The ACC Wants More Games Against The SEC

Marvin Gentry-USA TODAY Sports
ACC officials have discussed the possibility of playing eight league games and one game against a SEC opponent every year. According to ABCNews.com...
quote:

An SEC source told ESPN.com that the ACC's idea of an "8+1 model" was merely a concept that had been discussed only once and was a long way from being a reality. It was so premature, he said, that most athletic directors in the SEC hadn't even been briefed on it.

SEC commissioner Mike Slive told ESPN.com through a spokesman that his conference wants to create a scheduling format to take effect in 2016, but no details have been finalized.

"Achieving that objective involves exploring as many options as possible, which we are currently doing," Slive said. "Anything more is pure speculation."
Four schools in the ACC- Clemson, Georgia Tech, Florida State, and Louisville... who will be member of the conference next year, already have built-in SEC rival games during the final week of the regular season.

Yet, it was only a few short years ago that many said the new look ACC would challenge the SEC for football supremacy. Guess that hasn't happened.

I like the idea. Perhaps the other 8 SEC/ACC teams can have a game matched up by previous years conference finish.
