Football's Conference Opponents Set Through 2024 Season




June 4, 2013

Starting in 2014, Boston College football will square off against each of its six ACC Atlantic Division foes (Clemson, Florida State, Louisville, NC State, Syracuse and Wake Forest) and will face primary crossover opponent Virginia Tech of the Coastal Division annually. Its eight-game conference slate will be rounded out each year with one rotating Coastal Division opponent.

Those rotating opponents are: Pittsburgh (2014), at Duke (2015), Georgia Tech (2016), at Virginia (2017), Miami (2018), at Pittsburgh (2019), North Carolina (2020), at Georgia Tech (2021), Duke (2022), at Miami (2023) and Virginia (2024), the league announced on Tuesday.

The rotating crossover opponent is the one ACC team that changes every year on each ACC teams' football schedules. The league previously announced North Carolina as BC's rotating crossover opponent this fall.

The announcement completes the conference schedule for Boston College - and all ACC teams - from 2014 through the 2024 season. For a list of rotating opponents for each ACC member, visit: theacc.com

The criteria used to develop the schedule includes the following:

1. Each ACC school will play eight conference games annually, four at home and four on the road.
2. Each ACC school will play three home divisional games and three on the road.
3. 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.
4. 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.
5. 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.
