ACC Announces 2005 Conference Slate

Nov. 10, 2004

ATLANTA–Georgia Tech’s Atlantic Coast Conference football schedule in 2005 will feature the same opponents as this season, with one exception, the league office announced Wednesday.

Tech’s 2005 schedule will feature home games against Clemson, North Carolina, NC State and Wake Forest, as well as road games at Duke, Miami, Virginia and Virginia Tech. Wake Forest replaces Maryland, whom the Yellow Jackets defeated earlier this season.

The Jackets also have non-conference games scheduled at Auburn and against Georgia and Connecticut at home in 2005.

The Atlantic Coast Conference released the conference games-only portion of the league’s football schedule for the 2005 season, when Boston College becomes the ACC’s 12th member. The entire 2005 schedule, with dates, will be released after January 15, 2005.

Beginning next season, the ACC will play in football aligned into two six-team divisions – Atlantic and Coastal. Teams will play all five opponents in their division, plus one primary crossover opponent every year and two rotating opponents from the opposite division. The divisional champions will meet in the league’s inaugural football championship game scheduled to be held at the ALLTEL Stadium in Jacksonville, Fla., on Saturday, Dec. 3, 2005.

The primary principles used in determining the 2005 schedule were to fulfill as much as possible the “home-away” situations from the 2004 schedule and eliminate repeat site games from the 2004 season to the 2005 season.
