The ACC will eliminate divisions starting in 2023 and move to a 3-5-5 scheduling structure, the conference announced Tuesday.

Under the new format from 2023-26, each team will play three primary opponents every year and face the other 10 teams twice over a four-year cycle, with the matchup alternating between home and away.

Commissioner Jim Phillips said the scheduling model will provide "significant enhancements" for the schools and conference, pointing to student-athletes' ability to compete against every school during the four-year format.

Here are every ACC school's primary opponents from 2023-26:
