ACC releases 2013 football match-ups

Posted January 11, 2013

The Atlantic Coast Conference released parts of the football schedule for 2013 Friday morning, informing teams and fans where games will be played but not when. With the addition of Syracuse and Pitt in 2013, this year's schedule is comprised from an entirely new scheduling model, a move similar to the previous expansion model in 2006.

Each ACC team will play eight conference games (four home and four away), six games within their division (three home, three away) and two games (one home, one away) with crossover opponents from the opposite division.

The new model of conference opponents will result in repeat site games in order to balance home and away schedules. This year, taking into account the existing schedule, there will be a total of just six repeat site games, all limited to the 2013 football season. ACC Logo 2013 ACC football opponents

The games with opponents traveling to the same site as in 2012 are: Duke at Wake Forest; Duke at Virginia Tech; Miami at Duke; Georgia Tech at Clemson; Virginia Tech at Boston College; and Virginia Tech at Miami.

The complete football schedule, including specific dates, is scheduled to be released in early February, the league said. 

North Carolina

North Carolina hosts Duke and Miami and goes on the road to face NC State and Virginia Tech in conference play. Before league play starts, the Tar Heels will kick off the season with an Aug. 29 trip to South Carolina to face the Gamecocks. That game will be broadcast on ESPN. UNC also hosts East Carolina on Sept. 28 and Old Dominion on Oct. 12.

The Duke Blue Devils, coming off a 6-6 regular season that included a bowl trip for the first time since 1994, will face Miami and Pitt in Durham and North Carolina and Virginia Tech on the road. Out of conference, David Cutcliffe and Co. will visit Memphis on Sept. 7 and host Navy on Oct. 12.

The Wolfpack will open the season with non-conference games against Louisiana Tech (Aug. 31), Richmond (Sept. 7) and Central Michigan (Sept. 14).

    Steve Logan said today that SEC players could not afford to leave early for the NFL. They would have to take a pay cut.

    you make a bold statement when you say Duke is comptetative now.The best they can do in fifteen years is a 6-7 record. It will be back to the 3-9's next year. Duke could not win the Ivy League

    I'd be curious to know how Wake Forest fans feel about this scheduling model. While they now get to play Duke every year, they will only be able to get UNC to Winston-Salem once every twelve years. That game has always been a big draw for them.

    +1,000,000 Get Em Pickled Herring. Don't forget the beating the new ACC team Louisville put on the Gators. Bama will have some down years...just ask USC.

    Looks like moo u is still trying to weasel out of its game with ECU.

    There were 5 SEC teams that were clearly better than the ACC's best this season.

    If you ranked the SEC and ACC together, the probable order of the best ten teams would be Alabama, Georgia, Texas A&M, South Carolina, Florida, Clemson, Florida State, LSU, Vanderbilt and UNC. With all due respect to the above post, I do not think adding Syracuse and Pittsburgh will help the ACC's overall football rating one iota.

    What will help the ACC is for the league to quit playing OOC cupcakes so much and start playing more teams from the SEC and Big 12. Maybe more games vs the BCS leagues would help bring better recruits to the ACC. And playing these two best conferences in September instead of at the end of a long season would give the ACC a better chance to win a few big OOC games before being beaten down. Many ACC teams lack SEC depth and the last thing they need is a good SEC bowl opponent.

    The ACC is more than just 10 years away from a national title in football. Try light years instead.

    No doubt the SEC is the best football conference. The ACC did just as good percentage wise in the bowl games as the SEC. SEC 6-3, ACC 4-2. Head to head bowl match-ups 1-1. While the SEC has Bama and 3-4 more dominate teams and the ACC really only had 2 pretty good teams this year, head to head and wins versus loses in bowl games, the SEC didn't do any better than the ACC. And if UNC would have been bowl eligible this year, they would have stood a chance at beating a SEC team in a bowl match-up. As a conference the SEC is the strongest conference in the nation, but take away Bama, they are much better than any of the other SEC teams also, the SEC didn't do any better than the ACC in bowls. With the addition of Cuse and Pitt next year, the ACC will close the gap some.

    I have the balls but not the money!

  • dwr1964 Jan 11, 2013

    I accept.... 10 yr cushion, i like my chances and I will open a joint account, $2,000.00 each. The account will be listed as "and", not "or". Neither of us will be able to touch the money, unless we are both present. There will be a contract, with very specific terms. When I see proof that you actually have the cash RIGHT NOW, we can talk. A typical gentleman's wager. No more, no less.
