The past year has been a huge one for ACC football, thanks mostly to its commissioner, John Swofford, who engineered expansion, negotiated the conference’s proper place in the future playoff system and a grant of media rights package to secure the membership.

During July’s gathering of media covering the conference, Swofford boasted that within the ACC footprint lies the largest TV audience and most population of any of the five power conferences in the country.
