The ACC released the full basketball schedule for the conference, and fans of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish can start circling a game here and there (and here and there).
Notre Dame has a nice schedule to start the season with a mix of the normal winnable games, and a few Big 10 challenges including the Indiana Hoosiers in Indianapolis, and the Michigan State Spartans in East Lansing. The Irish could also play the Michigan Wolverines in the Maui Invitational.
Once the ACC schedule starts at the end of December, the Irish will face another tough slate of teams.
A few things to note
- ND plays the North Carolina Tar Heels twice
- ND Plays Duke on the road
- ND finishes the season on the road against the Virginia Cavaliers
All of Notre Dame’s 31 regular-season games and two exhibition contests will be nationally broadcast with 19 of those dates on the ESPN (ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU) family of networks. Three of the ACC matchups are part of ESPN’s Big Monday package — at Duke (Jan. 29), at North Carolina (Feb. 12) and at home against Miami (Feb. 19). The Irish have not made three appearances on Big Monday since the 2012-13 season.
Twelve games this season will be on ACC Network Extra (available online via the WatchND app) or the ACC Network (affiliates to be announced).
