All of Notre Dame’s home contests are set to be either televised on the ACC Network, ESPNU or streamed live via ACC Network Extra.

Last week, juniors Charley Niego and Zoe Nunez were named to the 2020 Preseason All-ACC Volleyball Team while the Irish were selected fourth in the ACC Preseason Coaches Poll. Notre Dame is coming off of a 2019 season in which it went 19-10 and returned to the NCAA Tournament for the second time in three years.
Four returning Irish earned All-ACC accolades a season ago, including Niego (First Team), Nunez (First Team), junior Sydney Bent (Second Team) and sophomore Caroline Meuth (Second Team, Freshman Team).
