ACC Football Format

In football, the ACC is divided into two divisions referred to as “Atlantic” and “Coastal” though these have no geographic basis for the distinction. They are the only NCAA Division I conference who do not divide teams geographically. The structure currently functions as follows. 

  • Six games for each division. (Each consists of three home games and three away)
  • A game against a “permanent rival” which is a team from the other division. These match-ups are always the same and are as follows (Atlantic Division teams listed first). 
    • Boston College & Virginia Tech
    • Clemson University & Georgia Tech
    • Florida State University & University of Miami
    • University of Louisville & University of Virginia
    • North Carolina State University & University of North Carolina 
    • Syracuse University & University of Pittsburgh
    • Wake Forest University & Duke University
  • A cross-division rotating game. In addition to the permanent cross-division game, there is also another rotating game. These opponents will only face each other twice in 12 years. 
  • Finally, there are four non-conference games. One of these games is against Notre Dame as they are not technically a part of the ACC football division. They play five ACC opponents each season. Also, ACC members are required to play a game against any team in the Power 5 conferences. (Notre Dame counts here.)
