2020 Notre Dame Football Schedule Announced

August 6, 2020

The ACC conference schedule is out and that means Notre Dame has opponents and dates of games for the 2020 football season. 

As previously reported, Notre Dame will play 10 ACC games this year and the Irish will be eligible for the ACC Championship Game in 2020. The ACC will determine who plays in the ACC Championship Game by winning percentage. 

Here’s a look at the schedule. 

Date Opponent Location Time
Sept. 12 Duke Notre Dame TBD
Sept. 19 Western Michigan Notre Dame TBD
Sept. 26 Wake Forest Charlotte TBD
Oct. 10 Florida State Notre Dame TBD
Oct. 17 Louisville Notre Dame TBD
Oct. 24 Pittsburgh Pittsburgh TBD
Oct. 31 Georgia Tech Georgia Tech TBD
Nov. 7 Clemson Notre Dame TBD
Nov. 14 Boston College Boston College TBD
Nov. 27 North Carolina North Carolina TBD
Dec. 5 Syracuse Notre Dame  TBD

Western Michigan will be the non-conference game and that means Navy will not play Notre Dame after 93 straight seasons. 

The Clemson game will stay the same as the Tigers will head to a somewhat cold South Bend the first week of November. 

A trip to North Carolina will be interesting as Notre Dame will play the Tar Heels on a Friday, but it’s the day after Thanksgiving. The good news: Notre Dame will have a bye week before the North Carolina trip, but keep in mind, bye weeks could potentially be used to make up games as well. 

Looking at the big picture, Clemson lost its bye week before Notre Dame as they will host Boston College. Clemson will also travel to Virginia Tech on December 5th, which could be interesting from a weather standpoint.
