ACC Preseason Predictions For Every Game: Preview 2022

·9 min read

The ACC is sticking with the divisions for one more year, and then it all changes in 2023.

Next season, the conference will become one big blob of ACC, with each team getting three permanent opponents to deal with and a rotation happening among the other five teams on the slate.

Make sense?

It’ll be a 3-5-5 format, basically meaning every team plays everyone else in the conference over two seasons.

For now, the ACC continues to be just about the same.

Duke and Georgia Tech will fight for scraps, Clemson – despite not playing for the ACC Championship last year – should be in a battle with NC State for the top spot, and everyone else can beat anybody else in the ACC depending on the moment.

Road games matter, off weeks are huge, and the teams that don’t get Clemson – or, this year, NC State – will be very, very happy.
