ACC Announces Football Schedule Model for 2023-26

GREENSBORO, NC (theACC.com) – The Atlantic Coast Conference on Tuesday announced a new football scheduling model that will take effect from the 2023 season. The new model is based on a 3-5-5 structure, with each team playing three main opponents annually and playing the other 10 league teams twice during the four-year cycle, once at home and once away. The schedule calls for each team to play all 13 conference opponents home and away at least once during the four-year cycle. The structure was approved today by the league’s athletic directors and faculty athletic representatives.

The new schedule will eliminate the Atlantic and Coastal divisions, with all 14 schools competing in one division beginning in 2023. The top two teams, based on conference win percentage, will compete in the Subway ACC Football Championship Game on the first Saturday of December at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina. In May, the NCAA Division I Council approved deregulation of the current rule, which had limited an individual conference’s autonomy in determining its participants in football championships.

“The future ACC football planning model offers significant improvements for our schools and conferences, the most important being that our student-athletes will have the opportunity to play at each school, both home and away, over a four-year period,” said ACC Commissioner Jim Phillips. PhD “We value the thoughtful discussions within our members, including senior football coaches and sporting directors. In the end, it was clear that this model is in the best interests of our student-athletes, programs and fans at this time.”

A special hour-long edition of The Huddle will air Tuesday at 7 p.m. on ACC Network to discuss the new scheduling format. The show will be hosted by Drew Carter and analyzed by Eric Mac Lain, EJ Manuel and Mark Richt.
