It looks like BC and Pitt will play ND every third year, as will the other 12. Albeit, they may assume preferred status by playing in the first year, similar to the NFL scheduling old rivals (Ariz-Dall, Denv-Sea) in the first year after the 2002 realignment.

The ACC and Notre Dame announced the schedule matching the Irish and its ACC opponents for the 2014 through 2016 seasons.
The games are part of an agreement for Notre Dame to play five ACC teams each year in football.

Because of previous commitments for 2014, Notre Dame will face four ACC teams this season, then will play six in 2015 and five, starting in 2016.

Prior to the agreement to play 5 ACC opponents each year, Notre Dame played the folowing 6 opponents every year (or so it seemed):
Michigan (Big Ten)
Michigan State (Big Ten)
Purdue (Big Ten)
USC (PAC-12)
Stanford (PAC-12)
Navy (Independent).

From what I can see, the annual arrangements with the three (3) Big Ten schools are now all history.

Important to note:


The ESPN/ACC deal that was announced this week at media day, includes a provision that IF Notre Dame football gives up its independence anytime during the duration of the TV deal, they must join the ACC.

So that settles it until 2036. It's either Indy or ACC.

The new deal means that NO ONE is leaving the ACC with their TV rights until after 2036.

If I'm the ACC I'd be a little worried about the Big 12 drying up the pool of potential expansion candidates. I would consider approaching UConn the same deal that Notre Dame has. Let them come in for Olympic sports and officially be independent in football but with an arrangement to play 5 football games a year against ACC competition. This gives the ACC another very valuable basketball brand and also some flexibility without adding a 15th school for football without a full membership commitment from Notre Dame.

Interesting idea.

UConn ultimately belongs in the ACC.

A FB only invitation would solidify their position, however UConn would NOT benefit financially from receiving P5 TV money, until they later become a full member.

So would UConn go for this, or hope the Big Ten or Big XII gives them a full membership invitation in the future ?

I don't really think the ACC should worry about "expansion candidates" drying up since they have 15 full members. At the end of the day, it's "Does this candidate actually bring something to the table that makes it worth splitting the pie another way?"

I think we're at or past the apex of "potential earning power with an additional member vs loss of value to inventory with such a big conference"

Do you get more money from a cut of rights adding the new teams' market, or more money from the GAMES you're giving up because you can no longer play the marquee teams in your conference at home every season (Duke/Kansas basketball; Oklahoma/Florida State football, etc)?



If you look at the Big East expansion discussion on a Big East message board, the smartest people (arguing against me) all see that:
- adding teams probably gets them two more NCAA bids
- The double-round robin DOES actually hurt their 7-8-9 teams NCAA chances

- Expansion kills the double-round robin, and that's a bad decision for them from an individual revenue standpoint, even if it increases their TV/NCAA checks slightly, the value of guaranteed home games vs everyone in the league is important to them.
