TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Notre Dame's game at Arizona State in 2014 will take place after all.

The schools announced on Tuesday that they had struck a deal to play the game on Nov. 8, two weeks later than scheduled, after the Fighting Irish's move to the Atlantic Coast Conference put it in jeopardy of being cancelled.

A game between the Sun Devils and Irish scheduled for 2017 in South Bend, Ind., has been cancelled. This season's game, Oct. 5 at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, was struck under a separate deal.

``We're pleased that Notre Dame was able to resolve its scheduling issues in a way that allows it to play at Sun Devil Stadium in 2014,'' ASU Athletics Director Steve Patterson said in a statement.

``Our entire Sun Devil family- season ticket holders, fans, students, alumni - and our entire community here in the Valley have been looking forward to playing Notre Dame in Tempe since the original agreement was signed in 2008.''

Notre Dame told Arizona State officials in April that it did not want to play the 2014 game because the Irish must start playing five ACC teams per season that year. Arizona State also learned later that the Irish did not want to play the 2017 game as well.

Arizona State officials fought to keep the game on the schedule because it didn't believe Notre Dame had the legal right to back out, but also because it was going to be the Sun Devils' biggest home game of the season, possibly in years.

With the help of the Pac-12, which allowed Arizona State to make the change in date, the two schools were able to work out a deal to keep the game on the schedule.

``These are exciting times for our football program and having a special opponent like Notre Dame travel to ASU will make for another memorable experience,'' Patterson said.
