Notre Dame-Wake Forest game in 2020 moving to Charlotte

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Wake Forest's game against Notre Dame in 2020 is moving to Charlotte.

Officials from Wake Forest and the Charlotte Sports Foundation announced the matchup Wednesday.

The Fighting Irish play an average of five Atlantic Coast Conference opponents each season as part of its scheduling arrangement with the league. Notre Dame is an ACC member for all other sports the league sponsors.

The ACC in 2014 released a list of all matchups between its members and Notre Dame from 2015-2025, and that schedule had the Demon Deacons visiting Notre Dame in 2017 and playing host to the Fighting Irish in 2018 and 2020.

Wake Forest athletic director Ron Wellman says the school has a strong alumni base in Charlotte.
