Greensboro, N.C. — The Atlantic Coast Conference and Notre Dame Friday announced the annual football game schedule in which the Irish will face an ACC opponent beginning with the 2014 season through the 2016 season. The games are part of an agreement between the Conference and Notre Dame to play five ACC teams each year in football.

Due to previous schedule commitments, in the first year of the schedule, Notre Dame will face four ACC teams. But the Irish will then play six games against Conference foes in 2015 and thereafter, beginning in 2016, play five ACC teams each year.

In 2014, Notre Dame will face Syracuse, in a game hosted by the Orange in MetLife Stadium Sept. 27), then will host North Carolina (Oct. 11) and Louisville (Nov. 22) and will also travel to face Florida State in Tallahassee (Oct. 18).

In 2015, Notre Dame will host Georgia Tech (Sept. 19), Wake Forest (Nov. 14) and Boston College (Nov. 21) and will play at Virginia (Sept. 12), Clemson (Oct. 3) and Pitt (Nov. 7).

In 2016, Notre Dame will host Duke (Sept. 24), Miami (Oct. 29), and Virginia Tech (Nov. 19) and will travel to MetLife Stadium to play Syracuse (Oct. 1) and NC State (Oct. 8).

The hammering of the hinny we put on these guys will be of Biblical proportions. It will make God's awesome wrath he puts on people look like a day at the beach by games end. They (ND) will think they have just gone thru judgment day and didn't like the results.
