Paul Johnson’s Jackets will face another tough slate in 2013, highlighted by two Thursday night games against ACC foes, home dates with league newcomers Pittsburgh and Syracuse and, of course, the season finale with the hated Bulldogs at Bobby Dodd Stadium.
Schedule News and Notes:• Georgia Tech requested to the ACC office for its BYE weeks to be a September Saturday and Oct. 19 after a long road trip to high-altitude Provo, Utah. Well, they got 1 out of 2 fulfilled, but the BYE after Elon surely isn’t what GT brass had in mind.
- For what it’s worth, GT is 0-4 against the Hokies on Thursday night and 0-5 in non-Saturday games as ACC opponents. The teams last met on Saturday in 2009.
- 2. Tech is 2-0 against Clemson on Thursday, both wins coming by 3 points on late field goals.
