ACC releases complete 2013 football schedule

Posted February 25, 2013

— Duke will be the first of the Triangle football teams to get their ACC portion of the season started in 2013 when they play Georgia Tech at Wallace-Wade Stadium on Sept. 14. NC State will host Clemson on Thursday, Sept. 19. Then, two days later, North Carolina will play at Georgia Tech to open their ACC slate.

Returning to tradition, UNC and Duke will close the season with each other in Durham. UNC, Duke and NC State will all play each other once. For NC State and Duke, it will be their first meeting since 2009.

Former NC State head coach Tom O'Brien, who is now on the staff at Virginia, will not get a reunion game this season as part of the rotating crossover schedule between the Atlantic and Coastal Divisions.

Newcomer Pittsburgh will get their conference play started early with a Sept. 2 date against Florida State. Syracuse will have to wait a little longer as their ACC opener isn't until Oct. 5 against Clemson.

Each team will have two bye weeks in the 14-week regular season. NC State will play eight home games while UNC and Duke will each play seven.

    The same way Swofford manages to give UNC a bye week before playing GT almost every year.

    — Posted by NCSU84

    UNC has won 2 of the last 15 against GT in football so even if Swofford did manipulate the schedule this way, it obviously doesn't work. I would argue that if three of your first five games are at South Carolina, at Georgia Tech, and at Virginia Tech, then you probably deserve a bye in there somewhere.

    Carry on with the conspiracy theories though; they are certainly entertaining.

    Why do Duke and NC Central play more times than Duke and NC State?

    — Posted by cjw6105

    It's black history month and you ask a question like that? shame

    — Posted by uncsuckz

    Duke and NCCU play because its a community thing - good for Duke, good for Central, and good for Durham.

    It really is that simple.

  • kornfan2448 Feb 26, 8:26 a.m.

    I'm sick of the schedule being made by a UNC fan. Swofford is a worthless POS

    — Posted by CarolinaHurricanes87

    Tell me: What isn't a conspiracy by UNC against NC State?

    — Posted by hi_i_am_wade

    I know, right? Their first four games are home games, and five of their first six. They get a bye after two should-win games before their first conference game, which is a home game. They only leave the state twice and not until almost November for the first time. State fans should be ecstatic about that schedule.

    As for UNC not playing FSU and Clemson again, they're in different divisions, just like State won't be playing GT and VT again.

    I learned that during the OJ trial in '94(?). That was sad from a purely judicial standpoint. I'm not gonna bytch though; my attorney has dug me out a few times, although only for speeding, etc.

    You're probably right about Pistorius. These days, it's not so much a matter of innocence or guilt, as much as it is about hiring the best lawyer money can buy.

  • Gunnstigator Feb 26, 7:10 a.m.

    I don't remember having TWO byes in the past, but I do like the way it breaks up the season, giving the guys time to heal from injuries. I also like having Duke as the last game on the schedule, like the way it used to be.
