At Notre Dame, the football schedule is always one that takes the team from coast to coast, playing in all parts of the country. The 2016 schedule is no exception, as the Irish go to the west, southwest, southeast and northeast as well as playing their home games in the Midwest.
In accordance with its ACC agreement, Notre Dame will battle five teams from the conference. The Irish also will play three teams that are annually on their schedule. In addition, the Irish will welcome the return of a traditional foe to the schedule after a two-year absence.
