The ACC is dropping division play after this year and going to a 3-5-5 format (3 permanent annual opponents, and playing the other 10 teams every other year).


The ACC became the latest conference to scrap divisions in favor of a new scheduling format Tuesday, making 2022 the final year of the Atlantic and Coastal divisions.

Starting in 2023, the league announced it will move to a 3-5-5 format, in which each team has three permanent rivalry games played annually, with the other 10 opponents rotating on an every-other-year basis.

ACC's Permanent Rivalries In 2023​

Boston College: Miami, Pitt, Syracuse
Clemson: FSU, Georgia Tech, NC State
Duke: UNC, NC State, Wake Forest
Florida State: Clemson, Miami, Syracuse
Georgia Tech: Clemson, Louisville, Wake Forest
Louisville: Georgia Tech, Miami, Virginia
Miami: BC, FSU, Louisville
North Carolina: Duke, NC State, Virginia
NC State: Clemson, Duke, UNC
Pitt: BC, Syracuse, Virginia Tech
Syracuse: BC, FSU, Pitt
Virginia: Louisville, UNC, Virginia Tech
Virginia Tech: Pitt, Virginia, Wake Forest
Wake Forest: Duke, Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech

Don't like who they gave Ga Tech for permanent opponents. While Clempson makes sense, neither Louisville or Wake Forest are traditional opponents. Really should have given us FSU to go with Clempson.

I'm thinking they will stay where they are for another year (at least) and see what happens, does another Conference form with Clemson the main cog.
ND ... Who knows ....
Clemson, Miami, Florida to the SEC.

I don’t see Miami to the sec. Doesn’t fit. Clemson and FSU (which I assume you meant, since Florida is already there) do.


Id guess those two and someone like Ga tech(former member). Maybe Va tech (Doubtful). Possibly NC. Maybe NC and Duke to make it 20.

The “grant of rights” TV deal, which runs for more than another decade, makes moving out of the ACC is for it to dissolve.

While I'd love to see Ga Tech go back into the SEC, I don't see it happening as they already have the Atlanta market. The only way I see it happening is if the SEC does it to prevent the Big Ten from getting Ga Tech.

I agree that Miami doesn't fit, as the SEC is pretty much flagship State universities with the exception of Vanderbilt. For the same reason I don't see them going after Duke. UNC though is a different story (who happens to also be on the Big Ten want list).

Clempson and FSU would be ideal pickups for the SEC, and are not considered to be wanted by the Big Ten (who prefer academic schools).

The SEC doesn’t care about basketball schools, only football. They don’t want Duke or UNC.

I wonder if the ACC follows the Big East model and drops football.

Missouri wasn't exactly a football school.

North Carolina would be a big win for the SEC as it get's them in that State.

Doubtful, as they still have several traditional football schools in the conference.

Kentucky says hey!

Lol

The sec is the premier football conference for sure, but look at the past decade. They are strong in college basketball, those two teams would be a boon for that sport, plus getting them another state market.


I say both as I don’t see one going without the other.

College football is king, everything else is just a sideshow.

No doubt it’s THE sport.
I can see college football becoming the minor leagues of the NFL. A 30 team league of the top schools that was the core of the BCS. All the other “smaller” football schools become what was division 1a.
