ACC officials have discussed the possibility of playing eight league games and one game against a SEC opponent every year. According to

An SEC source told 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 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.
