The 2013 ACC football schedule has officially been released, meaning we finally have some clarity as to whom the conference’s 14 teams will face-off with from week-to-week next season. So with that in mind, we thought it would be an entertaining undertaking to rank all 112 ACC football games for 2013 because, well… it’s the offseason.
Today, we take a quick glance at numbers 90 through 81; the first group in our countdown made up entirely of FBS opponents. Just one conference game in this collection, and it’s only there because of how lopsided the result’s likely to be.
#86: Virginia Tech Hokies at East Carolina Pirates (Saturday, September 14)
#83: Wake Forest Demon Deacons at Army Black Knights (Saturday, September 21)
#81: Florida State Seminoles at Boston College Eagles (Saturday, September 28)

- The 10 games appear on six different dates, with none appearing after October 5

- Breakdown of non-conference opponent home states: New York (2), Alabama (1), Florida (1), Indiana (1), Michigan (1), North Carolina (1), Tennessee (1), West Virginia (1)
