ACC announces Notre Dame's 2014-16 conference opponents

With all the conference shuffling and renaming going on over the last few months, it's easy to forget that Notre Dame is joining the ACC in all sports except football but, beginning next fall, the Fighting Irish will stage five games a year against ACC opponents. The conference and school jointly announced Notre Dame's five games for the 2014-16 seasons on Friday afternoon.

“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 the conference's 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.”

The dates will be worked out in future years, but here are Notre Dame's future opponents:

2014
vs. Louisville
vs. North Carolina
vs. Wake Forest
at Florida State
at Syracuse

2015
at Clemson
at Pittsburgh
at Virginia
vs. Boston College
vs. Georgia Tech

2016
vs. Duke
vs. Miami
vs. Virginia Tech
at NC State
at Syracuse

Each full-time ACC school will see Notre Dame once except for Syracuse, which gets to host the Fighting Irish twice. The conference stacked the schedule appropriately, with each of the ACC's heavyweights (Florida State, Clemson and Virginia Tech) spread out to appear once per season. The Fighting Irish in Death Valley. Beamer Ball at Touchdown Jesus. Is there any way we can move this agreement up a year?
