ACC Announces 2007 Football Schedule

by -

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- The 2007 Atlantic Coast Conference football schedule released today by Commissioner John D. Swofford is comprised of 96 games, including 48 conference match-ups, over a span of 13 weeks.

Twenty-four of the league?s 48 non-conference games (50 percent) are against 18 teams that earned bowl berths in 2006 including defending national champion Florida, third-ranked LSU and No. 6 Louisville. In all, seven of the non-conference games are scheduled against five opponents ? Florida, LSU, Louisville, Notre Dame (three games) and Oklahoma - that comprised half of the teams that played in BCS bowl games this past season. Eight of the 17 non-conference opponents were ranked in last season?s final polls.

Non-conference opponents who earned bowl bids this past season are Alabama, Central Michigan, East Carolina (3 games), Florida, Georgia, Louisville, LSU, Middle Tennessee State, Navy (2), Nebraska, Notre Dame (3), Ohio University, Oklahoma, Rutgers, South Carolina (2), South Florida, Texas A&M and West Virginia. In addition, two other non-conference opponents, Pittsburgh (vs. Virginia, Sept. 29) and Wyoming (vs. Virginia, Sept. 1), were bowl-eligible with 6-6 records.
