ATLANTA — Three September home games and two nationally televised weeknight road contests in October highlight Georgia Tech’s 2018 football schedule, which was announced by the Atlantic Coast Conference on Wednesday.
Georgia Tech’s 2018 slate is balanced with six home games at Bobby Dodd Stadium and six road contests.
The Yellow Jackets’ home schedule is comprised entirely of Saturday dates versus Alcorn State (Sept. 1), Clemson (Sept. 22), Bowling Green (Sept. 29), Duke (Oct. 13), Miami (Nov. 10) and Virginia (Nov. 17).
Georgia Tech fans are also guaranteed that at least two of the Jackets’ six road games will be nationally televised, as they are slated to play at Louisville on Friday, Oct. 5 and Virginia Tech on Thursday, Oct. 25. The rest of Tech’s road schedule includes contests at USF (Sept. 8), Pitt (Sept. 15), North Carolina (Nov. 3) and Georgia (Nov. 24).
In all, eight of the Yellow Jackets’ 12 opponents advanced to postseason play in 2017, including all four ACC teams that will visit Bobby Dodd Stadium — College Football Playoff participant and ACC champion Clemson, Quick Lane Bowl champion Duke, ACC Coastal Division champion Miami and Military Bowl participant Virginia.
