The Atlantic Coast Conference
Atlantic Coast Conference
(ACC) is a collegiate athletic conference in the United States of America in which its fifteen member universities compete in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA)'s Division I, with its football teams competing in the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS), the highest levels for athletic competition in US-based collegiate sports. The ACC sponsors competition in twenty-five sports with many of its member institutions' athletic programs held in high regard nationally. Members of the conference are Boston College, Clemson University, Duke University, Georgia Institute of Technology, Florida

State University, North Carolina
North Carolina
State University, Syracuse University, the University of Louisville, the University of Miami, the University of North Carolina, the University of Notre Dame, the University of Pittsburgh, the University of Virginia, Virginia
Virginia
Polytechnic Institute and State University, and Wake Forest University. ACC teams and athletes have claimed dozens of national championships in multiple sports throughout the conference's history. Generally, the ACC's top athletes and teams in any particular sport in a given year are considered to be among the top collegiate competitors in the nation. Also, the conference enjoys extensive media coverage. The ACC was one of the six collegiate power conferences, which had automatic qualifying for their football champion into the Bowl Championship Series (BCS). With the advent of the College Football Playoff
College Football Playoff
in 2014, the ACC is one of five conferences with a contractual tie-in to a "New Year's Six" bowl game, the successors to the BCS. The ACC was founded on May 8, 1953 by seven universities located in the South Atlantic States, with the University of Virginia

joining later that year to bring the membership to eight.[2] The loss of South Carolina in 1971 dropped membership to seven, while the addition of Georgia Tech in 1979 for non-football sports and 1983 for football brought it back to eight, and Florida
Florida
State's arrival in 1991 for non-football sports and 1992 for football increased the membership to nine. Since 2000, with the widespread reorganization of the NCAA, seven additional schools have joined, and one original member (Maryland) has left to bring it to the current membership of 15 schools. The additions in recent years extended the conference's footprint into the Northeast and Midwest. ACC member universities represent a range of well-regarded private and public universities of various enrollment sizes, all of which participate in the Atlantic Coast Conference

Academic Consortium whose purpose is to "enrich the educational missions, especially the undergraduate student experiences, of member universities".

Member universities[edit] Current members[edit] The ACC has 15 member institutions located within the borders of 10 contiguous states. Listed in alphabetical order, these 10 states within the ACC's geographical footprint are Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Massachusetts, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Virginia. The geographic domain of the conference is predominantly within the Southern and Northeastern United States
Northeastern United States
along the US Atlantic coast and stretches from Florida
Florida
in the south to New York in the North and from Indiana
Indiana
in the west to Massachusetts furthest east. In two sports, football and baseball, the ACC is divided into two non-geographic divisions of seven teams each, labeled the "Atlantic" and "Coastal" divisions. Notre Dame does not participate in ACC football and Syracuse does not participate in ACC baseball, leaving 14 total ACC schools for each of those sports. For all other sports, the ACC operates as a single unified league with no divisions. When Notre Dame joined the ACC, it chose to remain a football independent. However, its football team established a special scheduling arrangement with the ACC to play a rotating selection of five ACC football teams per season.

Since July 1, 2014, the 15 members of the ACC are:

Membership timeline[edit]

