Notre Dame to meet Wake Forest in football

Wake Forest has agreed to play home and away in football with Notre Dame, according to a Wake Forest news release.

Notre Dame will visit Wake Forest on Nov. 5, 2011. Wake Forest will travel to Notre Dame on Nov. 7, 2015.

The teams previously had agreed to a game at Notre Dame on Nov. 17, 2012. The new, two-game agreement is separate from that previous agreement.

“This is an excellent opportunity for our football program to compete against one of the most-storied football programs in the nation,” Wake Forest athletic director Ron Wellman said in a statement released by the school. “Notre Dame has long been recognized for its excellence both academically and athletically and we expect that our fans will thoroughly enjoy having the Fighting Irish come to BB&T Field.”
