Until and unless ND starts to replace football games with USC, Stanford, Navy, Michigan State, Purdue, Texas, Arkansas, and Georgia with games featuring MAC, Sun Belt, or CUSA schools it's not in ND's or the ACC's financial interest to substitute ND and Navy with ND/Wake Forest, or ND and Stanford for ND/UVa. Their prime value to the ACC is as a network hook in states that otherwise would only watch BTN - the bait on the hook is better with the three national games, unless and until Navy, USC, Stanford or Michigan State join the ACC. ;

It certainly was noticeable something different was taking place because of the lighting and distance to stands. From a critical standpoint it wasn't great tv but I watched for the novelty.

I was meaning the viewership, so the facts don't lie.

There's nothing wrong with a Texas Florida St game, I just think fanbases care more about teams they know.

Surprised Notre Dame is playing in the state of Arkansas, but thrilled this is a series.

Nebraska-Kentucky sounds like it would be a stunt to keep people subscribed to the Big 10 and SEC Networks, especially if there were a basketball series involved.. Or perhaps CBS could arrange a home/home football series just to be able to show a Nebraska football game.

Notre Dame has also never had a game against Auburn. That would be a great series if they could ever get that arranged.

Other opponents that I would love to see the Irish eventually schedule home/homes with: Alabama, Florida, Nebraska, Oregon, Wisconsin. They have not had a regular season game with any of these programs in a very long time.

Southern recruiting, the same reason that ND is happy to play five ACC schools a year and play Georgia, Texas A&M, Texas, Oklahoma, etc...

ND has made a great effort the past seven years or so to play more often in the South.

How many players from Arkansas have been on the Irish football roster in the past 5 years?? Not even starters, just on the roster. Guessing few

There have been a few.

Point being, ND wants to recruit better in the south. It is scheduling more games there the past few years for that purpose in mind.

Minnesota has two star running backs from Georgia. Don't recall if it has played a regular season game in the state in the last couple decades, but I don't think it has. None coming up either. It does have a game at Mississippi St in 2027.

I just don't buy the thought process that one gains any noticeable recruiting advantage with a player because of the chance to play at an opposing team's stadium that is within a few hours drive of his hometown. YMMV

The Big Ten and SEC have so many bowls where they play each other, Neb and Ky are bound to meet in a bowl one of these years
