ACC releases future matchups through 2016

The ACC announced future conference matchups for the 2014-15 and 2015-16 league schedules on Tuesday.

In the league's 15-team format, a school plays its permanent rivals twice per year along with two additional teams determined by a rotation. The rest of the conference schedule includes one game against each team, with the site also determined by a rotation.

Observations:

-- Welcome to the ACC, Louisville! Maryland arguably got the short end of the stick in 2013-14, having to make trips to Duke and North Carolina with no return visit. The Cardinals will get a rotating home-and-home with UNC in its first ACC year and a visit from the Blue Devils. 

-- Just one more year of double Duke-Syracuse. Duke and Syracuse played out two instant classics in the regular season this year, but don't take that home-and-home for granted. The two heavyweights will play twice in 2014-15, but just once (at Duke) in 2015=16. 

-- Virginia-Louisville could be a fun new rivalry. The Wahoos draw for next season looks managageable, with just one meeting against Duke (at home), Syracuse and North Carolina. But since Louisville has taken Maryland's place as UVA's primary rival, we get two annual meetings between the programs. Both teams should be in ACC title contention next year, and could continue to get in each other's way moving forward. 

We've included the 2014-15 ACC matchups below, but you can check out an easy-to-read logo schedule (PDF) that runs through the 2015-16 season by clicking here.
