The Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) has announced the home and road football opponents and sites for the 2013 season.
Pittsburgh and Syracuse join the conference for 2013, which gives the ACC a total of 14 members. Due to their addition, a number of changes were made to the scheduling format.
Each ACC team will play eight conference games in football (four home and four away), six games within their division (three home, three away) and two games (one home, one away) with crossover opponents from the opposite division.

The Boston College Eagles have added a game against New Mexico State to their 2013 football schedule and will open the season vs. Stony Brook, several sources have reported.
The Stony Brook Seawolves will visit Alumni Stadium in Chestnut Hill to open the 2013 season on Aug. 31. This matchup was previously reported, but the date was recently reported by Newsday writer Greg Logan (via BCInterruption.com).
Stony Brook, a member of the Colonial Athletic Association in the FCS, has never faced Boston College in football.

Ohio State will host the first game of the series at Ohio Stadium on Sept. 19, 2020. The second and final game will be played at Boston College’s Alumni Stadium on Sept. 18, 2021.
“Boston College is a fine program from an outstanding conference (ACC),” Gene Smith, Ohio State associate vice president and director of athletics, said. “This gives Ohio State fans a chance to watch their Buckeyes in back-to-back games against Pacific 12 and ACC schools.”

Back in February, the ACC announced that they were moving to a nine-game football schedule. This was due to the addition of Pittsburgh and Syracuse which brought the total number of ACC teams to 14.
The addition of the extra conference game forced many ACC teams to cancel future non-conference contests. Some of those games were slated for next season.
But then last month, the ACC announced that they had reached an agreement with Notre Dame for the Fighting Irish to play five ACC football teams per season beginning as early as 2014.

The Spiders will travel to NC State next season and will also visit Virginia in 2014.

ACC schools usually play some good non-conference opponents. After all, many of their rivals are SEC teams. The ACC also frequently schedules teams from the Big East.
There are several intriguing non-conference games this season and four are played at neutral site locations. Clemson and Miami are each featured twice.
Here is my pick for the Top 10 ACC non-conference games for the 2012 season:
