Some quick Notre Dame scheduling notes:
Notre Dame will play five ACC opponents a year and will rotate through the league. Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick said the plan is to start in 2014. The school will give the ACC five open dates and the league will fill the dates as part of its formation of the league schedule.
The tentative plan is to have Notre Dame play each school every three years, home and road.
In 2014, Tech is scheduled to play Wofford, at Tulane and at Georgia out of conference. In 2015, there are three home games with Georgia Southern, Tulane and Georgia. In 2016, Tech has Vanderbilt at home, Georgia on the road and an open date.
Contracts with schools can always be bought out or pushed back.
This puts a slight crimp into Tech’s scheduling philosophy of scheduling one FCS opponent and one FBS opponent from a non-automatic qualifier conference, although the 2016 schedule, for instance, already goes against that strategy.
