The ACC released a schedule Tuesday for rotating crossover conference opponents in football. The announcement completes the schedule for league teams from 2014 through the 2024 season.
North Carolina (Coastal Division) and N.C. State (Atlantic Division) will remain each others’ primary divisional crossover opponents, meaning the Tar Heels and Wolfpack will continue to play each other each season. Duke (Coastal) and Wake Forest (Atlantic) also remain primary crossover opponents.
The Atlantic and Coastal divisions each will have seven teams when Louisville joins the Atlantic in 2014. Pittsburgh (Coastal) and Syracuse (Atlantic) begin ACC play this fall.
Each ACC team will play eight conference games annually, four at home and four on the road in addition to playing three home divisional games and three on the road. Each team also plays one home cross divisional game and one road cross divisional game.
N.C. State plays at Duke this season, but won’t face the Blue Devils again until 2020. North Carolina hosts Wake Forest in 2015 and won’t play them again until 2022.
North Carolina’s other crossover opponent in 2014 is Clemson while N.C. State has Georgia Tech and Duke is scheduled to meet Syracuse.
