioner John Swofford. “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 2014, Notre Dame will play host to Louisville, North Carolina and Wake Forest. The Irish will have road games against Florida State and Syracuse.

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.

Current ACC teams have played Notre Dame on 118 occasions, while the addition of Pittsburgh and Syracuse, which officially join the ACC on July 1, will increase that figure to 192 games.

Pittsburgh (68 games), Georgia Tech (34 games), Miami (25 games) and Boston College (22 games) have been the most frequent opponents among current or future ACC teams for the Irish.

Virginia Tech and Louisville will be meeting Notre Dame in football for the first time.

Notre Dame will be making its first trips to NC State (2016) and Virginia (2015).

The actual dates for each game are still being determined.
