ACC Announces New Football Scheduling Model

THE FLATS – Georgia Tech football’s Atlantic Coast Conference schedules are set for the next seven seasons, as the ACC has released its new football schedule model to accommodate the additions of Cal, SMU and Stanford to the conference beginning in 2024.

Georgia Tech’s next seven ACC slates feature the Yellow Jackets playing each of the league’s other 16 football members at least twice. The Jackets will play Louisville and Wake Forest five times apiece over the next seven seasons; Boston College, Clemson, Duke, SMU and Virginia Tech four times; Cal, Florida State, Miami (Fla.), Stanford, Syracuse and Pitt three times; and North Carolina and NC State twice.

Tech will not face any of the three new teams to the ACC – Cal, SMU or Stanford – until 2026, when it travels to Stanford for its first ACC game against the Cardinal. In 2027, the Yellow Jackets will meet Cal and SMU for the first time as conference foes, hosting the Golden Bears and traveling to Dallas to face the Mustangs. Georgia Tech will travel to the West Coast only three times over the next seven seasons – 2026 at Stanford, 2028 at Cal and 2030 at Stanford.

The Yellow Jackets’ first slate under the new scheduling model in 2024 includes home games against Duke, Florida State (Aug. 24 in Dublin, Ireland), Miami and NC State and road dates at Louisville, North Carolina, Syracuse and Virginia Tech. Game dates will be announced on Jan. 31, 2024 at 9 p.m. ET on ACC Network’s “ACC Huddle: 2024 Schedule Reveal” special.

ACC teams will continue to play an eight-game conference schedule each season but, for the first time since the league went to an unbalanced schedule in 2004, there will not be an equal number of protected rivalry games that all teams will play on an annual basis. Three teams (Duke, North Carolina and NC State) have three protected rivalries apiece, 11 have two (Boston College, Cal, Florida State, Miami, Pitt, SMU, Stanford, Syracuse, Virginia, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest), one has one (Clemson) and two – Georgia Tech and Louisville – have no designated conference rivals.

The 2023 Yellow Jackets (4-4, 3-2 ACC, alone in fourth place in the 15-team conference standings) return to action on Saturday at 2 p.m. at Virginia. The game will be televised across the nation on The CW (Peachtree TV – Ch. 17 in Atlanta).

Tickets remain for Georgia Tech’s final two home games of the regular season – Nov. 18 versus Syracuse and Nov. 25 against archrival Georgia. Click HERE to purchase tickets online.
