|ESPN: ACC plans on continuing FCS games|
|by TigerNet Staff - Thursday, May 16, 2013 11:07 AM||
In the latest article by ESPN's Andrea Adelson, Dabo Swinney and other members of the ACC talk about their continued support of playing teams in the FCS.
Clemson is in a similar situation this season, having to play two FCS teams. When the league decided to move to a nine-game league schedule, Clemson jettisoned Kent State for this season. But when Notre Dame agreed to a scheduling partnership, the league went back to eight conference games. It was too late for Clemson to get Kent State back, so it had to add a second FCS team. Georgia Tech also has two FCS teams on the schedule this year for the same reason.
Neither is ideal, and nobody supports playing two FCS games per year.
"Everybody is OK with one," Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said. "There’s a lot of positives that come from it. Duke, it’s important to them to play North Carolina (Central). I think it’s great for us to play somebody in our state, a Furman, a Citadel and really create that revenue for our state and the opportunities for those student-athletes."
