Wake Forest and Notre Dame will play three times in a five-year period beginning in 2011 with a visit from the Fighting Irish.

Officials at Wake Forest said Monday the Demon Deacons will host Notre Dame on Nov. 5, 2011, and will visit the Fighting Irish in 2015. That's in addition to a single meeting that previously had been announced for 2012 in South Bend, Ind.

Wake Forest athletic director Ron Wellman says the series provides "an excellent opportunity for our football program to compete against one of the most-storied football programs in the nation."
