So with that in mind, we thought it would be an entertaining undertaking to rank all 112 ACC football games for 2013 because, well… it’s the offseason.
Today, we take a quick glance at numbers 80 through 71; several in-conference games in this list, as an unfortunate result of the league’s severe imbalance between its best and worst teams, respectively. Additionally, there’s a marked uptick in quality of non-conference games as well — though we’re still nowhere near the highlights of the ACC slate.
#78: UL-Monroe Warhawks at Wake Forest Demon Deacons (Saturday, September 14)
#76: Maryland Terrapins at Connecticut Huskies (Saturday, September 14)
#74: Maryland Terrapins at Florida State Seminoles (Saturday, October 5)
#73: Clemson Tigers at Virginia Cavaliers (Saturday, November 2)
#71: Oregon Ducks at Virginia Cavaliers (Saturday, September 7)
