Thursday morning, the ACC released the 2015 football schedule to the media, giving fans an early idea of who will be playing where and when. The Yellow Jackets already knew their non-conference schedule, but now can fill in the gaps with their ACC opponents. The schedule for this coming season is as follows:

Date Opponent Location
September 3 (Thursday) Alcorn State Braves Atlanta, GA
September 12 Tulane Green Wave Atlanta, GA
September 19 Notre Dame Fighting Irish South Bend, IN
September 26 Duke Blue Devils Durham, NC
October 3 North Carolina Tar Heels Atlanta, GA
October 10 Clemson Tigers Clemson, SC
October 17 Pittsburgh Panthers Atlanta, GA
October 24 Florida State Seminoles Atlanta, GA
October 31 Virginia Cavaliers Charlottesville, VA
November 7 BYE ---
November 12 (Thursday) Virginia Tech Hokies Atlanta, GA
November 21 Miami Hurricanes Coral Gables, FL
November 28 georgia bulldogs Atlanta, GA
December 5 ACC Championship Game Charlotte, NC

For those keeping score at home, that's 7 home games for your reigning Orange Bowl Champions, including Thursday night games to start the season against FCS Alcorn State and in November against Virginia Tech. The longest stretch between home games is 21 days, between the Tulane game and North Carolina game.

One thing is for sure -- the strength of schedule here will be high. The Jackets are playing 10 Power-5 opponents, including 8 ACC teams and one semi-ACC team (Notre Dame).

We'll be back in a little bit with some analysis, but for now, what are your thoughts on this schedule?
