On Thursday the ACC announced additional matchups in football between its member institutions and its friend-with-benefits, Notre Dame. Previously the ACC-Notre Dame matchups had been set through 2026; now they’re set through 2037. The future!
What we already knew: NC State travels to South Bend this season, hosts the Irish in 2023, and visits Notre Dame again in 2025.
NC State hosts Notre Dame in 2029 and 2035. NC State plays at Notre Dame in 2031 and 2037. Assuming of course there is still a functional planet on which to play these games and that football is still a sport that people play. (Honestly I kinda hope it isn’t. A sport people play, I mean. I do very much hope the planet is still functional.)
So I guess, just put these dates on your planner. Sure it might be a tad optimistic to commit to taking a road trip that won’t happen for 20 years, but I believe in you. Exercise regularly and take care of your diet and you’ll be there in no time.
