Series history—Notre Dame leads the all-time series 4-2.
No. 18 North Carolina kicks off a 2020 season that’s loaded with big expectations with a home game against Syracuse on Saturday. This Tar Heels-Orange showdown will serve as the first ACC game of the campaign. It’s the beginning of a season unlike any other in the league, with 15 teams playing in one division, a 10-game conference schedule and with Notre Dame as a full member.
It’s the second time these two teams have ever met as conference opponents, a result of their cross-division relationship, with the Orange winning the 2018 meeting 40-37 in triple overtime.
But the rare meeting of Atlantic and Coastal teams isn’t the only result of the adjustments that have been made to allow for college football to happen this fall.
The game will be played without fans in the stands and with rigorous third party COVID-19 testing for both teams before and after the game. Football may be back, but it is not without acknowledgement of the challenges associated with pulling it off.
North Carolina: This program has come a long way in 12 months. At the start of the 2019 season, Mack Brown’s return to Chapel Hill was celebrated as more of a topic of intrigue than national relevance.
The Tar Heels were staring down a difficult schedule that included Clemson in the cross-division rotation and had oddsmakers projecting between four and five wins on the season. But then they opened with wins against South Carolina and Miami,
came a two-point try short of upsetting Clemson and quarterback Sam Howell emerged as one of the top freshman in the country. No longer a topic of intrigue or novelty in college football, Brown’s return was proven to be among the most significant developments in ACC football.
After playing 1,277 without any conference affiliations, Notre Dame gets a full ACC schedule this season and the possibility of reaching the conference championship, while the other 14 ACC members will each receive a slice of the Fighting Irish’s broadcasting deal with NBC which will top up their revenue from ESPN and the ACC Network.
It remains to be seen whether Notre Dame’s membership of the ACC will be extended beyond this most unprecedented of seasons or whether the Fighting Irish will revert to an independent schedule next year, but coach Brian Kelly is determined to make the most of the unusual arrangement.
