The ACC Thursday morning revealed this season’s conference football schedule for all 15 teams. The 10 league opponents were penciled in along with a date for a non-conference game and two off weeks. Clemson, which was set to open the season September 3rd at Georgia Tech, now will open the season nine days later at Wake Forest. The Tigers’ home opener will be the following weekend against the still to be determined non-conference opponent.

Compared to their original 2020 schedule, the Tigers are adding home games against Miami and Pitt and a road game at Virginia Tech, and the are losing home games with Akron, Louisville, NC State, The Citadel and USC. The Tigers will still have a home game on Thanksgiving weekend, but instead of the traditional rivalry matchup against the Gamecocks, the opponent will be Pitt.

Only two games on the schedule remain as originally planned, the Homecoming date of October 24th against Syracuse and the road trip to Notre Dame November 7th. Previously the Tigers had an open date before the Notre Dame game. Now they don’t. And neither do the Irish. And all of Clemson’s games this season will be played on Saturdays.

The plus one game for Clemson has not yet been announced. Here are the ones announced for other ACC teams…Boston College (Ohio); Duke (Charlotte); Florida State (Samford); Georgia Tech (UCF); Louisville (Western Kentucky); Miami (UAB); NC State (Liberty); Notre Dame (Western Michigan); Pitt (Miami of Ohio); Syracuse (Liberty); Virginia (VMI); Virginia Tech (Liberty); Wake Forest (Old Dominion).
