Irish look to ACC to fill football schedule

The Associated Press is reporting that Atlantic Coast Conference presidents are likely to delay voting on a football schedule for this fall.

The vote was expected today, and the schools are said to be considering either ten game or eight game league schedues, with one non-conference game for each team.

Notre Dame could become a full ACC member for the 2020 season only, if financial considerations can be worked out.

The vote on scheduling is likely to come after an NCAA board of Governors meeting on Tuesday next week.

Notre Dame currently has three openings in its schedule, after Wisconsin, USC, and Stanford dropped off when their conferences went to conference-only schedules for this fall.

ACC teams not already on the Irish schedule are considered likely to fill those slots.
