LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- NBC and Notre Dame announced Thursday that they have renewed their football broadcast deal for another decade, and the University of Louisville should come up on the Fighting Irish schedule quickly.

NBC Sports president of programming Jon Miller told The Chicago Tribune that U of L and Notre Dame will play in 2014.

Notre Dame agreed to play five ACC opponents a year beginning next season, so U of L figured to hit the schedule quickly. It may be sooner than later, though, according to Miller, who said it's also possible that some Fighting Irish games could move to prime time.

U of L has been in talks with Notre Dame about a football game in the past, but its move to the ACC looks to be the catalyst that should finally make it happen. Miller did not say whether the game would be played in Louisville or South Bend.
