Notre Dame Saves the NC State-UNC Rivalry

When the ACC added Syracuse and Pittsburgh, it announced some changes to the basketball schedule, including a move to just one "primary partner" for each school. Wake Forest was designated as State's primary partner, meaning those schools would be guaranteed a home-and-home each year, but the Pack might not get two games against UNC each year.

Well, forget about all of that. Notre Dame's addition will make for additional tweaks, and now the ACC will likely go back to two permanent partners. Which of course means...

That's great news for NC State, and it makes this whole expansion business a bit less painful. So thanks, Irish, you indirectly helped preserve some Tobacco Road tradition. You guys are all right.
