The 2016 football schedule for Georgia Tech and the rest of the ACC was officially finalized yesterday afternoon, including dates for each conference game. Tech's schedule is yet again a bit disappointing, with a number of issues once again proving that the ACC is not overly concerned with what the school down in Atlanta desires. Let's take a quick look at a few of the most glaring problems:
- Georgia Tech plays Clemson on short rest. The Jackets and Tigers will meet just five days after Tech's game against Vanderbilt.
- The mix of home and away game is horrible. Tech will play four of the first five ACC games following their trip to Ireland at Bobby Dodd Stadium and then finish the season with three of four on the road.
- Three conference teams have a bye prior to facing Georgia Tech.
