BLUE & GOLD ILLUSTRATED 2020 FOOTBALL PREVIEW ✦ 17 UNDER THE DOME However, in a year of vigilant "social dis- tancing," attendance numbers are less rel- evant than ever. This especially applies to the Shamrock Series meeting with Wisconsin. What Notre Dame does want to remain as a constant is representation on the schedule with at least four of the Power Five conferences. The ACC and Pac-12 are always ac- counted for, although as noted, the Pac-12 could get dicey this year. Representing the Big Ten in 2020-21 would be Wisconsin, while Ohio State (2022-23), Purdue (2021, 2024-28) and Michigan State (2026-27) will be on future dockets in this decade. Michigan (2018-19) and Northwestern (2014 and 2018) were more recent, with the Wolverines returning in 2033-34. The SEC is becoming more present as well, with Georgia (2017 and 2019) and Vanderbilt (2018) the past three years. This decade the league so far includes Arkansas (2020 and 2025), Texas A&M (2024-25) and Alabama (2028-29). That leaves the Big 12 as the void, al- though the league's two top programs, Oklahoma (2012-13) and Texas (2015-16), did face off with the Irish in the previous decade. The Mid-American Conference has had a representative on Notre Dame's schedule every year since 2017, and will continue that pattern, with Western Michigan (2020), To- ledo (2021), Marshall (2022) and Northern Illinois (2024) so far officially signed.
