Notre Dame will now join fellow former BigEast members Boston College, Miami, and Virginia Tech in the ACC. Syracuse, Pittsburgh, and Louisville (next season) are also making the jump to the ACC. Meanwhile, the hockey team has also shifted to become a member of Hockey East, leaving the CCHA (Central Collegiate Hockey Association).

Football has entered into its own agreement with the ACC to play five schools a season. This will lead to a much anticipated first ever matchup between Notre Dame and Virginia Tech. Meanwhile, for men's basketball the ACC has now undoubtedly become the premier basketball conference. Annual match ups will include Syracuse, Louisville, North Carolina, and Duke.
