(ISN) – NOTRE DAME, Ind. – Nearly every University of Notre Dame men’s lacrosse game during the 2015 regular season will be available to watch on TV or the Internet. Six contests are slated for TV, while three games are scheduled to be streamed online.

Notre Dame’s first two home dates against Georgetown (Feb. 14) and Dartmouth (Feb. 28) will be streamed on ESPN3 if those contests take place outside at Arlotta Stadium.

The Fighting Irish will appear on ESPNU five times during the regular season beginning March 14 with the Atlantic Coast Conference opener at Virginia. A home tilt against Ohio State on March 21 also will be broadcast on ESPNU. Home showdowns against ACC rivals Syracuse (March 28) and North Carolina (April 18) are slated for ESPNU, as is the conference affair at Duke (April 4).

ESPN3 will carry Notre Dame’s home clash with Marquette (April 7), while CBS Sports Network will broadcast the regular-season finale at Army (May 2).

All three games of the 2015 ACC Men’s Lacrosse Championship will air on ESPNU. The tournament is scheduled for April 24 and 26 at PPL Park in Chester, Pa.

The Fighting Irish are ranked No. 2 in the Inside Lacrosse and United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) preseason polls. The other four ACC schools also appear in the top 10 of those rankings. Duke is No. 3/3, followed by No. 4/4 Syracuse, No. 5/6 North Carolina and No. 9/9 Virginia. Notre Dame’s non-conference foe Denver tops both polls, while another non-league opponent, Army, is No. 20 in both rankings.

Notre Dame is the defending ACC champion. The Fighting Irish posted a 12-6 record last season and advanced to Championship Weekend for the third time in the last five years before falling to Duke, 11-9, in the national title game at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore.
