The University of Notre Dame men's lacrosse program and Baumer Family Head Men's Lacrosse Coach Kevin Corrigan released the 2018 schedule, a 12-game slate that features seven games at Arlotta Stadium and Loftus Sports Center.
"We're thrilled to play one of the best schedules in the country again this year," said Corrigan. "Between our always-tough conference games and the most difficult non-conference schedule around, we will need to compete at our highest level week in and week out. We love that challenge and look forward to the 2018 season."
The Irish have reached eight consecutive NCAA Championship quarterfinals entering the 2018 campaign. Notre Dame is set to return 16 monogram winners, including six starters and seven of its top eight point leaders from the 2017 roster.
NATIONAL NETWORK EXPOSURE
The Irish are scheduled to be on national TV five times during the 2018 regular season, as ESPNU will air Notre Dame's games against Denver (March 10), Virginia (March 18), Syracuse (March 31), Duke (April 7) and North Carolina (April 21). Both the ACC semifinal games (April 27) and the ACC title game (April 29) also will be broadcast on ESPNU.
FRONT-LOADED HOME SLATE
Five of the first six games of the regular-season schedule will take place at Notre Dame. The Irish open the 2018 season with two home contests against Detroit (Feb. 11) and Richmond (Feb. 24). Notre Dame then has a pivotal three-game homestand against Denver (March 10), Virginia (March 17) and Michigan (March 21).
