Notre Dame vs Duke: Fighting Irish play first ACC football game

South BEND, Ind. – From the later empty pregame parking lot to the socially distorted singing of Alma Mater’s singing, it was unusual on Saturday at Notre Dame. But it is going to be football life everywhere in America in 2020. There were two unique words about the fighting Irish season opener:

• The “ACC” logo is depicted on the area at each 25-yard line.

• In-game announcement that Brian Kelly and the school have agreed to a contract extension through the 2024 season.
