The Seminoles will face a tough schedule for the 2016/2017 season.

Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

The ACC officially released the future conference match-ups for the 2016/2017 and 2017/2018 basketball seasons, including those of the Florida State Seminoles. The Noles will face the following teams in each season.

2016/2017 Season
Opponent Game Type
Miami Home/Road
Clemson Home/Road
Duke Home/Road
Notre Dame Home/Road
Wake Forest Home
NC State Home
Virginia Tech Home
Louisville Home
Boston College Home
Georgia Tech Road
North Carolina Road
Virginia Road
Pitt Road
Syracuse Road

Notes: The immediate observation is that drawing both Duke and Notre Dame for a home and home is tough. Duke may be struggling (by their standards) this season, but the Blue Devils are hardly ever down for two seasons in a row. The Irish, who currently sit fifth in the ACC, will be tough, as well. The fun doesn't end there, though, as the Seminoles will also get to travel to face the Tar Heels and the Cavaliers.

2017/2018 Season
Opponent Game Type
Miami Home/Road
Clemson Home/Road
Louisville Home/Road
Boston College Home/Road
Georgia Tech Home
North Carolina Home
Virginia Home
Pitt Home
Syracuse Home
Duke Road
Wake Forest Road
NC State Road
Virginia Tech Road
Notre Dame Road

Notes: The Seminoles will see a decidedly lighter home and home schedule for the 2017/2018 season. Though Louisville will be once again playing for a playoff berth, barring more future self-imposed postseason bans, getting the chance to play Boston College twice is a nice reward for the 2016/2017 home and home set-up. Another tough road schedule awaits, with trips to South Bend and Durham on tap, though overall, it's still a softer away schedule than 2016/2017 (as things look right now).
