Future ACC Football Opponents Announced for 2024-2030
CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The Atlantic Coast Conference released future football schedules from 2024-2030 for its member institutions Monday night on ACC Network.
As part of the news, the ACC announced the Hurricanes would have two permanent crossover opponents in Florida State and Virginia Tech beginning in 2024.
Along with the Hokies and Seminoles, the Hurricanes will welcome Duke and Wake Forest to Hard Rock Stadium under the new scheduling format in 2024. Miami will travel to Cal, Georgia Tech, Louisville and Syracuse next fall.
The new schedule will continue with no divisions, feature 17 schools and will increase the number of annual conference matchups from 56 to 68. The top two teams based on conference winning percentage will compete in the ACC Football Championship Game on the first Saturday in December at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Opponents for the 2024-2030 seasons are as follows – all game dates and times are TBA:
Home: Duke, Florida State*, Virginia Tech*, Wake Forest
