The ACC revealed its full 2021 college football schedule Thursday featuring a return to the normal format of eight conference games and four nonconference games:
Notre Dame will return to being an independent after competing as an ACC school in 2020, per Andrea Adelson of ESPN. The team will play five ACC teams as previously agreed, although no games will come against conference favorite Clemson.
The Fighting Irish have games against Florida State, Virginia Tech, North Carolina, Virginia and Georgia Tech.
Notre Dame reached the ACC Championship Game in 2020 after going undefeated during the regular season but suffered a 34-10 loss to Clemson, which avenged its earlier defeat to the Fighting Irish.
