ACC releases football schedule

If we’re going to play college football this year, a very big if, here’s how one of the Power Five conferences intends to do it

The Atlantic Coast Conference, aka Clemson and The Disciples, released a college football schedule this morning. Here it is in graphic form:

League play isn’t scheduled to start until September 12th, a week later than originally planned. Teams will also have two bye weekends instead of the normal one, and all teams will play 10 conference games with one non-conference matchup.

Notre Dame will be a part of the ACC this year, conceding independence for a normal schedule while throwing in their TV revenue from NBC to be a part of the media rights sharing of the league for 2020 football.

Here are the non-con assignments:

Boston College vs. Ohio September 12th
Clemson: TBA
Duke: vs. Charlotte October 31st
Florida State: vs. Samford September 19th
Georgia Tech: vs. Central Florida September 19th
Louisville: vs. Western Kentucky September 12th
Miami: vs. UAB September 10th
North Carolina: TBA
North Carolina State: vs. Liberty November 21st
Notre Dame: vs. Western Michigan September 19th
Pitt: vs. Miami (OH) September 12th
Syracuse: vs. Liberty October 17th
Virginia: vs. VMI September 11th
Virginia Tech: vs. Liberty November 7th
Wake Forest: vs. Old Dominion October 9th

So that’s the plan. Now the question becomes, for a league that has already had multiple Covid-19 outbreaks before practices in pads have even started, can this actually happen?

That might be a bet you can actually cash before any on the games listed above.
