Notre Dame gets Western Michigan for its non-ACC game on Sept. 19

The ACC released its revised 2020 football schedule on Thursday and Notre Dame’s one nonconference game is against Western Michigan.

The Fighting Irish and Broncos will meet Sept. 19 in South Bend, Ind.; game time has not been determined.

Last week, it was announced that Notre Dame would play a 10-game ACC schedule this season, and that all ACC teams would play one nonconference game.

Only Clemson and North Carolina have not determined nonconference opponents. All other ACC nonconference foes are listed below.

Notre Dame opens its season against visiting Duke on Sept. 12 and won’t face Navy for the first time in more than nine decades.

The Fighting Irish and Midshipmen were originally scheduled to play for the 94th straight season in Dublin, Ireland. The pandemic forced the relocation to Navy’s home field in Annapolis, Maryland, for the first time in the history of the series on Sept. 5, along with the cancellation of Notre Dame’s games against Wisconsin, Stanford and Southern California as the Big Ten and Pac-12 went to league-only schedules.

Notre Dame, a member in all other league sports, already had a scheduling agreement to annually play five or six games with ACC teams as an independent.

Notre Dame’s marquee matchup at home against Clemson remains in its originally scheduled Nov. 7 slot.
