ACC Unveils 2016 FBS Schedule

0

 

There are 220 days until the fist Saturday of the 2016 college football season, and the Atlantic Coast Conference couldn’t wait any longer; on Monday they officially announced the conference’s full 2016 schedule.

There should be plenty of quality match ups to look forward to once that “days ’til college football” number dwindles down to single digits, but why wait to breakdown one of the Power Five’s most difficult schedules of 2016?

According to Bleacher Report, the ACC will play more games than any other Power Five conference:

  • Against non-conference teams that were ranked in the final Associated Press Top 25 (12)
  • Against non-conference teams that went to bowl games in 2015 (27).
  • Against non-conference teams that were ranked in the final Coaches poll (14).

Some of the featured games that we’ll be tuning in to:

September 3rd, 2016

Georgia Tech vs. Boston College (Game being played at Aviva Stadium in Dublin, Ireland.)

Clemson at Auburn

North Carolina vs. Georgia (Atlanta, Georgia)

Props to the folks who get things done in ACC scheduling process. Who doesn’t want to see Deshaun Watson get into a offensive shootout with Gus Malzahn and Auburn? Or watch the Hokies go head to head against Tennessee inside the infield at Bristol Motor Speedway? There is even going to be a game in Dublin to kickoff the season. I’ll drink some Guinness to that.

In the meantime, just mark off another day on your calendar. 220…
