Ah true. I was just looking at from a fans perspective


and how schools rank their conference rivalries. I would think most Hokie fans would agree that GT's main ACC rival is Clemson. So if they want GT to give up playing its main ACC rival annually, then how would they feel if other ACC fans asked VT to do the same. You could say that 4 of the 7 pairings involve primary conference rivalries in some fashion. The 4 NC schools are kinda funky since I don't think they all agree on who their top rival is; UNC would say Duke (primarily for basketball and maybe football), but NC State would say UNC. Wake is in the same boat as NC State. The reason I said maybe for football for Duke-UNC is because there were some years UNC-NC State was a bigger football rivalry even though UNC-Duke play for the Victory Bell (I think).
