ACC announces cross-divisional football opponents through 2024

Posted June 4, 2013

Bryn Renner (2) is tackled hard by Thomas Teal (69) during the North Carolina Tar Heels vs. N.C. State Wolfpack NCAA football game, Saturday, October 27, 2012 in Chapel Hill, N.C.

The soon-to-be 14-team Atlantic Coast Conference announced a 12-year football schedule Tuesday that outlines cross-divisional opponents for each school, separate of their primary rivals.

As part of the ACC expansion that welcomes Louisville, Pittsburgh and Syracuse into the conference, each school will play eight conference games per year, six of which will be within their respective division. In addition, each school will play two games against cross-divisional opponents – one against a primary rival annually and one against a rotating opponent.

Each ACC school will play all of their rotating crossover opponents twice during the 12-year rotation, once at home and once on the road, but not consecutively. The divisions will rotate each year as the hosts for the cross-divisional games.

North Carolina and North Carolina State will be primary partners and play annually, rotating home venues. By virtue of being in the same division, the Coastal, UNC and Duke will also play annually. NC State and Duke, however, will play each other only twice in the next 12 years – a meeting in Durham this November and a game in Raleigh in the 2020 season.

Duke and Wake Forest will serve as primary partners. The Demon Deacons will play NC State annually but only matchup against the Tar Heels twice in the next decade – a game in Chapel Hill in 2015 and a game in Winston-Salem in 2022.

As for the newcomers, Louisville will serve as the primary partner for Virginia and Pitt and Syracuse will align themselves across conferences. Among the primary rivals in the old class, Clemson will pair up with Georgia Tech, Florida State and Miami will continue their in-state rivalry and Boston College will match-up with Virginia Tech annually.

    I'm a Duke man and I understand trying to beat State in any sport for some reason just doesn't work well BUT this game is almost ALWAYS close. This is just stupidity at it's best. I was hoping the big 3 would get put in the same division. This game is always exciting to watch. Shame.....

    I was in First Year College and there were not any football players or basketball players in my classes. In fact, I knew kids from High School with 3.5 GPAs who could not get into FYC because it was so competitive and they had to go to other Universities. Newsflash: EVERYONE takes "101" classes their first year in college regardless of their major.

    The thing is State has been punished for cheating in the past and the program has suffered. State has taken their punishment and moved on. UNC is now place in the same catagory as State and your program is now known as cheaters. The difference is a lot of UNC fans are still pointing blame elsewhere, and think UNC did no wrong. State, Clemson, FSU, and now UNC have all cheated.

    You don't have to worry about this changing Dook football any time soon

  • wldudley Jun 5, 2013

    To solve the problem you put Va., Va.Tech, Wake, UNC, Duke, State, & Lou. in one division. FSU, Miami, Ga.Tech, Clemson, BC, Pit, & Syracuse, in the other division. This would put everyone in the division with their main rivals and would eliminate having to play anyone from the other division every year. You could play the teams in the other division every three years. two for two years and three one tear. You would play everyone from the other division on a home and away basis every six years. This would eliminate the nightmare of a schedule that now have.

    It's football, that's all I care about.

    I could not agree more. I doubt anybody at the Big Four gives a rat's patootie about playing Syracuse or Pitt. Heck, we barely care about playing BC...

  • unctarheelman1967 Jun 4, 2013

    this schedule is really sad...the big 4 should play every year; as suggested, put the big 4 in one division and restore the Big East rivalries. What person is doing this? Obviously someone who knows nothing about keep rivalries. TV audiences are gonna suffer cause I could care less about watching these northern teams play each other. Duke and State playing twice in 12 years?? Get real people. College sports rivalries are being completely destroyed...UNREAL UNREAL UNREAL!
