Boston College Football: ACC Releases 2012 Football Schedule

New, 57 comments

On Monday, the ACC announced the 2012 composite football schedule, including all 12 games for the Eagles this season. Helmet schedule here.

The Eagles have just six home games this season -- Miami (Sep. 1), Maine (Sep. 8), Clemson (Sep. 29), Maryland (Oct. 27), Notre Dame (Nov. 10) and Virginia Tech (Nov. 17). Road trips to Northwestern (Sep. 15), Army (Oct. 6), Florida State (Oct. 13), Georgia Tech (Oct. 20) Wake Forest (Nov. 3) and N.C. State (Nov. 27).

More analysis after we digest this a bit, but for now, leave your initial thoughts on the schedule below.

Sep. 1 MIAMI HURRICANES*
Sep. 8 MAINE BLACK BEARS
Sep. 15 @ Northwestern Wildcats
Sep. 22 BYE
Sep. 29 CLEMSON TIGERS*

Oct. 6 @ Army Black Knights
Oct. 13 @ Florida St. Seminoles*
Oct. 20
@ Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets*
Oct. 27 MARYLAND TERRAPINS*

Nov. 3 @ Wake Forest Demon Deacons*
Nov. 10 NOTRE DAME FIGHTING IRISH
Nov. 17 VIRGINIA TECH HOKIES*
Nov. 24 @ N.C. State Wolfpack*

* ACC games, All CAPS home games

Gut reaction: While we all thought the 2011 schedule was difficult (at least extremely back-loaded), the 2012 slate is probably even more difficult than last season. I would have liked that Army home game back, considering BC plays three consecutive weeks on the road. The off week before Clemson will help, but I would have liked to have the open date much later in the season.

Georgia Tech is the only ACC program that gets an extra week to prepare for the Eagles. BC's October 20 game against the Jackets will be the third straight road game to kick off the month of October.
