CLEMSON, S.C. – The Atlantic Coast Conference announced Clemson’s matchups for the 2014-15 and 2015-16 seasons Tuesday. The 2014-15 season marks the first of a 12-year schedule rotation during which teams that are not partners play five years at home only; five years on the road only; and two years both home and road.

Clemson continues to face both Florida State and Georgia Tech as its primary partners, while adding NC State and Notre Dame next season for the home-and-home series. The full rotations for the next two seasons are listed below.

2014-15 rotation

Home/Road: Florida State, Georgia Tech, NC State, Notre Dame

Home: Boston College, North Carolina, Syracuse, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest

Notes on Clemson’s 2014-15 ACC schedule rotation

• The Tigers face five teams that advanced to the 2014 NCAA Tournament on the road, including four of the five road-only opponents.

• Clemson faces four coaches who are in the Naismith Hall of Fame, two at home (Jim Boeheim, Roy Williams) and two on the road (Mike Krzyzewski, Rick Pitino).

• The Tigers play Louisville for the first time since a postseason NIT meeting in Freedom Hall on March 20, 2006. The Cardinals now play in the KFC Yum! Center.

• Syracuse returns to Littlejohn Coliseum for the first time since the 2007 postseason NIT, when the Tigers defeated the Orange 74-70 to punch their ticket to New York City for the tournament semifinals.

• Notre Dame comes to Clemson for the first time in basketball, men’s or women’s. The Fighting Irish outlasted the Tigers in double overtime this past season in the first meeting between the two programs.

• The three teams featuring new head coaches – Boston College, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest – all come to Littlejohn Coliseum for the only meeting with Clemson.
