The Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) is a collegiate athletic conference in the United States in which its fifteen member universities compete in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA’s) Division I, with its football teams competing in the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS), the highest levels for athletic competition in US-based collegiate sports. The ACC sponsors competition in twenty-five sports with many of its member institutions’ athletic programs held in high regard nationally. ACC teams and athletes have claimed dozens of national championships in multiple sports throughout the conference’s history. Generally, the ACC’s top athletes and teams in any particular sport in a given year are considered to be among the top collegiate competitors in the nation. The ACC is considered to be one of the six collegiate power conferences, all of which enjoy extensive media coverage and automatic qualifying for their football champion into the Bowl Championship Series (BCS). With the advent of the College Football Playoff in 2014, the ACC will be one of five conferences with a contractual tie-in to an “access bowl”, the successors to the BCS.

Founded in 1953 in Greensboro, North Carolina, by seven universities located in the South Atlantic States, the conference added additional members in late 1953, 1979, 1991, 2004, and 2013. The 2004 and 2013 additions extended the conference’s footprint into the Northeast and Midwest. The most recent expansion in 2013 saw the additions of the University of Notre Dame, the University of Pittsburgh, and Syracuse University. In 2012, the University of Maryland’s Board of Regents voted to withdraw from the ACC to join the Big Ten Conference. On November 28, 2012, the ACC’s Council of Presidents voted unanimously to invite the University of Louisville as a full member, replacing Maryland.

  1. Either SU is underrated, or LSU is overrated, here's what I saw.  LSU special teams were terrible (save one good return) they gave SU great field position throughout and a ton of yards to Estime.  LSU's offense was a one trick pony, they threw deep maybe 5-6 times and only completed twice, other than that the SU defensive backs kept them in check.  Their front line opened good holes for an unbelievably talented running back (Fournette), however all other runners were stuffed and showed no ability to even break a tackle.  LSU's wide receiver core dropped passes, and were only able to make two big plays, and the quarterback was inaccurate through most of the game.  LSU's defense wasn't much better, the front 7 were stout against the run, they have speed, and good block shedding ability.  However they have a secondary that got burned once by Bristley Estime, and were constantly holding and interfering with Syracuse wide receivers who were blowing by them.  Syracuse scored 3 times through the air in the second half, using a 5th string walk on qb, throwing to wide receivers who were making LSU corners look silly.  All in all the LSU offensive front line, starting running back, and defensive front 7 could be graded at an A to A+ grade.  The LSU special teams would probably earn a B- (only because of the one TD they scored, otherwise the grade would be much lower). LSU wide receivers would probably earn a C+. The LSU quarterback play would probably earn a C+.  The LSU secondary was a C to C- at best, and all other running backs not named Fournette were a D.  LSU will be in big trouble if anyone figures out how to stop Fournette, and if Fournette should get injured!!!  Then LSU will lose quite a few games.  LSU is good, but they can be beat.

  2. That DB #2 for the Orange kept talking smack and kept getting g run over and left behind, you would think the kid would have been humbled

  3. When I saw Tom " Bug Eyes " Ritter, I thought LSU would have at least twice as many penalties as Syracuse…WTF as LSU ended up with more than three times as many penalties as Syracuse!!! Ritter and his crew should be banned from officiating LSU games given the recurring theme.
