The ACC’s profile in football has been raised by Clemson’s national title.
UConn and Cincinnati should definitely join the conference now.
That would imply that the ACC was not good enough for UConn and Cincy to join previously… which is most certainly not the case. ACC can wait out the eventual Big XII implosion and see if there’s anything better to grab from the clearance sale.

CCU wins 2/3 of that series……good though that KU will go to a 19,000 seat venue for an OOC game..
WRONG. 21,000 by then.
I cannot wait for the 2018 game with Rutgers. It could be build as the showdown to see who is the worst P5 team in America for that season. Ticket prices could go below matinee prices for a second run movie.
A correction. The road game at Miami was canceled by Rutgers at a cost of $100,000 to allow the BC game to be played. It will not be rescheduled. Rutger has two opening to be filled on its OOC schedule.
This is a good deal for Rutgers, If Boston College stinks, then it give Rutgers a remote possibility of winning a P5 OOC game. Rutgers should never again schedule teams like Washington which they did in 2014 knowing full well that giving Chris Petersen 3 years to get Washington to the next level would result in a bloodbath for Rutgers before the Big 10 season and further cement Rutgers into the sub basement of college football rankings. Expect another route in 2017 when Washington comes to New Jersey in September before Rutgers gets dismantled by the likes of Michigan Michigan State, Ohio State and Penn State just like 2016. There is no reason to believe and no evidence in the offing that Rutgers will ever be a serious player in the Big 10-certainly 120 years of mediocrity supports that thesis.
Still hoping Rutgers and Princeton gets done in 2019 for 150th anniversary of first college game. Nov 9 is days from the anniversary and both have open date that day. If they’re going play Norfolk State or Howard might as well play Princeton for its FCS game. Ivy havent played a played a power 5 team in 30 years though . ( Cornell at Stanford around 1990
What a crowd!
good matchup……schools only 4 hours apart.
They can play for who is the worst team in their conference.
College football needs more match ups like this in the Northeast. The Big Ten’s Rutgers, Penn St, and Maryland need more games against the ACC’s Pitt, Syracuse, and Boston College. Working in teams like WVU, UConn, and Temple would be nice too.
Good luck to Boston College. You will need it!!!
