Notre Dame will join the Atlantic Coast Conference as a full member with the exception of football, but will play five football games annually against ACC teams, industry sources told ESPN's Brett McMurphy.
The Irish will join the ACC as soon as it can exit the Big East.
The Big East currently requires members to provide 27 months notice to exit although West Virginia, Pittsburgh and Syracuse were able to leave earlier by paying a higher exit fee.
basically its a similar deal to what they have with the Big East.
this is a huge loss for the them.
expect them to beg BYU to join now.
