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:
Clemson wins both the battles against the SEC and FSU (12-0)
FSU beats FL, Clemson, Miami, and doesn't lose a game they shouldn't (12-0)
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.
