Barry Jacobs takes a look at 30-win seasons by ACC teams.
|Duke||8||1986, 1991*, 1992*, 1998, 1999, 2001*, 2002, 2004|
|No. Carolina||6||1957*, 1982*, 1987, 1993*, 1998, 2005*|
|* Won NCAA title.|
- Since Georgia Tech joined the league in 1980, a period of 26 seasons, 116 ACC squads won at least 20 games in a year. Of that group, only 15 (13 percent) won 30 or more games.
- Duke has more 30-win seasons (8) since 1980 than the rest of the ACC combined (7).
- Nine of the 30-victory teams (of 17) won NCAA titles. Two others reached the national championship game.
- Since 1954, the first season of ACC competition, Boston College (which joined the league in 2005-06), Clemson, Florida State (which joined in 1992), Georgia Tech (1980), Miami (2005), Virginia Tech (2005) and Wake Forest have yet to post a 30-win record.
- There were only two 30-win seasons by ACC teams prior to 1982. UNC was 32-0 in 1957 and N.C. State was 30-1 in 1974. Both won NCAA titles.
- No NCAA Division I team has played more than 40 games in a season.
