Yahoo! Sports’ Take On ACC Schedules

Game of the year: Clemson at Florida State, Sept. 22. This should determine who wins the Atlantic Division championship. Clemson should have the best offense in the league; FSU will have the best defense. Clemson has won four of the past six and six of the past nine in the series.
Toughest schedule: Duke. There are three easy non-conference games at home. But that's it for the good news. The other non-conference matchup is at Stanford. The Blue Devils go on the road to face Florida State, Georgia Tech and Virginia Tech. And each of the conference home games is difficult: Clemson, Miami, North Carolina and Virginia. Have fun, David Cutcliffe.
Easiest schedule: North Carolina. There is a tough non-conference test against Big East preseason favorite Louisville. But the other non-conference games aren't tough. The Heels don't play Clemson and Florida State, the best teams in the league. The toughest Coastal Division games are at home (Miami and Virginia Tech). In addition, the Heels end the season with three of their final four games at home.

10. Florida State at Miami, Oct. 20
