Jeffrey Fann asks the question and says that the ACC should try it "to ensure quality Out of Conference games for the ACC teams." My view: I don't see getting quality out-of-conference games being a problem. If the ACC has had an issue in this area in recent years, it is that it plays more quality out-of-conference games than some other conferences and gets no reward for it. If the new playoff setup guarantees that out-of-conference or overall schedule strength will be a major component and can find a way to reasonably measure teams that lose to good opponents against teams that just beat up on weak opponents, then maybe this is a good idea. But in the current system, the incentives really are not there for the ACC to make its non-conference schedule even tougher.
