Most important game: Maryland - ACC Blog - ESPN

ACC football releases rotating cross-division schedule details through 2024 - SBNation.com
More reason you should be happy Maryland is leaving the ACC. This rotating cross-division schedule is terrible. If we'd stayed, we'd have played Virginia (cross-rival) yearly (although it may have been Pitt), along with FSU, Clemson, State, Syracuse, Wake, and BC. Sorry, playing Michigan. Ohio State, PSU, Wisconsin, Michigan State, etc. is far superior to that. And anyone who thinks that because Maryland has struggled the last few years means they can't compete in the Big Ten, that's a terrible way to think about this. Byrd will be sold out for every game, they'll have more money to invest in the program, and as long as they continue to lock down the state of Maryland, they'll be fine.
