Similar to baseball, Ole Miss/MSU and Bama/Auburn will play a random mid week game but it doesn't count toward their conference record.

Spurrier told teams like BAMA/AU to schedule UT/UGA as a non conference game the years they didn't play. It would of helped getting through the SEC quicker with no cross division rivals.
They are counting ND as the 15th team.

I don't understand why they would even want ND to play 5 games in their schedule. If they aren't eligible to play for the conference title why have them at all?

And apparently the ACC doesn't know where ND is geographically. Nowhere close to an Atlantic coast team lol. (not that it really matters).

Why schedule another ACC team as a non conference? Just add a mid level FCS team and you get the same amount of competition.

Like others have said, why schedule another ACC team and weaken your non conference schedule when you could play ANY OTHER CONFERENCE and make your schedule stronger?

I guess they want to stay as a joke conference in football. I can't wait until someone over there get's screwed out of a championship shot because their "non-conference ACC game" wasn't counted. It's inevitable if they do this.

I really don't think it's a bad idea at all...it would solve all the SEC's scheduling problems.

We only have cross division rivals for 4 schools: UGa, Auburn, Bama, and UT.

SEC should get rid of cross division rivals rotate both opposite division games every year and years that Bama/UT and UGa/Auburn aren't scheduled to play each other by the conference they can just schedule the game out of conference like we do with Clemson

Why don't they just come out and move Clepmsun to the opposite division from fsu that is what they want to do quit beating around the bush and make yourself look better by separating your current best 2 teams. Although there is nothing they can do to gain respect not even a fluke nc over a lucky auburn team who's luck ran out.

What a joke by a conference starving for credibility. The Athletically Challenged Conference is barely more than a mid major conference in football.

I hope ND pulverizes these clowns into the dirt only to get destroyed in the playoffs. It would serve all of them right