Full members Non-football members History[edit] Founding and early expansion[edit] The ACC was established on June 14, 1953, when seven members of the Southern Conference
Southern Conference
left to form their own conference. These seven universities became charter members of the ACC: Clemson, Duke, Maryland, North Carolina, North Carolina
North Carolina
State, South Carolina, and Wake Forest. They left partially due to that league's ban on post-season football play. After drafting a set of bylaws for the creation of a new league, the seven withdrew from the Southern Conference at the spring meeting on the morning of May 8, 1953 at the Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, North Carolina. The bylaws were ratified on June 14, 1953, and the ACC was created, becoming the second conference formed by schools collectively withdrawing from the SoCon, after the Southeastern Conference. On December 4, 1953, officials convened in Greensboro, North Carolina, and admitted Virginia, a SoCon charter member that had been independent since 1937, into the conference.[5] In 1960, the ACC implemented a minimum SAT score for incoming student-athletes of 750, the first conference to do so. This minimum was raised to 800 in 1964, but was ultimately struck down by a federal court in 1972.[6] In 1971, South Carolina
South Carolina
left the ACC to become an independent. 1978 & 1991 expansion[edit] The ACC operated with seven members until the addition of Georgia Tech from the Metro Conference, announced on April 3, 1978 and taking effect on July 1, 1979 except in football, in which Tech would remain an independent until joining ACC football in 1983. The total number of member schools reached nine with the addition of Florida
Florida
State, also formerly from the Metro Conference, on July 1, 1991 in non-football sports and July 1, 1992 in football. The additions of those schools marked the first expansions of the conference footprint since 1953, though both schools were still located with the rest of the ACC schools in the South Atlantic States. 2004–2005 expansion[edit] See also: 2005 NCAA
NCAA
conference realignment The ACC added three members from the Big East Conference during the 2005 conference realignment: Miami and Virginia Tech
Virginia Tech
joined on July 1, 2004, and Boston College
Boston College
joined on July 1, 2005, as the league's twelfth member and the first from the Northeast. The expansion was controversial, as Connecticut, Rutgers, Pittsburgh, and West Virginia (and, initially, Virginia
Virginia
Tech) filed lawsuits against the ACC, Miami, and Boston College
Boston College
for conspiring to weaken the Big East Conference. 2010–present[edit] The ACC Hall of Champions opened on March 2, 2011, next to the Greensboro Coliseum arena, making the ACC the second college sports conference to have a hall of fame after the Southern Conference (SoCon).[7][8] On September 17, 2011, Big East Conference members Syracuse University and the University of Pittsburgh
University of Pittsburgh
both applied to join the ACC.[9] The two schools were accepted into the conference the following day, once again expanding the conference footprint like previous expansions.[10] Because the Big East intended to hold Pitt and Syracuse to the 27-month notice period required by league bylaws, the most likely entry date into the ACC (barring negotiations) was July 1, 2014.[11] However, in July 2012, the Big East came to an agreement with Syracuse and Pitt that allowed the two schools to leave the Big East on July 1, 2013.[12][13] On September 12, 2012, Notre Dame agreed to join the ACC in all sports except football and hockey as the conference's first member in the Midwestern United States. As part of the agreement, Notre Dame will play five football games each season against ACC teams beginning in 2014.[14] On March 12, 2013, Notre Dame and the Big East announced they had reached a settlement allowing Notre Dame to join the ACC effective July 1, 2013.[15] On November 19, 2012, the University of Maryland's Board of Regents voted to withdraw from the ACC to join the Big Ten Conference effective in 2014.[16] The following week, the Big East's University of Louisville accepted the ACC's invitation to become a full member, replacing Maryland effective July 1, 2014.[citation needed] The ACC's presidents announced on April 22, 2013, that all 15 schools that would be members of the conference in 2014–15 had signed a grant of media rights (GOR), effective immediately and running through the 2026–27 school year, coinciding with the duration of the conference's then-current TV deal with ESPN. This move essentially prevents the ACC from being a target for other conferences seeking to expand—under the grant, if a school leaves the conference during the contract period, all revenue derived from that school's media rights for home games would belong to the ACC and not the school.[17] The move also left the SEC as the only one of the FBS Power Five conferences without a GOR.[18]

Commissioner John Swofford

In July 2016, the GOR was extended through the 2035–36 school year, coinciding with the signing of a new 20-year deal with ESPN

that would transform the then-current ad hoc ACC Network

into a full-fledged network. The new network launched as a digital service in the 2016–17 school year and is set to launch as a linear network no later than August 2019.[19] Academics and ACCAC[edit] Academic rankings[edit] Among the major NCAA

ACCAC and ACC academic network[edit]

