Miami and Notre Dame discontinued their (mostly) annual series after things got heated during the 1980s. After Miami lost in South Bend in 1990, the two teams didn’t play again until meeting in the 2010 Sun Bowl.

Since then, the two teams have played twice — once in the 2012 Shamrock Series game at Soldier Field in Chicago and again, in South Bend, last season.

Miami hasn’t beaten the Irish since a 27-10 victory in the Orange Bowl in 1989 knocked Notre Dame from atop the polls and helped the Hurricanes win their third national title in the 1990 Sugar Bowl.

The two teams meet in South Florida for the first time since that 1989 game on Nov. 11 at Hard Rock Stadium.

University of Notre Dame football games against Atlantic Coast Conference opponents from the 2026 season through the 2037 campaign are now official.

Notre Dame and the ACC today announced 60 additional games (30 home, 30 away) between the Irish and ACC programs — with Notre Dame slated to continue to play five contests per season against league members.

The 30 home dates at Notre Dame Stadium feature two games each against 12 teams and three each against Florida State and Miami. The 30 road games include two each against a dozen opponents and three each at Clemson and Louisville.

The 12-year slate includes two Labor Day night road contests — Aug. 30, 2031, at Clemson and Sept. 1, 2036, at Virginia Tech.
