It’s rivalry week in College Football.
While the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) championship game has already been played between No. 7 Clemson and No. 18 North Carolina, multiple programs in the league compete for bragging rights against in-state rivals or conference foes over Thanksgiving weekend.

Here is the full conference schedule.
No. 7 Clemson (10-1) vs South Carolina (7-4) – Nov 26, 12 noon
After Tennessee’s 63-38 loss to South Carolina, the College Football Playoff remains a possibility for head coach Dabo Swinney and the Tigers.
Since taking over Clemson in 2008, Swinney is 8-5 against the Gamecocks and has not lost since 2013.
Kentucky (6-5) vs. Louisville (7-4) – Nov. 26, 3 p.m
The Cardinals enter the 34th meeting of the Governor’s Cup after winning four of their last five games, including a 25-10 victory over then No. 24 NC State.
The Wildcats have won three straight in this series, including last season’s 52-21 victory.
Boston College (3-8) vs. Syracuse (6-5) – Nov. 26, 7:30 p.m
It was a story of two halves for the Dutch in 2022. They started 6-0, but lost five consecutive games, including four to ACC opponents.
Meanwhile, Boston College has been eliminated from bowl eligibility and is playing redshirt-less senior quarterback Phil Jurkovec.
No. 18 North Carolina (9-2) vs. NC State (7-4) – Nov. 25, 3:30 p.m
The Tar Heels still have a shot at capturing the ACC Championship, but all outside hopes of making the College Football Playoff vanished after the 21-17 home loss to Georgia Tech on November 19.
NC State dropped out of the AP Top 25 due to losing 25-10 to Louisville, but has won four of the last six in this series.

Duke (7-4) vs. Wake Forest (7-4) – Nov. 26, 3:30 p.m
Looking at the offensive performance of both schools in 2022, this could be a high-scoring affair. Wake Forest averages 37.4 points per game, coming off a 45-point performance in his victory over Syracuse. The Blue Devils average 33.2 points per game and have scored 35 or more points in four ACC games this season.
Wake Forest has a 53.1% chance of winning according to ESPN’s Matchup Predictor.
Virginia Tech (3-8) vs. Virginia (3-7) – November 26, TBD
No decision has yet been made on whether or not to play this match.
Virginia canceled last week’s game against Coastal Carolina due to the deaths on November 20 of three players: junior wide receiver Lavel Davis Jr., junior wide receiver Devin Chandler and junior defensive end D’Sean Perry.
No. 1 Georgia (11-0) vs. Georgia Tech (5-6) – November 26, 12 noon
For Georgia, this game should serve as a prelude to a matchup against No. 6 LSU in the SEC Championship.
Georgia Tech upset No. 18 North Carolina last week but needs one more win to qualify for bowl.
This rivalry has been skewed in recent years. The Bulldogs have won every meeting since 2017 (no game in 2020), outscoring the Yellow Jackets 180-35.
Miami (5-6) v Pittsburgh (7-4) – Nov. 26, 8 p.m
Through eight games, Pittsburgh sat at .500. Since then, under head coach Pat Narduzzi, they have won three straight wins and secured bowl eligibility.
If head coach Mario Cristobal is to make it to the postseason in his first year in Miami, he will have to lead his program to victory in the final home game. They lost 40-10 to No. 7 Clemson in Week 12.