Atlantic Coast Conference
Atlantic Coast Conference
Academic Consortium

The members of the ACC participate in the Atlantic Coast Conference Academic Consortium (ACCAC), a consortium that provides a vehicle for inter-institutional academic and administrative collaboration between member universities. Growing out of a conference-wide doctoral student-exchange program that was established in 1999, the ACCAC has expanded its scope into other domestic and international collaborations.[38] The stated mission of the ACCAC is to "leverage the athletic associations and identities among the 15 ACC universities in order to enrich the educational missions of member universities." To that end, the collaborative helps organize various academic initiatives, including fellowship and scholarship programs, global research initiatives, leadership conferences, and extensive study abroad programs.[39] Funding for its operations, 90% of which is spent on direct student support, is derived from a portion of the income generated by the ACC Football Championship Game and by supplemental allocations by individual universities and various grants.[40] ACCAC academic programs[edit] Major academic programs that have been implemented under ACCAC include:

The annual Meeting of the Minds (MOM) undergraduate research conference.[41] The annual Student Leadership Conference.[42] The Creativity and Innovation Fellowship Program in which each university receives $12,500 to award between two and five undergraduate students ACCAC fellowships for research or creative projects.[43] The Summer Research Scholars Program in which every ACC university will receive $5,000 to support up to two of its undergraduate students in conducting research in residence at another ACC university during a minimum 10 week period over the summer.[44] The ACC Debate Championship[45] The ACC Inventure Prize Competition is a Shark Tank-like innovation competition for teams of students from ACC universities.[46] The Student Federal Relations Trip to Washington, D.C. is an annual trip of student delegates from ACC universities to the nation's capital.[47] The Creativity Competition is planned to be an ACC-wide, team-based interdisciplinary competition emphasizing use of creative design and the arts to begin in 2017.[47] The Distinguished Lecturers Program in which five ACC universities select an outstanding faculty member as The ACCAC's Distinguished Lecturer. In addition to an award stipend, the ACCAC provides financial support to enable each ACC university to sponsor a "distinguished lecture event" on their campus.[48] The Executive Leadership Series is a two-day skill enhancement programs designed for Deans, Vice Provosts, and Vice Chancellors of ACC universities.[47] The annual Student President Conference.[49] The Coach for College Program, primarily for student-athletes and run through Duke University
Duke University
with support from the ACCAC, that takes 32 ACC students to Vietnam
Vietnam
for three weeks in the summer to coach hundreds of middle school children.[50] The Traveling Scholars Program which allows PhD candidates from one ACC campus to access courses, laboratories, library, or other resources at any one of the other ACC member institution campuses.[51] The Clean Energy Grant Competition that helps coordinate geographically defined clusters of ACC universities in competition for United States Department of Energy
United States Department of Energy
Clean Energy Grants.[51] The Study Abroad Program collaborative which allows cross registration in study abroad programs enroll in programs sponsored by an ACC university other than their "home" university.[51] A Student Study Abroad Scholarship program that awarded two to five ACCAC scholarships for study abroad was discontinued in 2013, but is targeted for renewal in 2014–15.[52]

The ACCAC also supports periodic meetings among faculty, administration, and staff who pursue similar interests and responsibilities at the member universities either by face-to-face conferences, video conferences, or telephone conferences. ACCAC affinity groups include those for International Affairs Officers, Study Abroad Directors, Teaching-Learning Center Directors, Chief Information Officers, Chief Procurement Officers, Undergraduate Research Conference Coordinators, Student Affairs Vice Presidents, Student Leadership Conference Coordinators, and Faculty Athletic Representatives To the ACC.[53] Spending and revenue[edit] Total revenue includes ticket sales, contributions and donations, rights/licensing, student fees, school funds, and all other sources including TV income, camp income, food, and novelties. Total expenses includes coaching/staff, scholarships, buildings/grounds, maintenance, utilities and rental fees, and all other costs including recruiting, team travel, equipment and uniforms, conference dues, and insurance costs.

Sports[edit] The Atlantic Coast Conference
Atlantic Coast Conference
sponsors championship competition in thirteen men's and fourteen women's NCAA-sanctioned sports.[56] The most recently added sport was fencing, added for the 2014–15 school year after having been absent from the conference since 1980; Boston College, Duke, North Carolina, and Notre Dame participate in that sport.[57] Since all ACC members (including non-football member Notre Dame) field FBS football teams, they are subject to the NCAA
NCAA
requirement that FBS schools field at least 16 NCAA-recognized varsity sports. However, the ACC itself requires sponsorship of only four sports—football, men's basketball, women's basketball, and either women's soccer or women's volleyball.[58] All ACC members sponsor all five of the named sports except Georgia Tech, which sponsors women's volleyball but not women's soccer.

