Sport ACC unveils schedule, may push championship game back a week
Report: SEC moving toward 10-game, conference-only schedule
The move reportedly was approved by a majority of the conference’s athletic directors.While the Pac-12 and Big Ten announced earlier in the month that they were playing conference-only schedules for college football, the SEC and ACC said they would wait until later in the month to make decisions.
