“This is a challenging schedule with two non-conference games against very good SEC teams and the eight ACC games. We are the only ACC school to play two games against SEC teams and two of our division cross over games are with Virginia Tech and Georgia Tech, who won 19 games between them last year.
“I like where the open date falls because it is virtually in the middle of the season. It will be a difficult finish, but all three of those games are at home.
“Our administration approved us to have a home Thursday night game, but it did not happen this year. We have to play Wake Forest on a Thursday night on four days rest, but they will be in the same situation.
“We play Florida State very early in the season, our first ACC game in fact. That will be an early season test for sure.