Football[edit] See also: Atlantic Coast Conference football champions
Atlantic Coast Conference football champions
and ACC Championship Game The ACC is considered to be one of the Power Five conferences, all of which receive automatic placement of their football champions into one of the six major bowl games. Seven of its members claim football national championships in their history, with two having won the now-defunct Bowl Championship Series
Bowl Championship Series
(BCS) during its existence between 1998 and 2014 and one having won under the current College Football Playoff (CFP) system. Five of its members are among the top 25 of college football's all-time winningest programs.[63] Divisions[edit] In 2005, the ACC began divisional play in football. Division leaders compete in a playoff game to determine the ACC championship. The inaugural Championship Game was played on December 3, 2005, in Jacksonville, Florida, at the venue then known as Alltel Stadium, in which Florida
Florida
State defeated Virginia Tech
Virginia Tech
to capture its 12th championship since it joined the league in 1992. Notre Dame began playing several ACC teams each year in 2014, but is not considered a football member and is not eligible to play in the ACC Championship Game.[64] The ACC is the only NCAA Division I
NCAA Division I
conference whose divisions are not divided geographically (e.g., North/South, East/West).[65] The previous division structure led to each team playing the following games:

Five games within its division (one against each opponent) One game against a designated permanent rival from the other division (not necessarily the school's closest traditional rival, even within the conference); this is similar to the SEC setup Two rotating games (one home, one away) against teams in the other division Four out-of-conference games.

On February 3, 2012, the ACC announced a new regular-season scheduling format which added Syracuse to the Atlantic Division and Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh
to the Coastal Division. These new teams were paired as cross-divisional rivals. This change took effect when Pitt and Syracuse joined the conference in July 2013. On October 3, 2012, it was announced that the extra in-division game would result in one fewer cross-division game.[66] The current division structure leads to each team playing the following games:

Six games within its division (three home, three away, one against each opponent) One game against a designated permanent rival from the other division (not necessarily the school's closest traditional rival, even within the conference); this is similar to the SEC setup One rotating game against a team in the other division Four out-of-conference games. (Beginning with the 2014 season, one of the four OOC games will be against Notre Dame every two to three years, as Notre Dame will play against five ACC opponents in non-conference games each season.)

Starting with the 2017 season, ACC members will be required to play at least one non-conference game each season against a team in the "Power 5" conferences. Games against Notre Dame also meet the requirement. In January 2015, the conference announced that games against another FBS independent, BYU, would also count toward the requirement.[67] ACC teams can also meet the requirement by scheduling one another in non-conference games; the first example of this was also announced in January 2015, when North Carolina
North Carolina
and Wake Forest announced that they would play a home-and-home non-conference series in 2019 and 2021.[68] In the table below, each column represents one division. Each team's designated permanent rival is listed in the same row in the opposing column.[69] Alignments reflect those in place since Louisville joined the ACC in 2014.

Bowl games[edit] Within the College Football Playoff, the Orange Bowl
Orange Bowl
serves as the home of the ACC champion against Notre Dame or another team from the SEC or Big Ten. If the conference's champion is selected for the CFP, another ACC team will be chosen in their place. The other bowls pick ACC teams in the order set by agreements between the conference and the bowls. Beginning in 2014, Notre Dame is eligible for selection as the ACC's representative to any of its contracted bowl games. The ACC's bowl selection will no longer be bound by the rigidity of a "one-win rule" but will have a general list of criteria to emphasize regionality and quality matchups on the field. A one-win rule does apply to Notre Dame's participation in the ACC Bowl structure. Notre Dame is now eligible for ACC Bowl selection beginning with the Citrus Bowl and continuing through the league's bowl selections. However, Notre Dame must be within one win of the ACC available team which has the best overall record, in order to be chosen. In other words, if an ACC team was 9-3, a 7-5 Notre Dame team could not be chosen in its place. Notre Dame would have to be 8-4 to be chosen over a 9-3 league team.

