2021 ACC football schedule: Games, dates, matchups – NCAA.com

Here is the 2021 ACC college football schedule. You can find scores from the 2020 season at the end of this article and always go to NCAA.com’s live scoreboard for scores from this season.

The ACC plans to return to its Atlantic and Coastal divisions for the 2021 college football season.

That’s contingent on national and local health guidelines allowing the games to be played. Teams are scheduled to play eight conference games and four non-conference games. Notre Dame played within the conference in 2020 but returns to independent status in 2021. The Fighting Irish will play non-conference games against Florida State, Virginia Tech, Virginia, North Carolina and Georgia Tech.

Two ACC teams will begin their season at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta: Miami vs. Alabama on Saturday, Sept. 4, and Louisville vs. Old Miss on Monday, Sept. 6. Clemson and Georgia will play in Charlotte on Sept. 4.
