GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) The Atlantic Coast Conference is keeping its league football schedule at eight games.

The conference issued a statement Wednesday saying its athletic directors voted to continue playing an eight-game schedule with at least one game against a power-conference opponent.

The ACC had been considering expanding the conference schedule to nine games, but did not reach a decision during discussions two months ago.

Schools that play yearly rivalry games against Southeastern Conference teams preferred an eight-game schedule because that would give them some flexibility and keep the schedule balanced with four home games and four on the road.

Those that preferred a nine-game schedule argued there might not be enough nonconference opponents with openings to fill those schedules.
