ATLANTA -- The Atlantic Coast Conference released the eight in-conference opponents that the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets will face in the 2013 football season on Friday. The full schedule, and the exact dates on games, won’t be released until later.
Georgia Tech will host Pittsburgh, Syracuse, North Carolina and Virginia Tech at Bobby Dodd Stadium.
The Yellow Jackets will go on the road to face Duke, Miami, Virginia and Clemson. This will be the second year in a row Georgia Tech travels to face Clemson, a team that finished the 2012 season with a Chick fil-A Bowl win over LSU and was ranked No. 9 in the USA Today/Coaches Poll and No. 11 by the Associated Press.
Newcomers to the ACC, Pitt and Syracuse, will both travel to Atlanta to face the Yellow Jackets. Georgia Tech is one of two teams (Florida State is the other) that will play both new ACC additions.
This year’s ACC schedule is an entirely new scheduling model that is not based off the previous schedule. The current scheduling model means each team will play six teams within their division each year, plus one game against a primary crossover opponent and one rotating crossover opponent. Tech’s primary crossover is Clemson, while Syracuse is the rotating crossover in the 2013 season.
