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.
