FINALLY! After a long wait and a lot of shuffling around, the ACC has released its complete 2013 football schedule. No real surprises, though it’s interesting that both NC State and Florida State have bye weeks prior to facing Clemson. Also strange that Syracuse would schedule Wagner for its final out-of-conference opponent, considering that the Seahawks do not count toward the Orange’s bowl eligibility (the Northeast Conference does not offer the minimum 57 scholarships).
Rather than posting the entire schedule in one long, arduous article, I wanted to highlight the league’s Thanksgiving weekend games as an additional point of conversation. As SB Nation’s BC Interruption has noted, the ACC’s final weekend scheduling could use a bit of improvement, so I was curious what the scheduling office has done to remedy that situation. A look at that weekend’s slate of games:
Boston College at Syracuse
Clemson at South Carolina
Florida State at Florida
Maryland at NC State
