GREENSBORO, N.C. – The Atlantic Coast Conference released the conference games-only portion of the league’s football schedule for the 2005 season today.

Beginning next season, the ACC will play in football aligned into two six-team divisions – Atlantic and Coastal. Teams will play all five opponents in their division, plus one primary crossover opponent every year and two rotating opponents from the opposite division. The divisional champions will meet in the league’s inaugural football championship game scheduled to be held at the ALLTEL Stadium in Jacksonville, Fla., on Saturday, December 3, 2005.


The primary principles used in determining the 2005 schedule were to fulfill as much as possible the “home-away” situations from the 2004 schedule and eliminate repeat site games from the 2004 season to the 2005 season.
