Football: ACC Announces Rotating Crossover Opponents Schedule


On Tuesday, the Atlantic Coast Conference released a future home and away schedule for conference opponents for each program’s primary crossover opponent as well as a rotating crossover opponent.

According to the ACC, the following criteria was used in developing a schedule:

  • Each ACC school will play eight conference games annually, four at home and four on the road.
  • Each ACC school will play three home divisional games and three on the road.
  • Each ACC school will play one home cross divisional game and one road cross divisional game.  When schools will play their permanent crossover opponent at home, they will play their rotating crossover opponent on the road and vice versa.
  • Within each division, all teams will either play all of their primary crossover games at home or away in a given year with all of the rotating crossover opponents all played at home or away.
  • Each ACC school will play all of their rotating crossover opponents twice during the 12-year rotation, once at home and once on the road, but not consecutively.
