As of Thursday, football teams in the Atlantic Coast Conference can start making plans. That’s because the ACC schedule has been announced, and in traditional fashion, each program will play eight games against conference opponents.

The ACC also claims that it will play the 2021 season as originally scheduled.

“If public health guidance allows, the ACC will kick off the 2021 schedule on Labor Day weekend with games on Thursday (Sept. 2), Friday (Sept. 3), Saturday (Sept. 4), Sunday (Sept. 5) and Monday (Sept. 6),” an ACC statement read. “NC State faces USF in Raleigh on Thursday, Sept. 2, and Virginia Tech will play host to North Carolina in the first conference matchup of the season on either Thursday, Sept. 2 or Friday, Sept. 3. Wake Forest plays host to Old Dominion on Friday, Sept. 3.”

As an aside, Notre Dame will return to independent status after competing as a full ACC member last season. The Fighting Irish will still play five games vs. ACC opponents.
