Notre Dame adds 5 more games with Clemson

Clemson now knows when it will play Notre Dame in football for the next 20 years.

The Tigers and the Irish will meet five additional times through the 2037 football season, the ACC announced on Thursday. Of course the 2020, 2022 and 2023 games were previously announced by the ACC. Times and dates will be announced at a later time.

Clemson will play at Notre Dame in 2020 and then will return back to South Bend in 2022. In 2023 the Irish will return to Death Valley for the first time since the Tigers’ thrilling 24-22 victory in 2015.

Notre Dame will also play at Clemson in 2027 before Clemson heads back to South Bend in 2028. The Tigers and Irish will play at Clemson on Labor Day night on August 30, 2031. They will then meet at Notre Dame in 2034 and at Clemson in 2037.

Clemson leads the all-time series against Notre Dame 2-1.

As part of the ongoing agreement, Notre Dame and the ACC announced the five football games that will be played annually between the Fighting Irish and members of the league from 2026 through 2037 on Thursday.

The agreement continues a partnership that began in 2014, in which the ACC’s 14 football member schools play the Fighting Irish an average of five times per year. By the end of the 2037 season, Notre Dame will have played 120 games against ACC opponents, beginning with the 2014 football season.

The ACC and Notre Dame had previously announced the schedule of games from 2017 through 2025.

“The ACC’s football partnership with Notre Dame has been extremely successful throughout our first four seasons,” said ACC Commissioner John Swofford. “As we look to the future, these games will continue to enhance the experience for our players, schools and fans.”

Half of the 60 games scheduled from 2026 through 2037 will be home games for ACC teams, and Notre Dame will play host to 30 games. Highlights include Labor Day Monday night games at Clemson on August 30, 2031 and at Virginia Tech on September 1, 2036.

ACC schools were 6-9 against the Fighting Irish over the past three seasons (2014-2016). The 2017 slate finds ACC teams playing three home games against Notre Dame (Boston College on Sept. 16, North Carolina on Oct. 7 and Miami on Nov. 11). The Fighting Irish will play host to NC State on Oct. 28 and to Wake Forest on Nov. 4.
