Border Wars:

The First 50 Years Of ACC Gridiron Competiton

Border Wars tells the true and complete story of the Atlantic Coast Conference's first half century of gridiron competition. From Maryland's national championship in the inaugural season of 1953 to the league's recent expansion to twelve members, Border Wars takes an in-depth journey with the ACC from its humble beginnings as a sleepy Southern athletic union to its current position as one of the most competitive and influential affiliations in the entire NCAA. Over four hundred pages of content combined with high-quality photography brings back the glory of the legendary coaches and players of the ACC's first fifty years of football, including Jim Tatum, Frank Howard, Bill Murray, Brian Piccolo, Randy White, Ted Brown, Lawrence Taylor, Charlie Ward, Bobby Bowden, and many others!

"K. Adam Powell, who describes himself simply as a young fan, has spent the past two years doing extensive research for Border Wars from the very beginning until the present. The familiarity he has gained with this subject even allows him the luxury of looking into the future."

— Woody Durham, Tar Heel Sports Network "Great stuff. I think the ACC finally emerges from the shadows of its stellar history and image as a basketball-only conference."

— Dr. Jerry Punch, Sideline Reporter for ESPN Thursday Night Football
