ACC Football Divisional Tiebreaker

by ACC COMMUNICATIONS

ACC DIVISIONAL TIEBREAKER If more than one team in the same division is tied for the best winning percentage in its Conference games, the procedures listed below will be followed to determine the division’s representative in the ACC Championship Game:

Two-Team Tie:

1. Head-to-head competition between the two tied teams. 2. Win percentage of the tied teams within the division. 3. Head-to-head competition versus the team within the division with the best overall win percentage. (Divisional and non-divisional) and proceeding through the division. Multiple ties within the division will be broken from first-to-last using the league’s tiebreaking procedures. 4. Overall win percentage versus all common non-divisional opponents. 5. Combined win percentage vs. all non-divisional opponents. 6. Win percentage versus common non-divisional opponents based on their order of finish (overall conference win percentage) and proceeding through other common non-divisional teams based upon their divisional order of finish. 7. The tied team with the higher ranking by the Team Rating Score metric provided by SportSource Analytics following the conclusion of regular season games. 8. The representative shall be chosen by a draw as administered by the Commissioner or the Commissioner’s designee.

Three-Team (or More) Team Tie

(Once a team is eliminated from the tie, the tie-breaker procedures restart for the remaining teams. If the three (or more) team tie can be reduced to two teams, the two-team tiebreaker format will then be applied.)

1. Combined head-to-head win percentage among the tied teams. 2. Win percentage of the tied teams within the division. 3. Head-to-head competition versus the team within the division with the best overall (divisional and non-divisional) Conference win percentage, and proceeding through the division. Multiple ties within the division will be broken first to last, using the league’s tie-breaker policies. 4. Combined win percentage versus all common non-divisional opponents. 5. Overall win percentage versus non-divisional opponents. 6. Win percentage versus common non-divisional opponents based upon their order of finish (overall win percentage) and proceeding through other common non-divisional opponents based upon their divisional order of finish. 7. The tied team with the higher ranking by the Team Rating Score metric provided by SportSource Analytics following the conclusion of regular season games. 8. The representative shall be chosen by a draw as administered by the Commissioner or the Commissioner’s designee.
