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 60 through 51; with a nice mix of in-conference and out-of-conference games, all of which manage to carry their own measure of intrigue.

#60: Boston College Eagles at North Carolina Tar Heels (Saturday, October 26)

#59: Clemson Tigers at Syracuse Orange (Saturday, October 5)

#58: NC State Wolfpack at Boston College Eagles (Saturday, November 16)

#57: Louisiana Tech Bulldogs at NC State Wolfpack (Saturday, August 31)

#56: Wake Forest Demon Deacons at Vanderbilt Commodores (Saturday, November 30)

#55: Syracuse Orange at NC State Wolfpack (Saturday, October 12)

#54: BYU Cougars at Virginia Cavaliers (Saturday, August 31)

#53: Pittsburgh Panthers at Duke Blue Devils (Saturday, September 21)
