2013 Home ACC Schedule

The Atlantic Coast Conference released the teams on each school's schedule on Friday for the 2013 football season. We will not get the dates of the games until February but we did learn the teams on each schedule. Today we look at a capsule of the ACC teams coming to Death Valley next season. Tomorrow we will take a capsule look at the upcoming ACC road games for the Tigers. Thursday we will preview the out of conference games on the 2013 schedule.

2012 Total Offense:471 19th

2012 Rushing Offense:206 24th

2012 Passing Offense:265 39th

2012 Scoring Defense:14.71 6th

2012 Total Defense:254 2nd

2012 Rushing Defense:92 3rd

2012 Passing Defense:161 1st

Key Personnel Losses:Xavier Rhodes (CB), Bjoern Werner (DE), Menelik Watson (OL), E.J. Manuel (QB), Rodney Smith (WR), Chris Thompson (RB), Lonnie Pryor (RB), Brandon Jenkins (DE), Anthony McCloud (DT), Everett Dawkins (DT), Nick Moody (LB), Vince Williams (LB)

Notes:The Seminoles will look different next season on the sidelines with five new assistant coaches. Clint Trickett has the inside track on the starting QB job. The offense returns most of the stars at RB, TE, WR and four returners on the offensive line. The defenses loses a lot but still returns All-ACC candidates like Edwards, Jernigan, Goldman, Jones, Joyner, Waisome and Darby.

Team:Georgia Tech

2012 Record:7-7, ACC 5-4

2012 Wins:Presbyterian, Virginia, Boston College, Maryland, North Carolina, Duke, Southern Cal

2012 Losses:Virginia Tech, Miami, Middle Tennessee, Clemson, BYU, Georgia, Florida State

2012 Scoring Offense:33.57 34th

2012 Total Offense:441 35th

2012 Passing Defense:229 58th

Key Personnel Losses:Tevin Washington (QB), Omoregie Uzzi (OL), Orwin Smith (RB), Izaan Cross (DT), TJ Barnes (DT), Rod Sweeting (DB)

Key Personnel Returners:Vad Lee (QB), David Sims (RB), Jay Finch (C) and three other starting OL, Jeremiah Attaochu (LB), Louis Young (CB), Isaiah Johnson (DB), Jamea Thomas (DB).

Notes:Tech brings back Ted Roof to runs its defense that should be better. The secondary should be among the best in the league. On offense, Lee has the most experience among the candidates to replace Washington at quarterback, Uzzi will be missed but four returning starters are back on the OL.

Team:Wake Forest

2012 Record:5-7, ACC 3-5

2012 Wins:Liberty, North Carolina, Army, Virginia, Boston College

2012 Losses:Florida State, Duke, Maryland, Clemson, NC State, Notre Dame, Vanderbilt

2012 Scoring Offense:18.5 114th

2012 Total Offense:301 117th

2012 Rushing Offense:100 113th

2012 Passing Offense:200 91st

2012 Scoring Defense:31.83 91st

2012 Total Defense:432 88th

2012 Rushing Defense:166 68th

2012 Passing Defense:266 100th

Key Personnel Losses:Terrence Davis (WR), Jimmy Newman (K), Riley Haynes (LB), Scott Betros (LB).

Key Personnel Returners:Tanner Price (QB), Josh Harris (RB), Michael Campanaro (WR), Nikita Whitlock (DL), Bud Noel (CB).

Notes:The Deacs had a bad season last year and injuries and suspensions were part of the reason. The offense was not up to par but should be better with Tanner Price returning at quarterback for his senior season. Josh Harris returns at running back and Michael Campanaro is one of the best in the ACC at WR. On defense Nikita Whitlock was banged up much of the season but he returns for his senior season. Bud Noel is a star at corner.

Team:Boston College

2012 Record:2-10, ACC 1-7

2012 Wins:Maine, Maryland

2012 Losses:Miami, Northwestern, Clemson, Army, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Wake Forest, Notre Dame, Virginia Tech, NC State

2012 Scoring Offense:19.83 109th

2012 Total Offense:349 99th

2012 Rushing Offense:90 115th

2012 Passing Offense:258 45th

2012 Scoring Defense:29.67 74th

2012 Total Defense:456 100th

2012 Rushing Defense:2114 11th

2012 Passing Defense:242 75th

Key Personnel Losses:Chris Pantale (TE), John Wertz (OL), Kaleb Ramsey (DL), Dillon Quinn (DL), Jim Noel (DB).

Key Personnel Returners:Chase Rettig (QB), Alex Amidon (WR), Bobby Swygert (WR), Kevin Pierre-Louis (LB)

Notes:Steve Addazio takes over the head coaching position from Frank Spaziani. Addazio had a nice run at Temple and is noted as a good recruiter. The Eagles get Chase Rettig back at quarterback and two of his top targets in Alex Amindon and Bobby Swygert. They have to find improvement in the running game. The defense returns Pierre-Louis but also needs to improve in stoping the run.
