Notes On Notre Dame And The ACC

Sept. 12, 2012

Baseball Coach Danny Hall
“Notre Dame is a great addition to what is already one of the premier conferences in the country for baseball. They have a rich baseball tradition and it will be exciting to have them in the ACC.”

Women’s Tennis Coach Rodney Harmon
“Notre Dame is a great addition to the ACC. They are a first-class institution and have a great tradition in women’s tennis. They will make conference play that much tougher. The ACC is arguably the deepest women’s tennis conference in the country now.”

Football – Georgia Tech and Notre Dame have a long and storied series history in football… The two teams have met 34 times on the gridiron with the Fighting Irish owning a 27-6-1 series advantage… Tech won the last meeting, 33-3, in 2007 in South Bend… The two teams first met in 1922 and have met every decade since… In the movie, Rudy, the Notre Dame walk-on sees his first and only action in a game against Georgia Tech… Running back Dorsey Levens was a standout at Georgia Tech before transferring and having success at Notre Dame.

Men’s Basketball – Georgia Tech has won six out of the eight all-time meetings on the hardwood including a streak of four straight wins… the last meeting was a 70-69 Yellow Jacket victory on Nov. 19, 2007 in the Paradise Jam, in the Virgin Islands… the two teams first met on the hardwood in 1941.

Women’s Basketball – Tech has played Notre Dame just once previously, a 76-69 loss to the Irish in Atlanta on Nov. 29, 1996.

Baseball – Georgia Tech has won six of the 10 all-time meetings… the two teams haven’t met on the diamond since the Yellow Jackets swept a two-game series in Atlanta in 1996… the Yellow Jackets and Irish have never played previously in South Bend.
