The ACC announced before the SEC. The +1 has to be a game “in-state.” IOW, the rule was to keep from blowing up the 2 in-state ACC-SEC rivalries you identified, plus Kentucky/Louisville and SC/Clemson. With the SEC announcement, expect the ACC +1 to be dropped to match the SEC, PAC, and B1G. As a more general response to this thread: Likewise, expect the Big 12 to either bring in BYU for one year, go to a conference semifinal + championship format, or allow a single buy game. The die is cast. This is going to be a conference only season, and the AAC, MWC, MAC, CUSA, WAC and Sun Belt are likely to follow next week. Even if the Big 12 allows a +1 OOC game, expect TCU to bring in a body bag FCS—and certainly not go on the road.
