The Atlantic Coast Conference is composed of fifteen schools overall. The ACC is in all sports as it represents each school fully. This conference has always been known as one of the best and it almost always lives up to those standards. One of the reasons I love it so much is because in it, is my favorite team, the North Carolina Tar Heels. The Tar Heels basketball team are now #2 in the ACC Conference, but #6 overall. Even their football team did very well. They were almost into the playoffs for college football until one of their fellow ACC teams beat them. The ACC has six top 25 teams in their conference. That is one of the reasons the ACC is known as one of the best. This conference was founded in 1953 in Sedgefield, North Carolina. Many conferences are put together by enrollment numbers, but not the ACC. The ACC is put together by the location, which is on the Atlantic Coast even though not all the schools are right on the coast. It is also based on the fact that all of them are in the Atlantic Coast Conference Academic Consortium.
