Changes keep coming to the Big 12 football schedule, however its not always due to their own decisions. On Wednesday, the ACC announced it would go to an 11-game schedule and allow teams to schedule one non-conference against an opponent that has to be in the state the program resides.
That decision is a huge blow to the Chick-Fil-A Kickoff weekend in Atlanta, which included several ACC teams. Florida State, University of North Carolina and University of Virginia are all out, while West Virginia, Georgia and Auburn are the three remaining teams still scheduled to participate.
The Mountaineers were set to take on the Florida State Seminoles, which is obviously no longer going to happen.
The ACC has also made the decision to move the season back to start the weekend of September 12. This decision comes days after the NCAA announced its allowance of teams to move up from week one to week zero, which is what the Oklahoma Sooners decided to do this week with their opener against Missouri State.
The ACC has essentially followed the Big Ten and the Pac-12 in its decision to play only conference games. The SEC and the Big 12 have yet to release a decision on what they plan to do, however there are three serious options the Big 12 Conference is reportedly considering.
The Big 12 has football media day scheduled for Monday, August 3.
