Will ACC move to 9-game league schedule for possible ACC Network?

The ACC conference is constantly trying to stay close financially with other power five football conferences, and one way is to commence a brand-new ACC Network for an additional revenue stream.

One way to facilitate the move to an ACC network might be moving towards a nine-game ACC schedule as the ACC and the SEC are the only two power five conferences yet to adopt the new model.

"Indeed, nine games are quite possible if, as expected, the ACC and ESPN agree by year's end to broaden the league’s exposure through traditional (cable) and progressive (online streaming) means," Daily Press writer David Teel said.

"But if ACC schools want a channel, in whatever form that may be, and coinciding revenue bump, this is a change they would be wise to make," Teel said.

The ACC agreed to the nine-game league schedule back in 2012 but abandoned it immediately after the pseudo-addition of Notre Dame.
