At the end of last week, the ACC announced the 2013 conference football matchups with the additions of Pittsburgh and Syracuse.
Each team will play eight conference games in football (four home, four away). Six games will be played within the division (three home, three away). The other two games will be against crossover opponents from the other division. In 2013, all Atlantic Division opponents will host the game against their primary crossover opponent, while the Coastal Division will host the game against a rotating crossover opponent.
The primary crossover opponent will not change for each school, but the rotating crossover opponent will change each season. With the exception of Pitt and Syracuse, each team will be playing their rotating crossover opponent for the first time since 2009.
Pitt will be joining the Coastal Division and Syracuse will be joining the Atlantic Division and will play each other annually as primary crossover opponents. Other primary crossover opponents are as follows: Boston College versus Virginia Tech, Clemson versus Georgia Tech, Florida State versus Miami, Maryland versus Virginia, NC State versus North Carolina, and Duke versus Wake Forest.
Duke will play at Wake in 2013, along with at Virginia Tech and will face Miami at home (just like in 2012). The Blue Devils rotating opponent for 2013 is NC State and it will be played in Durham. They will also play Georgia Tech and Pitt at home and travel to UNC and UVA.
The full ACC football schedule will be announced sometime in February.
