Clemson Starts Off Its Season In the National Spotlight, Against the SEC’s Georgia Bulldogs

*Some computer troubles delayed the release of this final post, but nonetheless, here are your top 10 games for 2013:

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 look at numbers 10 through one; the best of the best for this year’s ACC schedule. Among the highlights, in- and out-of-conference rivalries galore, and a bevy of top-ranked matchups that are sure to catch national attention (and hopefully, accolades for the conference, too).

#10: Georgia Bulldogs at Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (Saturday, November 30)

#9: Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at Clemson Tigers (Thursday, November 14)

#8: Virginia Cavaliers at North Carolina Tar Heels (Saturday, November 9)

    • Ha… Thanks, Mark. Yeah, would’ve loved to have this wrapped up last week, but my computer (and the file ranking all these games) had to take a trip to the repair shop. I really did enjoy this process too. It obviously creates some great conversation around the blog, since people love lists so much.
