I want UNC-Wake and Miami’s games against BC, Pitt, and Cuse to be added to the ACC protected football game list so that the NC schools can take turns playing each other on Thanksgiving weekend and BC and Pitt alternating having road games at Cuse (dome) or Miami (warm weather) as their season finales.

Meanwhile, four other games involving ACC teams would rotate on and off the Thanksgiving weekend schedule. In odd years we’d see California at SMU and Notre Dame at Stanford, and in even years UCLA at California and Stanford at SMU. These games would be played earlier in the season at the opposite locations.

This would leave UVA-VT and the four ACC-SEC games as the only games involving ACC teams played every season on Thanksgiving weekend.

Main reason I want Notre Dame-USC rivalry to end & last thing I want to see as a Northwestern Wildcats,Illinois Fighting Illini & Michigan Wolverines Fan is USC playing in cold Weather & same thing for UCLA & I really like to see Notre Dame-USC end this year.

Cold Weather & Football DO Not go together.

Here is My educated guess for ACC Thanksgiving weekend schedule November 28th-29th 2025.

Notre Dame at Miami

Pittsburgh at Syracuse

SMU at Boston College

Duke at North Carolina

California at Stanford

North Carolina State at Wake Forest

Virginia Tech at Virginia

Georgia at Georgia Tech

Florida State at Florida

Kentucky at Louisville

Clemson at South Carolina
