“The move to an 18-game conference schedule will strengthen the already compelling matchups and build upon both traditional and new rivalries,” said ACC Commissioner John Swofford. “Playing more games against conference teams will enhance the student-athlete experience and benefit our fans, and the optimal time to make this change is with the launch of the ACC Network.”
Teams will continue to face each other once. However, four teams will play twice.
