• With the addition of Pittsburgh and Syracuse, the league went to an entirely new scheduling model, just like in 2006 (during the previous round of realignment). As a result, there are a few repeat games from last year: Duke at Wake Forest, Duke at Virginia Tech, Miami at Duke and UNC at Miami. Going forward, each team will play its six divisional opponents and primary crossover partner annually. Each team will play one game each year against a rotating conference opponent. Dukes primary partner is Wake Forest, and North Carolina and N.C. State are partners with each other.
• UNCs eight opponents went a combined 46-56 last season. None won more than seven games. Six of Dukes eight ACC opponents won at least six games last season (all but Virginia and Wake Forest). Their combined record was 51-50. N.C. States opponents went a combined 56-45.
• A benefit of the schedule reset: Duke wont have to make its previously scheduled trip to Clemson. And, in a surprise, Duke will play N.C. State sooner than expected.
