With Syracuse and Pittsburgh joining the ACC in 2013, the ACC today released a partial schedule for next season. The complete schedule for the 2013 season is expected to be released in early February.
Next season, Virginia Tech will play home games against Western Carolina, Marshall, Duke, North Carolina, Pittsburgh and Maryland.
The Hokies will hit the road for games against Alabama (technically considered a neutral site game), East Carolina, Georgia Tech, Miami, Virginia and Boston College.
Hokie fans might notice some repeats from the 2012 schedule. As Tech did in 2012, it will host Duke in 2013 and will go on the road again to face Boston College and Miami, just as the Hokies did in 2012.
That's because with the addition of the Orange and Panthers, the ACC had to introduce and entirely new scheduling model. This was necessary to balance hone and away schedules.
