2024 ACC schedule: Stanford, Cal to open conference play across the country in expanded league

The new-look ACC now officially has a football schedule for this fall.

The ACC announced its full 17-team schedule for the 2024 season on Wednesday ahead of Cal, Stanford and SMU joining the league this summer. The league had already revealed its scheduling model through the 2030 season, but official dates for the 2024 season werenโ€™t unveiled until Wednesday.

Fans will get a great look at the new ACC right away, too. Stanford will open ACC play at Syracuse, about 2,800 miles away, on Friday, Sept. 20. Cal will then follow suit at Florida State, about 2,600 miles away, the next day. SMU will then host Florida State the following weekend in its first conference game.

Florida State and Georgia Tech will open the college football season in Ireland on Aug. 24, too. Each team will play eight conference games without divisions, and teams will play every other school at least twice over the next seven seasons. Non-California teams will travel to California three times over the next seven seasons, but will not do so in back-to-back seasons. There are 16 protected rivalries that the ACC created โ€” including Stanford-Cal, Stanford-SMU and Cal-SMU.

"The 2024 ACC football schedule is significant for so many reasons. As always, there's tremendous anticipation and excitement surrounding the upcoming season, which this year will include our newest members in Cal, SMU and Stanford," ACC commissioner Jim Phillips said in a statement.

"Throughout the entire process โ€” from creating the new model and building the complete 2024 schedule โ€” the membership was incredibly thoughtful and committed to producing an exciting, fair, and balanced schedule with our student-athlete experience as the top priority. Between first-time matchups, meaningful rivalry games and once again playing arguably the toughest collection of non-conference opponents โ€” there will be no shortage of interest in ACC football throughout the season."

Below are the 2024 schedules for each of the teams in the ACC.
