Update: The 2023 ACC Championship Game has been set as Florida State will face Louisville at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte on December 2.


Conference realignment has touched every corner of college football and for the ACC, the 2023 season could be the final year of stability before drastic changes of its membership composition are made. The two resident powerhouse in Clemson and Florida State will both try to add another conference title to their trophy case while the chaotic middle class of the league could make for an interesting race down the stretch.

What’s notable for this year is that the ACC has abandoned divisions, retiring the Atlantic and Coastal divisions that had existed since 2005. Each team in the league will play an eight-game conference schedule and the two teams that finish with the highest winning percentage in conference play will face each other in the conference championship game

Here are the latest standings in the ACC ahead of the 2023 ACC Championship Game, scheduled to be held at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, NC, on Saturday, December 2.
