ACC maintains 8 game conference schedule and adds requirement to play a power 5 non-conference opponent beginning in 2017

5
Matchups against Notre Dame will fulfill the requirement to play play one power 5 (SEC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac 12) conference opponent annually. This is similar to the agreement passed earlier this month by the SEC. It has not been decided whether games against fellow independents BYU and Army will count. Several ACC teams (Florida State, Clemson, Georgia Tech, Louisville) already have permanent non-conference games against SEC rivals and are unaffected by the decision. In addition to those four teams playing Florida, South Carolina, George, and Kentucky, ACC teams will also play Oklahoma State, Georgia, Ohio State, Nebraska, UCLA, USC and Iowa. FSU (against Oklahoma State) and Clemson (Georgia) will be play two of those 7 other power 5 opponents. The plan passed with an 8-6 vote. A majority was required for the measure to pass.
