ACC 2013 Spring Practice & Spring Game Schedules

Football's on the Horizon... Spring Practices Start Next Week!

Football’s on the Horizon? The ACC’s Spring Practices Start Next Week

This year’s spring practices and games bring with them some feeble hope that maybe we can get through the offseason with some sanity left, especially as conference realignment rumors continue to come in waves. While we don’t want to bill these early glimpses at the 2013 season as anything more than what they are — practice sessions and scrimmages — it’s still worth keeping an eye out for a glimpse of some of the trends we may notice at the onset of the regular season. Below we’ve included dates for the start of spring practices for each ACC team, as well as spring game dates. We’ll be compiling previews for spring practice next month too, so be sure to check back for those.

Boston College Eagles — Practice Begins: February 28 | Spring Game: April 13

Clemson Tigers — Practice Begins: March 6 | Spring Game: April 13

Duke Blue Devils — Practice Begins: March 4 | Spring Game: April 13

Florida State Seminoles — Practice Begins: March 20 | Spring Game: April 13

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets — Practice Begins: March 25 | Spring Game: April 19

Louisville Cardinals — Practice Begins: March 20 | Spring Game: April 13

Maryland Terrapins — Practice Begins: March 2 | Spring Game: April 12

Miami Hurricanes — Practice Begins: March 2 | Spring Game: April 13

NC State Wolfpack — Practice Begins: March 19 | Spring Game: April 20

North Carolina Tar Heels — Practice Begins: March 6 | Spring Game: April 13

Pittsburgh Panthers — Practice Begins: March 5 | Spring Game: April 12

Syracuse Orange — Practice Begins: March 19 | Spring Game: April 20

Virginia Cavaliers — Practice Begins: March 18 | Spring Game: April 6

Virginia Tech Hokies — Practice Begins: March 27 | Spring Game: April 20

Wake Forest Demon Deacons — Practice Begins: March 19 | Spring Game: April 20

Some stray observations:

  • Eight teams hold their respective spring games on April 13.
  • Another five hold theirs on April 20… let the 4/20 jokes commence (what, we’re not doing TCU jokes anymore?).
  • While alphabetically, the schedule starts out pretty uniform — similar start dates and spring practice days — it obviously takes a turn before simply ending up all over the place. There is where an ACC Network would help. Take a look at the Pac-12′s spring schedules; everything’s uniform, and every game’s televised.
  • Boston College is the only school to start in February; and Virginia wraps up earliest, with an April 6 spring game.

  1. I want to apologize to you John for my comments on SB nation. The ACC/FSU relationship is very complicated. We are in the South East. We are a football school. We are surrounded by SEC schools. Completely surrounded. I dont know if other schools in the ACC except Clemson understands this.

    I subscribed to your blog and I will read it and try to contribute in a more meaningful way.

    Good Luck! And again, I feel like a dick for my comments and I realized it as soon as I hit post.

    Best,

    • Hey, no worries at all. You’re one of the few that’s ever really been apologetic for tossing a few daggers on there, and overall, I’ve seen much worse at SB Nation. As I’m sure you’ve see yourself, some commenters over there (and here too, sometimes) are ruthless.

      Thanks for subscribing, and totally agree with you on FSU, Clemson. They’re in a predicament, one that maybe Georgia Tech can also sympathize with a bit too. It’s tough to feel pressure from all sides, despite previous, present and future success.

      Looking forward to your commentary around here! We need some more input from FSU!
