Notre Dame will join the Atlantic Coast Conference as a full member with the exception of football, but will play five football games annually against ACC teams, industry sources told ESPN's Brett McMurphy. The Irish will join the ACC as soon as it can exit the Big East. The Big East currently requires members to provide 27 months notice to exit although West Virginia, Pittsburgh and Syracuse were able to leave earlier by paying a higher exit fee.

Exit fee is now $50M because ND is putting 1 foot in the conference. FSU, Clemson and VT are staying put now.


I don't like it.

That's the big thing to come out of this for me. I don't like it, but if it ends with Notre Dame becoming a full football member and attracts a solid 16th member and allows them to renegotiate a better tv deal with ABC/ESPN then it could be good. A lot of "ifs" in that though.

Gay. So that's 5 vs. ACC, MSU, Purdue, Michigan, USC, Navy, BC. Pretty predictable schedule.
BC will probably be replaced with a cupcake, since they are in the ACC. ND's about to play murderous schedule after murderous schedule for years to come. :gunner:

This move solidifies ND as an independent for a long, long time to come.

Problem Solved:
Recommending Notre Dame Football's ACC Schedule Rotation



Notre Dame's going to start playing five ACC football games a year. Great! But how do you divide 14 opponents by five games? Here's a theoretical look at the future of Irish scheduling.

For the ACC as a whole, I can't imagine teams being asked to play nine conference games plus Notre Dame (especially with several of them maintaining tough out-of-conference rivalries) once the Irish come aboard as a ... whatever they are now. More likely: regular games against the Irish count as out-of-division conference games, both for scheduling and for the standings. There, that was easy.

History Lesson:
UND Football vs. ACC Football



Let’s look back at Notre Dame’s football history against current and future ACC teams.
•Boston College: 12-9
•Clemson: 1-1
•Duke: 3-1
•Florida State: 2-5
•Georgia Tech: 27-6-1
•Maryland: 2-0
•Miami: 16-7-1
•North Carolina: 16-2
•North Carolina State: 0-1
•Pittsburgh: 46-20-1
•Syracuse: 3-3
•Virginia: 1-0
•Wake Forest: 1-0

In total, the Irish have compiled a 130-55-3 record (.699 winning percentage) in 188 games against this group of teams.

Virginia Tech, one of the conference’s perennial football powerhouses, is the only ACC squad that Notre Dame has never met on the football field. It will be an exciting day, when the Fighting Irish and Hokies finally play – whether in Blacksburg, Va. or right here at Notre Dame.

Purdue expects Notre Dame's ACC move
to have little effect on football series


I wouldn’t expect (Wednesday’s) announcement to affect us,” athletic director Morgan Burke said in a statement released by the university. “We have a longtime relationship with Notre Dame involving many of our programs, and we expect it to continue.”

The schools have an agreement to play annually through 2021, but only the 2013 and 2014 games have signed contracts.

Purdue and Notre Dame have played every season since 1946.

Notre Dame Opts Out Of Its Series Against Michigan



The Fighting Irish notified the Wolverines that they are exercising a three-year out in their series contract, meaning the last meeting between the historic rivals will occur in 2014.

Through a Freedom of Information Act request, The Associated Press obtained a letter Tuesday from Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick to Michigan AD David Brandon, canceling the games from 2015 to 2017.

Shamrock Series bridges past and future and will continue

Different venue, very different uniforms -- but a familiar foe nonetheless

No. 9 Notre Dame's 25th meeting Saturday with Miami will put a new twist on one of the sport's most intense rivalries, as it's the fourth installment of the Irish's "Shamrock Series" -- when the school takes one home game to a major city and presents a taste of 21st-century life to a historic program.

Soldier Field is the venue of choice for the Irish this season, following the Alamodome, Yankee Stadium and FedEx Field. Athletic director Jack Swarbrick said at the team's preseason media day Aug. 16 that the annual off-site home game is in the cards through at least the 2016 season, with sites but not opponents nailed down. Next year's will feature Arizona State at Cowboys Stadium.

ACC decides to keep 8-game conference schedule for football


As a partial ACC member, Notre Dame will play five football games a year against ACC teams, while retaining as much of their traditional independent rivalries as possible. Per the exit policies for the Big East, the conference Notre Dame houses the rest of its sports, the Fighting Irish wouldn't be eligible to begin competition in the ACC until 2015. If a $5 million buyout is paid to the Big East before that time, though, Notre Dame can make the switch at any time.

Many believe the buyout could be paid before next school year.

FSU keeps partnerships with Clemson and Miami. The Hurricanes will use FSU and Virginia Tech as their primary partners. Two meetings per season -- one at home and one away -- with the teams in those partnerships will be guaranteed. The rest of the 14 non-conference games -- the ACC announced earlier this year it will be moving next year from a 16-game conference schedule to 18 games -- will feature home and away games with two rotating opponents, and five home-only games and and five road-only games. The current primary crossover partners will remain consistent with Syracuse and Pitt becoming primary crossover partners with each other.

Atlantic Division
Boston College Eagles
Clemson Tigers
Florida St. Seminoles
Maryland Terrapins
N.C. State Wolfpack
Syracuse Orange
Wake Forest Demon Deacons

Coastal Division
Duke Blue Devils
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
Miami Hurricanes
North Carolina Tar Heels
Pittsburgh Panthers
Virginia Cavaliers
Virginia Tech Hokies

Big East schism muddies Irish move to ACC


SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Notre Dame's athletic director says the recently announced split between the Big East and seven schools that don't play major college football could complicate the Fighting Irish's exit from the conference.

"Those two parties have to divide assets," Jack Swarbrick told reporters Monday. "It poses a question about who you're even talking to. Who is the Big East? Which of the two sides of that has the Big East name and rights, and who might lay claim to the Notre Dame affiliation going forward? It's an interesting dynamic to try and figure out where all that's headed. One of the real challenges we have right now is trying to assess when that might settle out."

Notre Dame is coming to the ACC early;
football arrangement still won't start until 2014



Notre Dame will become an official partial member of the ACC on July 1 this year after coming to an agreement to leave the fractured Big East. The decision was described by the league as "amicable."

That means the ACC will welcome Pittsburgh, Syracuse and Notre Dame this year, making it a 15-team league for most sports.


ACC commissioner John Swofford released this statement about today's news:

“Our conference, schools and fans are delighted that Notre Dame will join the ACC on July 1, 2013. The addition of Notre Dame, Pitt and Syracuse, followed by Louisville in 2014, positions us extremely well with an outstanding collection of 15 member institutions.

“As was previously announced, our annual five games against Notre Dame in football will begin with the 2014 season. This not only will enhance our league’s already ambitious football schedules but also will provide terrific fan excitement.

Notre Dame will play host to Louisville, North Carolina and Wake Forest. The Irish will have road games against Florida State and Syracuse.

•Space for classrooms, conferences, speakers, meetings, receptions and other events.

•A student center for assembly and activity areas.

•Resources for media, including facilities for the University’s expanding video and digital initiatives for academic purposes and external relations, as well as a press box.

•A location for various hospitality functions for community and campus patrons.

•Enhancements to the fan experience, including premium seating options.
