The 2013 ACC football schedule has officially been released, meaning we finally have some clarity as to whom the conference’s 14 teams will face-off with from week-to-week next season. So with that in mind, we thought it would be an entertaining undertaking to rank all 112 ACC football games for 2013 because, well… it’s the offseason.

Today, we take a quick glance at numbers 70 through 61; the majority of which are in-conference games. As for the non-conference matchups, we certainly see some high-profile contests, though at the same time, it’s tough to gauge just how competitive any of them will actually be. Regardless, we roll on…

#70: NC State Wolfpack at Florida State Seminoles (Saturday, October 26)

#69: Wake Forest Demon Deacons at Miami Hurricanes (Saturday, October 26)

#68: Syracuse Orange at Florida State Seminoles (Saturday, November 16)

#67: Wake Forest Demon Deacons at Clemson Tigers (Saturday, September 28)

#66: Pittsburgh Panthers at Navy Midshipmen (Saturday, October 26)

#65: Syracuse Orange at Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (Saturday, October 19)

#64: Wake Forest Demon Deacons at Boston College Eagles (Friday, September 6)

#63: East Carolina Pirates at NC State Wolfpack (Saturday, November 23)

#62: Navy Midshipmen at Duke Blue Devils (Saturday, October 12)

#61: Boston College Eagles at USC Trojans (Saturday, September 14)

Some additional notes on today’s list:

  • The 10 games appear on nine different dates
  • Breakdown of non-conference opponent leagues: Independent (2), C-USA (1), Pac-12 (1)
  • Breakdown of non-conference opponent home states: Maryland (2), California (1), North Carolina (1)
  • Public vs. private universities: Two service academy, one public, one private

Previously: #112-101, #100-91, #90-81, #71-80
