The 13 ACC games that actually matter.

Atlantic: (7)

BC @ USC

Clemson vs GA

Clemson @ USCe

FSU @ FL

MD vs WV

NCST: N/A (No games against power conferences)

Syracuse vs Penn St

Wake @ Vandy

Coastal: (6)

Duke: N/A (No games against power conferences)

GT vs GA

Miami vs FL

NC @ USCe

Pitt vs ND

VA vs Oregon

VT vs Alabama

A much better overall schedule of games. One team from each division not even giving the OOC a go this year. At least a few of these are probably a given on the "L" side, but hopefully as a whole, the ACC can at least aim for (6-7) or so. A good measure for the conference would be the overall results in the 7 games against the SEC east.

Best case scenario for the ACC based on crossover games, etc:

Atlantic:

Clemson wins both the battles against the SEC and FSU (12-0)

OR

FSU beats FL, Clemson, Miami, and doesn't lose a game they shouldn't (12-0)

Coastal:

Miami beats FL and only loses to FSU (11-1)

*GT would have to lose to Clemson and Miami for scenario to work

*I am assuming VT loses to Alabama and then also lose @ Miami

**Only dark horse far fetched idea that will also probably crumble in week 1 is UNC beating USCe and then making a run to (12-0). They would have represented the Coastal last year by winning tie breakers against Miami and GT, but I don't see them winning @GT, @VT, and @NCST though.

Actual Results based on recent history: Everyone loses 2 or 3 games at a minimum.
