Irish to face Seminoles in 2014

Notre Dame will rekindle its football rivalry with Florida State in 2014, according to the Seminoles' Twitter account.

On Friday, Florida State posted on its official athletic department account: "John Swofford, @theACC Commissioner, announced Notre Dame will play the #Noles in Tallahassee in 2014. More info to come."

There was no announcement on when the game would be played.

The Irish's game against the Seminoles will be part of the agreement reached by Notre Dame and the ACC when the university moved all of its sports, except football and hockey, to the conference.

Notre Dame will leave the Big East for the ACC in the 2013-14 season, and as part of the agreement, the Irish will play five games against ACC schools every year starting in 2014.

Along with Florida State, the Irish are scheduled to play Syracuse and Pittsburgh in 2014 with two more ACC school yet to be added.

Notre Dame fell to Florida State 18-14 in the 2011 Champs Sports Bowl in Orlando, Fla. The Irish are 2-5 all-time against the Seminoles.