National championships[edit] Although the NCAA

does not determine an official national champion for Division I FBS football, several ACC members claim national championships awarded by various "major selectors" of national championships as recognized in the official NCAA
NCAA
Football Bowl Subdivision Records.[75] Since 1936 and 1950 respectively, these include what are now the most pervasive and influential selectors, the Associated Press

poll and Coaches Poll. In addition, from 1998 to 2013 the Bowl Championship Series
Bowl Championship Series
(BCS) used a mathematical formula to match the top two teams at the end of the season. The winner of the BCS was contractually awarded the Coaches' Poll national championship and its AFCA National Championship Trophy

as well as the MacArthur Trophy from the National Football Foundation. Maryland won one championship as a member of the ACC in 1953.

The early roots of ACC basketball began primarily thanks to two men: Everett Case
Everett Case
and Frank McGuire. Case accepted the head coaching job at North Carolina
North Carolina
State. Case's North Carolina
North Carolina
State teams dominated the early years of the ACC with a modern, fast-paced style of play. He became the fastest college basketball coach to reach many "games won" milestones. Case became known as The Father of ACC Basketball. Despite his success on the court, he may have been even a better promoter off-the-court. Case realized the need to sell his program and university. State started construction on Reynolds Coliseum
Reynolds Coliseum
in 1941. Case persuaded school officials to expand the arena to 12,400 people. It opened as the new home court for his team in 1949; at the time, it was the largest on-campus arena in the South. As such, it was used as the host site for many Southern Conference
Southern Conference
Tournaments, ACC Tournaments, and the Dixie Classic. The Dixie Classic brought in large revenues for all schools involved and soon became one of the premier sporting events in the South. Partly to counter Case's success, North Carolina
North Carolina
convinced Frank McGuire to come to Chapel Hill in 1952. McGuire knew that, largely due to Case's influence, basketball was now the major high school athletic event of the region. He not only tapped the growing market of high school talent in North Carolina, but also brought several recruits from his home territory in New York City as well. Case and McGuire literally invented a rivalry. Both men realized the benefits created through a rivalry between them. It brought more national attention to both of their programs and increased fan support on both sides. After State was slapped with crippling NCAA
NCAA
sanctions before the 1956–57 season, McGuire's North Carolina
North Carolina
team delivered the ACC its first national championship. During the Tar Heels' championship run, Greensboro entrepreneur Castleman D. Chesley noticed the popularity that it generated. He cobbled together a five-station television network to broadcast the Final Four. That network began broadcasting regular season ACC games the following season—the ancestor of today's television package from Raycom Sports. From that point on, ACC basketball gained large popularity. The ACC has been the home of many prominent basketball coaches besides Case and McGuire, including Terry Holland and Tony Bennett of Virginia; Vic Bubas and Mike Krzyzewski

