DURHAM, N.C. – Duke’s football series with Notre Dame, part of an ongoing agreement with the ACC, has been extended through the 2035 season. The league office announced on Thursday the conference’s slate of contests with the Fighting Irish through 2037.
Gridiron tilts between Duke and Notre Dame will take place in 2027 (Durham), 2030 (South Bend), 2033 (Durham) and 2035 (South Bend). Games pitting the Blue Devils and Fighting Irish previously announced are set for 2019 (Durham), 2020 (South Bend) and 2023 (Durham).
The agreement continues a partnership that began in 2014, in which the ACC’s 14 football member schools play the Fighting Irish an average of five times per year. By the end of the 2037 season, Notre Dame will have played 120 games against ACC opponents, beginning with the 2014 football season.
Duke and Notre Dame have met five times with the Fighting Irish holding an all-time series advantage, 3-2. The two teams squared off in 1958 (Notre Dame, 9-7), 1961 (Duke, 37-13), 1966 (Notre Dame, 64-0), 2007 (Notre Dame, 28-7) and 2016 (Duke, 38-35).
