On Tuesday, the ACC released its 2016 conference football schedules. Georgia Tech's schedule will look like this:

Date Opponent Location Time
September 3 Boston College Eagles Dublin, Ireland 7:30am ET
September 10 Mercer Bears Atlanta, GA TBA
September 17 Vanderbilt Commodores Atlanta, GA TBA
September 22 (Thursday) Clemson Tigers Atlanta, GA 7:30pm
October 1 Miami Hurricanes Atlanta, GA TBA
October 8 Pittsburgh Panthers Pittsburgh, PA TBA
October 15 Georgia Southern Eagles Atlanta, GA TBA
October 22 BYE WEEK --- ---
October 29 Duke Blue Devils Atlanta, GA TBA
November 5 North Carolina Tar Heels Chapel Hill, NC TBA
November 12 Virginia Tech Hokies Blacksburg, VA TBA
November 19 Virginia Cavaliers (Senior Day) Atlanta, GA TBA
November 26 georgia bulldogs Athens, GA TBA
December 3 ACC Championship Game Charlotte, NC TBA

A few noteworthy items here:

  • After beginning the season overseas with a conference opponent, the Jackets return home to Bobby Dodd Stadium for a pair of out-of-conference games. If they manage to win the season-opener, there's a good chance that the Jackets match their win total from last season before the end of September.
  • When Georgia Tech returns home from Dublin, they only play one road game between Labor Day and Halloween. That's...a lot of home games in a row.
  • Three of the final four games are on the road, at North Carolina, at Virginia Tech, and then at georgia. Let's hope Georgia Tech is playing its best ball when November rolls around, because that has all kinds of potential to be a very brutal stretch.
  • Oh, and North Carolina has a bye week prior to playing Georgia Tech. As is tradition.
