ACC Best Non Conference Matchups of 2015

Updated on September 16, 2015


The ACC has made strides in climbing up the ladder to be in the conversation of one of the top conferences in college football. They finished last season with a 45-21 mark in non conference games including the bowl games. Florida State has carried the banner ever since they entered the ACC back in 1991.The Seminoles ended the SEC streak of bcs titles and last year made it into the collgege football playoff. But other teams are emerging like Virginia Tech, who was only team to beat national champ Ohio State last year. Last mark the first time that the ACC went undefeated against the SEC in their annual rivalry games as Florida State beat Florida, Georgia Tech beat Georgia, Clemson took out South Carolina and Louisville stopped Kentucky. Although conference play is certainly important you must schedule some tough out conferences games as well especially nowadays with the college football playoff. This season the ACC will play the toughest non conference schedule than any other of the power 5 conferences. It will be interesting to see how they fair because they certainly will get it shot at being the top conference in college football. Here are my 25 top ACC out conference games for the 2015 season.

      Strength of schedule is so important for the playoff picture and a conference has to be smart about it. Playing against cupcake teams doesn't impress anyone. We're going to see a lot more of this year and I love it!
