While the fate of college football is still very uncertain, conferences continue to make changes to accommodate travel and other concerns during the coronavirus pandemic.
On Wednesday, the Atlantic Coast Conference announced that it has reworked it’s football scheduling to allow each team to play a total of 11 games and will incorporate Notre Dame to the ACC for the 2020 football season.
Notre Dame, which competes in the conference for each sport except football, has lost many opponents already this season with conferences moving for conference-only schedules. With that in mind, Notre Dame will give up it’s independent status this year in hopes to have a full schedule of opponents.
The ACC also announced that it will eliminate the traditional divisional format for the 2020 season. The two teams with the best winning percentage will meet for the ACC Championship.
Notre Dame, as part of the deal, will equally share TV revenue among the 15 schools. Specific game dates and broadcast details will be released in the coming days.
