The Film Breakdown, ACC Edition: ‘Cuse vs. UNC, Duke vs. Notre Dame, Ga. Tech vs. FSU

We deep-dive three ACC games on the opening weekend of play for a Power Five league, and make some choices about what we think will happen based on matchups.

The ACC is back in action, and we decided to take a look at the three games that interested us the most ahead of the unusual 2020 college football season. Seth Varnadore and I pulled some film for three different games, how the teams might attack each other, and most importantly: Who will cover and will the totals go over?

* Syracuse vs. North Carolina in a battle of two teams that went in opposite directions in 2019.

* Duke vs. Notre Dame in the first-ever conference game for the Fighting Irish.

* Georgia Tech vs. Florida State as the last-place team in the ACC preseason poll faces Mike Norvell in his first game as a Power Five head coach.

We had some fun with this, and there’s plenty of good information for those that need a refresh on what these teams should look like in 2020.

Check out our breakdown of some ACC Football for Week 2 of the 2020 college football season:
