On Thursday morning, the Atlantic Coast Conference announced four additional games between the Hokies and the Irish through the year 2036, culminating with a Labor Day night tilt in Lane Stadium that very year.
NC State, which beat the Irish at Carter-Finley Stadium in a hurricane last season and will play them again at home in 2023 and on the road in 2025, have added games against Notre Dame to its schedule in 2029 and 2035 in Raleigh, and 2031 and 2037 in South Bend. The two schools will play in consecutive years in 2022-23 and 2027-28. Notre Dame will host 30 of the games from 2026 through 2037, while 30 are on the road.

DeVos has also angered the African-American community with her commitment to school choice and vouchers. The university's president, Edison Jackson, interrupted her speech with a warning to students.
Only one game has a specific date assigned so far. By the end of the 2037 season, Notre Dame will have played 120 games against ACC competition.
Got that everyone? Start getting your tailgating plans ready now, you're on the clock and have about 19 more years to prepare. Given the status of Notre Dame's lucrative television contract with NBC, they will likely remain conference-less in football for quite some time ahead. FSU won the following two seasons, a regular season win in 1994 and an Orange Bowl victory in 1995, before the Fighting Irish won in the first game played in Tallahassee in 2002. Clemson's win in 2015 was a battle of Top 12 teams in a driving rain and it was gained the year before the Tigers won the 2016 National title. The fact those matchups are set from 2026 through 2037, well, that garnered some chuckles from college football fans and reporters across social media.
