     Home | Athletic Conference | Atlantic Coast Conference

The Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) is a collegiate athletic league in the United States. Founded in 1953 in Greensboro, North Carolina, the ACC sanctions competition in twenty-five sports in Division I of the National Collegiate Athletic Association for its twelve member universities. Football teams participate in the Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS), the higher of two levels of Division I college football.

The ACC is considered one of the six "power conferences," and the ACC football champion receives an automatic bid to one of the Bowl Championship Series games each season. It is best known, though, for its success in men's college basketball.
