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.

    Looks like a long season with 2 bye weeks.

    Do the pack ever play an non conference road game? Are they broke?

  • CarolinaHurricanes87 Feb 25, 3:41 p.m.

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

    Looks like a lot of winnable games for the Pack this year. I hate playing Maryland the last game of the year, I personally hope this is the last time we ever play them.

    Concerning Swofford: It's completely absurd that someone who attended and was long- term AD at a member institution (UNC 1980-1997) is the AD of that conference. That is the ultimate conflict of interest and should not be allowed in college athletics.

    Don't know what you're complaining about if you're a State fan. The only tough game I see is that game at Wake. The rest of the tough games are in Raleigh and you have FSU's number...

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

    Since a majority of the non-conference schools they played in the past are multi-directional...they might get lost. So....no.

    Uh yeah they do. Last season at Uconn. And the season before that at Cincy.

    Swofford? Bahahahaha!!!

  • Wolfpack Fanatic Feb 25, 4:43 p.m.

    I thought Maryland was going to Big 10 or is that not a conference game?
