Here is the complete 2021 ACC football schedule for every team.

The complete 2021 ACC football schedule has been officially released with the conference returning to its typical eight-conference game schedule with Notre Dame reverting back an independent. Last season’s COVID-19 adjustments included Notre Dame as a full-time conference member and playing 10 league games without the divisional format. That’ll no longer be the case with the hope of returning to some sort of normalcy this upcoming season.

There are four typical ACC vs SEC rivalry games to end the season plus marquee non-conference matchups between Clemson and Georgia, Miami and Alabama, Louisville and Ole Miss and Pitt and Tennessee earlier in the season.
