Can This Year's Iteration of North Carolina v. NC State Live Up to Last Year's Thriller?

Can This Year’s Iteration of North Carolina v. NC State Live Up to Last Year’s Thriller?

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 look at numbers 20 through 11; the real meat of the ACC schedule overall. While most of these games highlight rematches from some great 2012 contests, there’s also a good deal of new matchups — some due to kickoff classics, and others to renewed rivalries.

#20: NC State Wolfpack at Wake Forest Demon Deacons (Saturday, October 5)

#19: Duke Blue Devils at North Carolina Tar Heels (Saturday, November 30)

#18: Virginia Tech Hokies at Boston College Eagles (Saturday, November 2)

#17: Florida State Seminoles at Pittsburgh Panthers (Monday, September 2)

#16: Florida Gators at Miami Hurricanes (Saturday, September 7)

#15: Virginia Tech Hokies vs. Alabama Crimson Tide (Saturday, August 31)

#14: North Carolina Tar Heels at South Carolina Gamecocks (Thursday, August 29)

#13: Notre Dame Fighting Irish at Pittsburgh Panthers (Saturday, November 9)

#12: Virginia Tech Hokies at Miami Hurricanes (Saturday, November 9)

#11: North Carolina Tar Heels at NC State Wolfpack (Saturday, November 2)

Some additional notes on today’s list:

  • The 10 games appear on 8 different dates
  • Breakdown of non-conference opponent leagues: SEC (2), Independent (1)
  • Breakdown of non-conference opponent home states: Alabama (1), Florida (1), Indiana (1)
  • Public vs. private universities: two public, one private

Previously: #112-101, #100-91, #90-81, #80-71, #70-61, #60-51, #50-41, #40-31, #30-21
