Border Wars: The First Fifty Years of Atlantic Coast Conference Football
In May of 1953, seven institutions Clemson University, Duke University, the University of Maryland, the University of North Carolina, North Carolina State University, Wake Forest University, and the University of South Carolina voted to break away from the Southern Conference and form a new league, the Atlantic Coast Conference. That same year, they were joined by the University of Virginia. Fifty years later, ACC football is still going strong, as chronicled in this definitive history by K. Adam Powell. From kickoff to touchdown, Powell presents an in-depth look at the players, games, and memorable moments that have shaped the first half-century of Atlantic Coast Conference football. Border Wars covers all of the important details-including the conference's founding, its five national championship teams, and even the scandals that have rocked programs at Clemson and Florida State. The book also provides the coaching records and season standings of ACC football teams from 1953 to 2002, making this the ideal reference source for ACC fans. Includes 16 photos."
