Notre Dame's ACC opponents announced for 2014-16

SOUTH BEND – Notre Dame knows which Atlantic Coast Conference football teams it will be playing in the first three years of the university's deal with the conference.

The Irish and ACC announced the alternating three Notre Dame home games and two road games and two home games and three road games for the 2014, 2015 and 2016 seasons.

Notre Dame will join the ACC this summer for every sport except football and hockey. As part of the agreement, the Irish will play five football games every season against ACC opponents, starting in 2014. Notre Dame's opponents from the conference will rotate every three years.

In 2014, Notre Dame will play host to Louisville, North Carolina and Wake Forest. The Irish will have road games against Florida State and Syracuse.

In 2015, Notre Dame travels to Clemson, Pittsburgh and Virginia, and it will play host to Boston College and Georgia Tech.

In 2016, the Irish will play host to Duke, Miami and Virginia Tech, and they will have road games against North Carolina State and Syracuse.

The dates for the games between Notre Dame and ACC teams are still being determined.

"The football partnership between the ACC and Notre Dame will not only enhance our league's already ambitious football schedules but also will provide terrific fan excitement," ACC commissioner John Swofford said in a statement. "One of the benefits, moving forward, is that almost all of our student-athletes will have an opportunity to play against Notre Dame during their ACC careers which is extremely special."
