Future Notre Dame Schedule

Took a look at it from outside looking in & this is what I would want to watch. 10 games vs BCS. 5 ACC, 3 B1G (or BYU) & 2 PAC. 11th game is Navy @ home or neutral site. 12th game is against a small private school to start the season. I don't care much for Oklahoma or Arizona State being on the schedule but I guess there'd be some wiggle room in Week 4 if BYU grew stale.

12-Sep B1G @ Michigan State Michigan State @ Michigan State Michigan State @ Michigan State Michigan State
19-Sep B1G Purdue @ Purdue Purdue @ Purdue Purdue @ Purdue
26-Sep B1G Northwestern @ Northwestern Michigan @ Michigan BYU @ BYU

Start the season at home against a private non-BCS team like the military academies.

Always play Sparty Week 2 & Purdue Week 3. Alternate the home games.

Week 4 rotate Northwestern, Michigan & BYU so you play each 2 times every 6 years. Get the B1G games done early.

24-Oct ACC NC State @ Louisville Virginia Tech @ NC State Louisville @ Virginia Tech
31-Oct ACC @ Georgia Tech @ Duke (Charlotte) @ North Carolina @ Syracuse (NYC) @ Virginia @ Wake (Charlotte)

Start ACC season the 1st week of October against 1 of the big 3 football schools - FSU, Clemson & Miami. Play each every 3rd year.

Take a week off before playing Stanford or USC at home.

Continue ACC season in Week 8 against the other public football-minded schools - NCST, Louisville & Va Tech. Play each every 3rd year.

Week 9 is always a road game so Week 12 can always be a home game before the season-ending trip to Cali. Ga Tech, Virginia & UNC are a group as the ACC's public Ivys. Instead of playing Duke, Cuse or Wake at their on campus stadium (30k-50k seats), the game moves to a nearby NFL stadium in Charlotte or NYC.

7-Nov Navy @ Navy (Baltimore) Navy @ Navy (DC) Navy @ Navy (NYC) Navy
14-Nov ACC Pittsburgh @ Pittsburgh Boston College @ Boston College Pittsburgh @ Pittsburgh
21-Nov ACC Syracuse Virginia Wake Forest Georgia Tech Duke North Carolina
29-Nov PAC @ USC @ Stanford @ USC @ Stanford @ USC @ Stanford

1st week of November is reserved for the Navy game. Either at home or at a neutral site in Baltimore, DC, NYC or Ireland/ London (not listed, 2020). Rotate between those 4 sites.

The 4th ACC game is against Pitt or BC. As Notre Dame's 2 historic rivals in the ACC, they alternate home&home's with the Irish instead of playing every 3rd game like the other 12 teams.

Week 12 is always a home game since Week 13 is always a long road trip. The other group ND will play in Week 9/Week 12 is the private schools - Cuse, Duke & Wake. Play each every 3rd year.

As always, finish the year @ USC or @ Stanford.

Balance of home games - neutral site - away games.
