NCAA Football: ACC Championship-Clemson vs Miami

The ACC released its revised 2020 schedule on Thursday, and it's littered with compelling matchups. The conference had already announced that it will play 10 conference games plus one nonconference contest starting Sept. 10, which would have been Week 2 of the normal regular season.

"Today's decision was made after months of thoughtful planning by numerous individuals throughout the conference," said ACC Commissioner John Swofford. "The Board's decision presents a path, if public health guidance allows, to move forward with competition. Our institutions are committed to taking the necessary measures to facilitate the return in a safe and responsible manner. We recognize that we may need to be nimble and make adjustments in the future. We will be as prepared as possible should that need arise."

What are the biggest games of the ACC season? All eyes go immediately to the Notre Dame vs. Clemson game, of course. The Fighting Irish joined the ACC for the year and host the Tigers on Nov. 7 in a battle of what should be two preseason top 15 teams. It could be the first of two meetings between the two since the conference eliminated divisions and decided to take the teams with the top two winning percentages in the conference championship game.

Another big game involving Notre Dame will be Oct. 10, when it hosts Florida State in South Bend, Indiana. The last meeting between these two teams was in 2014 when the Seminoles kept their undefeated season alive after offensive pass interference was called on the Irishin the final minute of the game.

Miami (FL), a team that could be considered one of the favorites, comes out of the gate hot with games against Louisville, Florida State and Clemson through the first five weeks of the season. Oh, and that starts with a game against the gritty UAB Blazers. Another out-of-conference element of note is the Georgia Tech - UCF game that was already on the schedule prior to the shutdown.

"As we look ahead to the fall, the safety of our students, staff and overall campus community continues to be our top priority," said Kent Syverud, Syracuse chancellor and ACC Board of Directors chair. "Today's announcement outlines a specific path for ACC fall sports to return to intercollegiate athletic competition using comprehensive protocols put forward by our ACC Medical Advisory Group. As a league, we understand the need to stay flexible and be prepared to adjust as medical information evolves in conjunction with local and state health guidelines."

The 2020 ACC Championship Game will be played on Saturday, Dec. 12 or Saturday, Dec. 19 at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte. The conference has abolished divisions this year and will take the teams with the top two conference winning percentages to participate. Notre Dame will be eligible for the conference championship game even though, during most years, its football game operates as an independent. The ACC's television contract and Notre Dame's NBC contract will be split among all 15 teams.
