WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- The ACC has announced schedule changes for the final two weeks of the regular season, which will send Wake Forest to Louisville on Saturday, Dec. 12, before returning home to Truist Field to host Florida State for Senior Day on Saturday, Dec. 19.
“While we are certainly disappointed to not be able to host Notre Dame for the Duke’s Mayo Classic on December 12, we are glad to have two more regular season opportunities to compete and secure an upper-division league finish, as well as a program-record fifth-straight bowl berth,” said athletics director John Currie.
“I am extremely proud of the resilience of Coach Clawson and our student-athletes,” said Currie. “The adaptability and collective spirit of our league AD’s, and the leadership of Commissioner Swofford, have enabled the ACC to provide more competition opportunities for student-athletes than any other conference.”
Game times and broadcast information will be announced at a later date.
GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) – The Atlantic Coast Conference announced today several football schedule changes, as well as adjustments to its Medical Advisory Group Report.
Following a recommendation from the conference Athletic Director football subcommittee, the league’s Athletic Directors have voted to preserve the integrity of the ACC Football Championship Game by evaluating each of the three teams in contention (Clemson, Miami and Notre Dame) based on a nine-game conference schedule. As a result, Clemson and Notre Dame will conclude the regular season this weekend.
Wake Forest, which was scheduled to play Notre Dame on Dec. 12, will now play at Louisville. Florida State will play host to Duke on Saturday, Dec. 12, and Florida State will travel to Wake Forest on Dec. 19.
