Update: The ACC wasn’t waiting only on Florida State. With Florida State having found an opponent for its Sept. 8 slot, the clock is now ticking solely for Georgia Tech.
The school had to move games around to accommodate its Labor Day game against Virginia Tech and is still looking for an opponent for Sept.8, five days after the Virginia Tech game.
“Hopefully we’re getting to a conclusion, but it’s been frustrating,” associate athletic director Wayne Hogan said.
Hogan said the school has narrowed its search down to two schools, which he declined to name.
“We’re close,” he said. “I hope we can announce something soon.”
The Seminoles will play Savannah State to replace its game against West Virginia, which canceled the game as it is about to join the Big 12. Savannah State will receive $475,000 for its visit to Tallahassee. The ACC had been waiting on Florida State to find an opponent to complete the league schedule.
Two known dates for Georgia Tech are the Sept. 3 Labor Day game against Virginia Tech and a home game against BYU Oct. 27. Tech figures to play Georgia Nov. 24 in Athens.