Atlantic Coast Conference
men's basketball regular season champions Possibly Case's most lasting contribution is the ACC Tournament, which was first played in 1954 and decides the winner of the ACC title. The ACC is unique in that it is the only Division I college basketball conference that does not officially recognize a regular season champion. This started when only one school per conference made the NCAA
NCAA
tournament. The ACC representative was determined by conference tournament rather than the regular season result. Therefore, the league eliminated the regular season title in 1961, choosing to recognize only the winner of the ACC tournament as conference champion. Fans and media do claim a regular-season title for the team that finishes first, and the NCAA
NCAA
recognizes a regular-season title winner in order to maintain its system of choosing NIT and NCAA tournament berths based on regular season placement.[81] For the ACC, the unofficial crowning of a regular season champion is insignificant as a 1975 NCAA
NCAA
rule change allowed more than one team per conference to earn a bid to the NCAA
NCAA
Tournament. As a result, the team finishing atop the ACC regular-season standings has invariably been invited to the NCAA
NCAA
Tournament even if it did not win the ACC Tournament. Even so, any claim to a regular season "title" remains unofficial and carries no reward other than top seed in the ACC tournament. Historically, the ACC has been dominated by the four teams from Tobacco Road in North Carolina—North Carolina, Duke, North Carolina State and Wake Forest. Between them, they have won 50 tournament titles. They have also won or shared 59 regular season titles, including all but four since 1981. The Virginia
Virginia
Cavaliers, however, won the regular season titles in 2014 and 2015, becoming the first ACC team besides Duke or North Carolina
North Carolina
to solely win back-to-back regular season titles since 1974. Present-day schedule[edit] See also: ACC–Big Ten Challenge For 53 years, the ACC employed a double round-robin schedule in the regular season, in which each team played the others twice a season. With the expansion to 12 teams by the 2005–2006 season, the ACC schedule could no longer accommodate this format. In the new scheduling format that was agreed to, each team was assigned two permanent partners and nine rotating partners over a three-year period.[82] Teams played their permanent partners in a home-and-away series each year. The rotating partners were split into three groups: three teams played in a home-and-away series, three teams played at home, and three teams played on the road. The rotating partner groups were rotated so that a team would play each permanent partner six times, and each rotating partner four times, over a three-year period. For the 2012–13 season, the 12-team in-conference schedule expanded to 18. Originally for the 2013–14 season, the expanded 14-team, 18-game schedule was to consist of a home and away game with a "primary partner" while the remaining conference opponents would have rotated in groups of three: one year both home and away, one year at home only, and one year away only.[83] However, when Notre Dame was also added for the 2013–14 season, the now 15-team, 18-game schedule was modified so each school played two "Partners" home and away annually, two home and away, five home, and the other five away.[84] In 2013–14, after 1 year at 18 games, women's basketball went back to a 16-game schedule where each team only plays 2 teams twice, rotating opponents each year over seven years and has no permanent partners. The ACC and the Big Ten Conference
Big Ten Conference
have held the ACC–Big Ten Challenge each season since 1999. The competition is a series of regular-season games pitting ACC and Big Ten teams against each other. Each team typically plays one Challenge game each season, except for a few teams from the larger conference that are left out due to unequal conference sizes. The first ACC–Big Ten Women's Challenge was played in 2007, and has the same format as the men's Challenge. National championships and Final Fours[edit] Over the course of its existence, ACC schools have captured 13 NCAA men's basketball championships while members of the conference. North Carolina has won six, Duke has won five, NC State has won two, and Maryland has won one. Three more national titles were won by current ACC members while in other conferences—two by 2014 arrival Louisville and one by 2013 arrival Syracuse; Louisville was forced to vacate a third national title due to NCAA
NCAA
sanctions. Seven of the 12 pre-2013 members have advanced to the Final Four at least once while members of the ACC. Another pre-2013 member, Florida
Florida
State, made the Final Four once before joining the ACC. All three schools that entered the ACC in 2013, as well as Louisville, advanced to the Final Four at least once before joining the conference. Also notable are earlier national championships from historical eras prior to the dominance of the NCAA-administered championship. The ACC is often credited with forcing the NCAA
NCAA
tournament to expand to allow more than one team per conference, creating the at-large NCAA
NCAA
field common today.[85] The Helms Athletic Foundation selected national champions for seasons predating the beginning of the NCAA
NCAA
tournament (1939), including North Carolina, Notre Dame, Pitt, and Syracuse. Prior to the at-large era (1975), the National Invitation Tournament championship had prestige comparable to the NCAA
NCAA
championship, and Louisville, North Carolina, Maryland, and Virginia Tech
Virginia Tech
won titles during this period (later NIT titles are not considered consensus national championships).[86] In women's basketball, ACC members have won three national championships while in the conference, North Carolina
North Carolina
in 1994, Maryland in 2006, and Notre Dame in 2018 . Notre Dame, which joined in 2013, also previously won the national title in 2001. In 2006, Duke, Maryland, and North Carolina
North Carolina
all advanced to the Final Four, the first time a conference placed three teams in the women's Final Four. Both finalists were from the ACC, with Maryland defeating Duke for the title.
