The Fighting Irish notified the Wolverines that they are exercising a three-year out in their series contract, meaning the last meeting between the historic rivals will occur in 2014.

Through a Freedom of Information Act request, The Associated Press obtained a letter Tuesday from Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick to Michigan AD David Brandon, canceling the games from 2015 to 2017.

Shamrock Series bridges past and future and will continue

Different venue, very different uniforms -- but a familiar foe nonetheless

No. 9 Notre Dame's 25th meeting Saturday with Miami will put a new twist on one of the sport's most intense rivalries, as it's the fourth installment of the Irish's "Shamrock Series" -- when the school takes one home game to a major city and presents a taste of 21st-century life to a historic program.

Soldier Field is the venue of choice for the Irish this season, following the Alamodome, Yankee Stadium and FedEx Field. Athletic director Jack Swarbrick said at the team's preseason media day Aug. 16 that the annual off-site home game is in the cards through at least the 2016 season, with sites but not opponents nailed down. Next year's will feature Arizona State at Cowboys Stadium.

ACC decides to keep 8-game conference schedule for football

[Image: ACCChampgame.png]
As a partial ACC member, Notre Dame will play five football games a year against ACC teams, while retaining as much of their traditional independent rivalries as possible. Per the exit policies for the Big East, the conference Notre Dame houses the rest of its sports, the Fighting Irish wouldn't be eligible to begin competition in the ACC until 2015. If a $5 million buyout is paid to the Big East before that time, though, Notre Dame can make the switch at any time.

Many believe the buyout could be paid before next school year.

FSU keeps partnerships with Clemson and Miami. The Hurricanes will use FSU and Virginia Tech as their primary partners. Two meetings per season -- one at home and one away -- with the teams in those partnerships will be guaranteed. The rest of the 14 non-conference games -- the ACC announced earlier this year it will be moving next year from a 16-game conference schedule to 18 games -- will feature home and away games with two rotating opponents, and five home-only games and and five road-only games. The current primary crossover partners will remain consistent with Syracuse and Pitt becoming primary crossover partners with each other.

Atlantic Division
Boston College Eagles
Clemson Tigers
Florida St. Seminoles
Maryland Terrapins
N.C. State Wolfpack
Syracuse Orange
Wake Forest Demon Deacons

Coastal Division
Duke Blue Devils
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
Miami Hurricanes
North Carolina Tar Heels
Pittsburgh Panthers
Virginia Cavaliers
Virginia Tech Hokies

New ACC schedule format partners for BC, Notre Dame, and Syracuse

Men's and Women's Basketball
The ACC will continue to play an 18-game conference schedule with the addition of Notre Dame. The scheduling model will be based on a two-partner format.

Each year, teams will play every league opponent at least once with the two partners playing home and away annually. In addition to the four annual games against partners, the remaining 14 conference games will feature home and away games with two rotating opponents and five home-only games and five road-only games.

The two-primary-partner format preserves competitive balance and builds upon traditional rivalries while providing the opportunity to create new ones.

Boston College - Notre Dame and Syracuse
Clemson - Florida State and Georgia Tech
Duke - North Carolina and Wake Forest
Florida State - Clemson and Miami
Georgia Tech - Clemson and Notre Dame
Maryland - Pitt and Virginia
Miami - Florida State and Virginia Tech
North Carolina - Duke and NC State
NC State - North Carolina and Wake Forest
Notre Dame - Boston College and Georgia Tech
Pitt - Maryland and Syracuse
Syracuse - Boston College and Pitt
Virginia - Maryland and Virginia Tech
Virginia Tech - Miami and Virginia
Wake Forest - Duke and NC State

Following the regular season, the ACC Tournament format will continue to feature all league members. The Tournament will begin with three games on Wednesday, followed by four games on Thursday and Friday, two semifinals on Saturday and the championship game on Sunday. The top four seeds will continue to receive byes into Friday's quarterfinal round.

The conference announced a change that will feature only 10 teams in a six-day, double-elimination tournament at season's end. Two single-elimination games on Saturday and the championship game on Sunday will round out that tournament.

Big East schism muddies Irish move to ACC
[Image: Presentation132_opt1.jpg]

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Notre Dame's athletic director says the recently announced split between the Big East and seven schools that don't play major college football could complicate the Fighting Irish's exit from the conference.

"Those two parties have to divide assets," Jack Swarbrick told reporters Monday. "It poses a question about who you're even talking to. Who is the Big East? Which of the two sides of that has the Big East name and rights, and who might lay claim to the Notre Dame affiliation going forward? It's an interesting dynamic to try and figure out where all that's headed. One of the real challenges we have right now is trying to assess when that might settle out."

Notre Dame, Big East reach deal;
Irish to join ACC in July

[Image: cbssportsndaccnow.jpg]

Notre Dame and the Big East reached an agreement Tuesday morning that allows the Irish to leave the league on July 1, 2013.

This paves the way for their expedited move to the Atlantic Coast Conference, where they will begin competing this fall.

"Notre Dame now looks forward with great anticipation to becoming a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference," Notre Dame vice president and director of athletics Jack Swarbrick said in a statement. "We are thrilled to join a great group of institutions who share our commitment to the integration of athletics into the academic mission of the university. Our coaches and student-athletes across our athletic programs are truly excited about the new challenges ahead."

Notre Dame is coming to the ACC early;
football arrangement still won't start until 2014

[Image: 1041122047001_2221424843001_3-12-ACC-NOW-THUMB.jpg]

Notre Dame will become an official partial member of the ACC on July 1 this year after coming to an agreement to leave the fractured Big East. The decision was described by the league as "amicable."

That means the ACC will welcome Pittsburgh, Syracuse and Notre Dame this year, making it a 15-team league for most sports.


ACC commissioner John Swofford released this statement about today's news:

“Our conference, schools and fans are delighted that Notre Dame will join the ACC on July 1, 2013. The addition of Notre Dame, Pitt and Syracuse, followed by Louisville in 2014, positions us extremely well with an outstanding collection of 15 member institutions.

“As was previously announced, our annual five games against Notre Dame in football will begin with the 2014 season. This not only will enhance our league’s already ambitious football schedules but also will provide terrific fan excitement.

Clarifying Notre Dame's ACC football arrangement
[Image: notre-dame-helmet-statue.jpg]

Big news now that Notre Dame's move to the ACC will take place on July 1, but this will have little impact on football this fall. Since I've been getting plenty of questions about it, here's a quick refresher course for what this means on the gridiron:
