2013 Road 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. Yesterday we looked at a capsule of the ACC teams coming to Death Valley next season. Today we will take a capsule look at the upcoming ACC road games for the Tigers. Tomorrow we will preview the out of conference games on the 2013 schedule.


2012 Record:8-4, Big East 4-2

2012 Wins:Stony Brook, Pittsburgh, UConn, South Florida, Louisville, Missouri, Temple, West Virginia

2012 Losses:Northwestern, Southern Cal, Rutgers, Cincinnati

2012 Scoring Offense:30.0 55th

2012 Total Offense:476 17th

2012 Rushing Offense:187 40th

2012 Passing Offense:289 29th

2012 Scoring Defense:24.77 46th

2012 Total Defense:378 48th

2012 Rushing Defense:144 43rd

2012 Passing Defense:234 62nd

Key Personnel Losses:Ryan Nassib (QB), Alec Lemon (WR), Marcus Sales (WR), Justin Pugh (OL), Shamarko Thomas (DB), Brandon Sharpe (DL)

Key Personnel Returners:Jerome Smith (RB), Prince-Tyson Gulley (RB), Jarrod West (WR), Dyshawn Davis (LB), Marquis Spruill (LB), Jeremi Wilkes (DB).

Notes:The Orange won eight games in two of the last three years under Doug Marrone but he recently left to go to the NFL. Defensive coordinator Scott Shaffer takes over. They will have to replace one of the best quarterback is in school history in Nassib. The two top receivers are gone as well but the two top rushers return. They won six of their last seven on the strength of a solid defense that returns eight starters.


2012 Record:4-8, ACC 2-6

2012 Wins:Richmond, Penn State, NC State, Miami

2012 Losses:Georgia Tech, TCU, La Tech, Duke, Maryland, Wake Forest, North Carolina, Virginia Tech

2012 Scoring Offense:22.75 93rd

2012 Total Offense:396 62nd

2012 Rushing Offense:128 96th

2012 Passing Offense:268 37th

2012 Scoring Defense:28.92 70th

2012 Total Defense:353 28th

2012 Rushing Defense:144 44th

2012 Passing Defense:208 33rd

Key Personnel Losses:Michael Rocco (QB), Perry Jones (RB), Oday Aboushi (OL), Steve Greer (LB), Larry Reynolds (LB)

Key Personnel Returners:Phillip Sims (QB), Kevin Parks (RB), Tim Smith (WR), Morgan Mosses (OL), Jake McGee (TE), Demetrius Nicholson (DB)

Notes:Year three under Mike London was a step backwards for the Cavs. Improving the running game will be a big priority in the spring and that will be tougher without Perry Jones. Virginia couldn't settle on a quarterback last year but Michael Rocco transferred out of the program so Phillip Sims inherits the full-time job. They lose Aboushi but return Moses on the OL. The biggest concern on defense will be replacing Greer and Reynolds at linebacker. The other major news was the staff turnover as London cleaned house after a 4-8 season.


2012 Record:4-8, ACC 2-6

2012 Wins:William and Mary, Temple, Wake Forest, Virginia

2012 Losses:UConn, West Virginia, NC State, Boston College, Georgia Tech, Clemson, Florida State, North Carolina

2012 Scoring Offense:20.08 107th

2012 Total Offense:284 120th

2012 Rushing Offense:103 112th

2012 Passing Offense:181 100th

2012 Scoring Defense:27.17 56th

2012 Total Defense:336 21st

2012 Rushing Defense:129 26th

2012 Passing Defense:207 30th

Key Personnel Losses:Matt Furstenburg (TE), Kenny Tate (LB), Demetrius Hartsfield (LB), Darin Drakeford (LB), Joe Vellano (DT), AJ Francis (DL)

Key Personnel Returners:CJ Brown (QB), Stephon Diggs (WR), Wes Brown (RB), Peyton Hills (QB)

Notes:Few teams could afford the injuries Maryland suffered last season. The Terps weren't that talented to begin with but were hit as hard as anyone with injuries. Brown will have to hold off the other QBs that gained some experience. Diggs is good enough at WR to build the offense around. Wes Brown had a solid freshman campaign at RB. The Terps played well on defense but have to replace several stars in the front seven.

Team:NC State

2012 Record:7-6, ACC 4-4

2012 Wins:UConn, South Alabama, The Citadel, Florida State, Maryland, Wake Forest, Boston College

2012 Losses:Tennessee, Miami, North Carolina, Virginia, Clemson, Vanderbilt

2012 Scoring Offense:28.08 69th

2012 Total Offense:421 48th

2012 Rushing Offense:111 108th

2012 Passing Offense:310 18th

2012 Scoring Defense:25.62 52nd

2012 Total Defense:404 68th

2012 Rushing Defense:154 52nd

2012 Passing Defense:249 83rd

Key Personnel Losses:Mike Glennon (QB), Tobias Palmer (WR), Camden Wentz (OL), Zach Allen (OL), RJ Mattes (OL), Brian Slay (DL), Sterling Lucas (LB), David Amerson (CB), Earl Wolfe (DB), Brandon Bishop (DB).

Key Personnel Returners:Shadrach Thornton (RB), Quinton Payton (WR), Bryan Underwood (WR), Robert Crisp (OL), Art Norman (DL), Daryl Bishop-Cato (DL).

Notes:Tom O'Brien never got over the hump in Raleigh so the pack start over with Dave Doeren. The new staff will have newcomers at QB and at three OL positions. Thornton was a pleasant surprise at RB. The defense was awful in 2012 and have to replace three starters in the secondary.
