We have a schedule!

NCAA Basketball: Duke at Virginia Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

With the season starting two weeks from tomorrow, the ACC finally released the 2020-21 schedule. Mark Packer and Wes Durham announced the entire conference slate on Tuesday morning’s Packer and Durham on the ACC Network. Each team is playing 20 conference games, with ACC play kicking off on December 16.

It’s still unclear how — and how dramatically — the season will change as a result of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The Cavaliers finished 15-5 in ACC play last season, and was riding an eight game winning streak before the postseason was canceled on March 12, 2020.

Virginia will start off with Wake Forest on the road on December 16, then continue the road trip to South Bend to play Notre Dame. The Hoos get Florida State, North Carolina, and Duke just one time in the regular season, with only the Tar Heels at home in Charlottesville.

Six of the final 10 games for the Hoos will be on the road, with Virginia closing the regular season at Louisville on March 6. The ACC tournament is scheduled to take place in Washington, DC, March 9-13.
