ACC Football Enjoys a Perfect Day

 

Saturday, September 6, 2014 was one for the record books for ACC Football.

  • The ACC finished the day a perfect 11-0, including Virginia Tech's road win over No. 8 Ohio State.

  • The 11-0 record is an ACC record for the most nonconference games ever won on a single day and a single weekend. The ACC had previously won eight nonconference games in a single day on September 12, 2009 and August 31, 2013. The league won 10 nonconference games in a weekend on September 2-6, 2010.

  • Virginia Tech's win over No. 8 Ohio State is the first road victory over a nonconference Top 10 opponent since Florida State defeated No. 7 BYU, 54-28 on September 19, 2009 in Provo, Utah. That win was also the last time an unranked ACC team defeated a nonconference Top 10 team on the road.
