ACC commissioner John Swofford said Friday the scheduling arrangement with Notre Dame for the 2020 football season is a win-win for both the Irish and the league, but he added that it is only a temporary deal.

On Wednesday, the ACC announced a 10-plus-1 scheduling model in which Notre Dame, an FBS independent, will play a full league schedule for the first time in its history and be eligible for the ACC championship game. In his first comments since the schedule was announced, Swofford told Packer & Durham on the ACC Network that he and Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick started discussing the possibility that the Irish would play a full ACC schedule about a month ago.

Notre Dame already had a scheduling partnership with the ACC that facilitated the talks and is an ACC member in all other sports except men's hockey.
