Why do the ACC’s top 10 teams have the highest average wins?
- by admin
The ACC’s five-team playoff system provides each team with a seed, a number of regular-season games, a pool of conference play and a conference title.
In 2018, the ACC added a second seed to the top of the standings, which will be used for the conference championship and bowl games.
The seeds will be determined in a three-way tiebreaker, based on each team’s overall record.
The first four teams to reach the four-team finals will play for a conference championship.
The final four teams will play in a four-way playoff for the ACC title.
The ACC’s playoff system gives each team a seed in the first round.
Each team plays four games in a conference tournament.
The teams who finish first in their conference will face each other in the semifinals.
The ACC champion will face the runner-up in the conference tournament for a second and third-place tiebreaker.
The winner of the conference title game will play the winner of each of the remaining three games in the ACC tournament.
In the postseason, the four teams playing in the championship game will face off for the title, which the winner gets to play in the NCAA Tournament.
If no teams make the championship, the top seed from each conference will play against the top four seed from the conference that finishes first.
If the top two teams from each division finish first and second, the winner will play either the winner from the division that finished third or the third-seeded team from the fourth division.
