ACC Crossover Opponents Scheduled

Pitt's first meeting with one-time annual rivalry Boston College resumes in 2014. A trip to Clemson in 2016 and a trip to Florida State in 2020 also highlight the list of crossover opponents.

Pittsburgh—The Atlantic Coast Conference has announced Pitt's rotating crossover football opponents for the next 11 seasons.

The Panthers will annually play eight ACC games. Six of those contests will be against Coastal Division opponents (Duke, Georgia Tech, Miami, North Carolina, Virginia and Virginia Tech) and two will be against Atlantic Division teams. Pitt will play Syracuse every year as a permanent Atlantic Division opponent. The other six Atlantic teams will rotate through the Panthers' schedule over a 12-year period.

Pitt's rotating crossover opponent in 2013 is Florida State, which will visit Heinz Field for the season opener on Labor Day (Sept. 2). The Panthers' future rotating opponents from 2014-24 are listed below. (For each ACC team, see PDF attachment.)
