According to TigerNet.com, Clemson will play host to the North Carolina Tar Heels in 2014, dropping UVA after a trip to Charlottesville this season.
In the past, the ACC has always played home-and-roads with opponents from the opposite division. The “crossover rival” remained constant every year with two other crossover games that featured same team two years in a row. In the expanded version of the ACC the “crossover rival” will remain, but there will only be one other crossover match and now they have decided that it will offer a new opponent each season. Clemson’s upcoming opponents from the Coastal Division are below.
With only two total crossover games against the opposing division, this new arrangement makes sense and spices up the schedule. The SEC is still deciding between a horrid 9-game schedule, eliminating crossover rivalries, continuing home-and-roads with crossover opponents, or making a similar move.
Well done Swofford (nobody has ever said that before). Please share your thoughts in the comment section below.
