Syracuse football to host Notre Dame in 2029 and 2037

These games have been a part of an agreement between Notre Dame and the ACC where they play a partial conference schedule (usually five games) as part of their deal to remain an independent in football and join the conference in everything else.

The University of Louisville football team will take on Notre Dame four times between 2030 and 2035, as announced Thursday by the Atlantic Coast Conference.

For those scoring at home, the Fighting Irish will host five of the initial nine games between the school.

Only one game has a specific date assigned so far.

Previously, Syracuse and Notre Dame were announced to play at Notre Dame in 2018 and 2025, and Syracuse in 2022.

The Fighting Irish play Labor Day night games at Clemson in 2031 and at Virginia Tech in 2036.

If you care about games nine years out, let alone 20, you can find the Irish's ACC schedule for 2026-37 on the ACC website.

The two teams have met eight time before, with FSU football holding a 6-2 advantage all-time.

Miami and Notre Dame discontinued their (mostly) annual series after things got heated during the 1980s. Notre Dame went on to win the National Championship that season. The fact those matchups are set from 2026 through 2037, well, that garnered some chuckles from college football fans and reporters across social media. Just 31 years old at the time, Ford is still the second youngest coach to beat Notre Dame at Notre Dame Stadium (opened in 1930).

Laughter aside, here are the formalities: Miami, which traveled to South Bend this past season and is set to host Notre Dame on October 29 at Hard Rock Stadium, will play at Notre Dame in 2028 and 2031.
