On Monday, BYU released its finalized schedule for the 2012 season, which includes a trip to Atlanta to take on the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at Bobby Dodd Stadium.  

Since the ACC has yet to release a conference schedule, its member institutions haven't been able to finalize their schedules either, but the Cougars' release gives fans another piece to Georgia Tech's scheduling puzzle, which already had two games set: at Virginia Tech on Labor Day, and at Georgia on November 24th.  

The Jackets are under a three-game agreement with BYU, which gives them two of the three games in Atlanta, and sets next year's contest on the road in Utah.  

It is still unclear if the second or third installment of this series will survive the new ACC nine-game conference scheduling with Pitt and Syracuse possibly arriving in the conference as early as the 2013 season in their departure from the Big East.  

The rest of the Atlantic Coast Conference football schedule should be out any day now, as teams like Florida State scramble to find replacement non-conference opponents, while having to be mindful of the new hitch of conference realignment that continues to loom overhead. 

Stay tuned for the final version of the Jackets' 2012 schedule.
