ACC Football 2020: Non-conference opponent data for all 15 teams

The official ACC Football 2020 schedule was announced on Thursday. This release provided additional scheduling context: dates of games and non-conference opponents for most of the league’s 15 teams. The ACC has an 11-game schedule model for the 2020 season due to COVID-19: 10 conference games and one non-conference matchup.

With that in mind, here’s a look at the non-conference matchup data for all 15 programs, as presently constituted. Two teams — Clemson and North Carolina — don’t officially have an out-of-conference opponent set in stone.


A reminder: non-conference opponents must meet certain qualifications, too. In terms of location, those games must take place in the home state of the ACC program. All out-of-conference opponents must also meet the medical protocol requirements put forth by the ACC.

The name Liberty can also be found as the non-conference opponent for three different ACC schools: NC State, Syracuse and Virginia Tech.
