Virginia Tech Football: Hokies schedule with divisions eliminated in ACC

The framework of ACC football scheduling went out the window this morning when the conference announced the elimination of divisions. The split between Atlantic and Coastal will be no more starting in the 2023. In it’s place, they’ve adopted a 3-5-5 format. That gives each team each team 3 primary opponents and a pair of home and away games versus the other ten teams in the conference over four years. For Virginia Tech, this will shake up their conference schedule starting next year.
