GREENSBORO, N.C. -- The
2003 Atlantic Coast Conference football schedule was released today by
Commissioner John D. Swofford.  The schedule is comprised of 72 games, including
36 conference matchups, over a span of 14 weeks.


        Georgia Tech brings the
curtain up on the 2003 season when it travels to Provo, Utah, to take on Brigham
Young on Thursday, August 28.  The Yellow Jacket-Cougar matchup is the first of
three Thursday night telecasts involving ACC teams on ESPN. Two days later -
Saturday, August 30 - the remaining eight league teams will swing into action
with two conference match-ups - Florida State at North Carolina and Duke at
Virginia - and four non-league tilts on tap.


        Sixteen of the league’s 36
non-conference games (44 percent) are against teams who earned bowl berths in
2002 including defending national champion Ohio State, second-ranked Miami and
No. 3 Georgia.  In all 10 non-conference games are scheduled against nine teams
that finished the season ranked in either the AP or Coaches’ polls.


        Non-conference opponents
who earned bowl bids in 2002 are Arizona State (Holiday Bowl), #14 Auburn
(Capital One), Boston College (Motor City Bowl), #20 Colorado (Alamo), #24
