As conferences continue to discuss future scheduling and alignment decisions, the ACC has made a significant announcement about its formats. It will eliminate divisions and the top 2 teams by winning percentage will advance to the conference title game.

The new football scheduling model will go into effect beginning with the 2023 season. The new model is based on a 3-5-5 structure whereby each team will play 3 primary opponents annually and face the other 10 league teams twice during the four-year cycle, once at home and once on the road. The schedule allows for each team to face all 13 conference opponents home and away at least once during the four-year cycle. The structure was adopted on Tuesday by the league’s athletic directors and faculty athletic representatives.

Here are the 3 primary scheduling partners for each school:

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