Get rid of divisions & give each ACC team 5 annual matchups they want to play. CG will be #1 vs #2.
Louisville playa Kentucky, Pitt, VA Tech, Virginia, Ga Tech & FSU every year. 6 games + 3 rotating conference games. For example:
Year 1 – BC, UNC, Clem
Year 2 – Wake, Cuse, NCST
Year 3 – Miami, Duke….. BC
Year 4 – UNC, Clem, Wake
Year 5 – Cuse, NCST, Miami
Year 6 – Duke….. BC, UNC
Year 7 – Clem, Wake, Cuse
Year 8 – NCST, Miami, Duke…..
Repeat. So 6 annual opponents & play 8 other ACC teams 3x every 8 years. Play Notre Dame every 3rd year for game 10 & schedule home&homes with teams liks Cincy & Indiana between ND games. add 2 home cupcakes & you got yourself a schedule.
Here’s the annual matchups for everyone else:
BC – Cuse, Pitt, Miami, Duke, Wake
