The Eagles will play their remaining 14 conference games against rotating opponents with five home-only games and five road-only games.
In football, the ACC elected to stay with an eight-game conference schedule. BC will play the other six teams in the division, one crossover rival, and one rotating team from the other division.
In baseball, the ACC announced that beginning in 2014 the championship will feature 10 teams in a six-day event that begins as double-elimination and shifts to single-elimination for the semifinals and finals.
