Georgia Tech fans, your dream scenario is one September Saturday away from being realized.
That would be, of course, the first month of the football season without any noon kickoffs. The ACC released its early-season schedule Thursday, confirming the school’s request for a 7 p.m. kickoff against Presbyterian Sept. 8 and also deciding on a 3:30 p.m. start time for the Sept. 15 Virginia home game. With the Sept. 29 home game against Middle Tennessee State also penciled in for 7 p.m., that only leaves the Sept. 22 home game against Miami as undetermined.
You may remember Tech played noon kickoffs at Bobby Dodd Stadium against Kansas, North Carolina and Maryland in the first half of the season, causing cries of torment and anguish.
The Presbyterian-Tech game will be broadcast on ESPN3 and the UVA-Tech game will be broadcast on ESPNU.
The league also determined a start time for the ACC championship game Dec. 1 in Charlotte – 7:45 p.m. if on ESPN and 8 p.m. if ABC carries the game.
