ACC Announces Football Schedule for 2020 Season

Add the ACC to the list of schools with adjustments to their fall football schedules.

The ACC announced Wednesday they will be making the executive decision to start their football season on September 7, one week later than initially anticipated.

The new ACC football schedule will consist of an 11-game season, featuring 10 conference games to go along with one nonconference matchup.

Additionally, Notre Dame, who identifies as an independent, has been granted temporary access to the ACC. In this case, they will be able to abide by the conference’s model, as well as be given the opportunity to compete in the ACC’s championship game.

“Today’s decision was made after months of thoughtful planning by numerous individuals throughout the conference,” said ACC commissioner John Swofford. “The Board’s decision presents a path, if public health guidance allows, to move forward with competition. Our institutions are committed to taking the necessary measures to facilitate the return in a safe and responsible manner. We recognize that we may need to be nimble and make adjustments in the future. We will be as prepared as possible should that need arise.”
