Big news set to be announced in both South Bend, Ind. and Chapel Hill, N.C at 12:30 p.m. ET. Notre Dane will be joining the ACC as a full member for all sports but football. However, they have agreed to play five games per year versus ACC competition.
We’ll have more later, but consider this an open thread for this exciting news for the ACC.
UPDATE: Via Notre Dame, here’s the press release announcing the move. Also, as noted in the comments, the exit fee has also been increased to $50M. As a side note, it will also continue to increase over time, since the figure is set at “three times the operating budget.” The vote for this increase was not unanimous, as it’s being reported that both Florida State and Maryland voted against the move.
