While football has opted for a conference plus one model, other sports will solely compete against other ACC schools.

Here are the relevant rules for Florida State sports:

“I think that we all knew that this was going to be a different type of season and the schedule certainty reflects that but we are thrilled to go out and compete against eight top-level teams,” FSU soccer head coach Mark Krikorian said in a press release. “We are excited to have some competitions here in Tallahassee and get on the road to play some quality opponents as well. All things considered, we are all pretty pleased that we have gotten this far and we hope that a lot continues to go in our favor and we are able to have all of these games.”
