new football scheduling model
GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — The Atlantic Coast Conference has launched a football scheduling model for the arrival of Pittsburgh and Syracuse this fall.
The league says each ACC team will play an eight-game schedule, with six coming within its division. Of the two cross-divisional games, one will be against the same scheduling partner every season and the other will rotate every year.
The Atlantic Division members will host their primary partners from the Coastal Division this fall, while the Coastal teams will host games with their rotating cross-divisional opponents. As a result, six games will return to the same site as last year’s matchup.
Pittsburgh heads to the Coastal, Syracuse to the Atlantic and the two will play every year as primary partners in the 14-team league.
The ACC releases team schedules next month.
