I’m definitely excited to see some new ACC blood on the schedule, but initial higlights for me are the following:

  • New ACC blood in general
  • Home and home with Texas
  • Shamrock Series at Fenway
  • Shamrock Series coming back to Texas
  • @ Clemson as that’s a bucket list venue

This is going to be a fun three years of football.

    These Shamrock Series are getting a bit questionable now. I get the excitement of playing in Fenway for the historical reasons, but we only get to play in front of 35k fans? That seems dumb to me.

    Why so early against PU? UNC seems like a much better candidate for that, IMO.
