Plans are in the works for Notre Dame to visit Clemson's Death Valley during the 2015 football season, coach Dabo Swinney told a Prowl & Growl gathering in Spartanburg last night.
The first Clemson-Notre Dame meeting since 1979 has been widely rumored during the past week, as the Irish attempt to shuffle previous scheduling commitments accommodate its move to the ACC.
Notre Dame will begin functioning as a full member of the ACC in all sports except football this summer, and has agreed to play five ACC schools in football each season beginning in 2014.
ACC commissioner John Swofford revealed last week that the Irish will play at Florida State in 2014, though a date was not announced. Notre Dame will also play Pittsburgh and Syracuse that season, with two other ACC opponents yet to be announced.
The only non-conference opponents currently on Clemson's 2015 schedule are South Carolina and Wofford.
It has been reported that Arizona State has balked at FSU's plans to drop the Sun Devils from its schedule in order to clear way for its ACC commitment.
A long-term framework for Notre Dame playing ACC schools has not yet been announced. But with the league's new lineup set to include 15 teams, after Louisville comes on board in 2014, there is speculation that the Irish will rotate their schedule, playing a new set of five teams each three years and then reversing home-and-home assignments.
