ACC and Notre Dame Extend Partnership

Notre Dame, ACC announce future matchups through 2037 (Yes, 2037) ACC, Notre Dame extend football partnership through 2037
Hilda Schwartz | 13 May, 2017, 10:27

On Thursday morning, the ACC announced the five annual games its member schools will play against Notre Dame in upcoming seasons.

Several showdowns between the Tigers and Fighting Irish are in the future.

Notre Dame still isn't a full-fledged member of the ACC in football. The Irish will also open with a Labor Day game in 2036 at Virginia Tech. Given the status of Notre Dame's lucrative television contract with NBC, they will likely remain conference-less in football for quite some time ahead.

Clemson will travel to Notre Dame for consecutive games in the series in 2020 and 2022, then Notre Dame will come to Clemson for consecutive games in 2023 and 2027.

Celtics rout Wizards on home court to take series lead
Boston led by as many as 26 points, negating Washington's physicality by spreading the floor and knocking down 16 3-pointers. They can't stay healthy but they have won two series in a row and that's better than losing two series in a row, I guess.

Kyle Dawson covers sports for the Aiken Standard.

But thanks to an extension of its partnership with the conference, the Irish will continue to play five games annually against ACC opponents for at least the next 20 years.

UofL will welcome the Fighting Irish in 2030, 2033 and 2035, with the Cardinals returning to South Bend, Ind., for the 2032 season. The 30 road games include two each against a dozen opponents and three each at Clemson and Louisville. "As we look to the future, these games will continue to enhance the experience for our players, schools and fans".

Laughter aside, here are the formalities: Miami, which traveled to South Bend this past season and is set to host Notre Dame on October 29 at Hard Rock Stadium, will play at Notre Dame in 2028 and 2031. The Cavaliers already have games against Notre Dame on the schedule in 2019 in South Bend, 2021 in Charlottesville and 2024 in South Bend.
