SEC To Play Eight-Game, 6-1-1 Football Schedule In 2014 And 2015

Greg M. Cooper-US PRESSWIRE

Nice knowing ya, Pittsburgh and Miami.

SEC commissioner Mike Slive announced that the conference will play an eight game, 6-1-1 football schedule for the 2014 season and likely 2015 as well. Cause if it ain't broke for Alabama, Auburn, Florida or LSU ...

With the SEC momentarily shutting the door on an expanded, nine-game conference slate, you can bet that the ACC will stay at eight games and the 6-1-1 scheduling format going forward as well. Nice knowing ya, Pittsburgh and Miami.

With the 6-1-1 format, each school plays six games within the division, one permanent cross-division rival and one rotating intra-division game. This schedule format preserves annual rivalry games between Miami-Florida State and Virginia ... Louisville? Short of division realignment or modifying or eliminating the cross-division rivalry setup, this means that BC will play familiar foes Pittsburgh and Miami once every six seasons (and play host once every 12 years).

This sucks for Boston College fans, but BC-Pitt and BC-Miami are hardly the only casualties of this scheduling model. Not by a long shot. Here are the top 15 casualties of the ACC's division alignment and current scheduling model.
