According to, the 2012 Georgia Tech football schedule is finally complete. 

With conference expansion shuffling, the Atlantic Coast Conference schedule has been delayed several times already, but was finally released at 2 p.m. Monday.

The Jackets will travel to Blacksburg to take on Virginia Tech on Labor Day to kick off the season, in a move that caused South East Louisiana to be dropped from the schedule and replaced by Presbyterian the following Saturday, Sept. 15, in what will be a five-day turnaround for Tech.

The second game of Tech's four-game homestand brings Virginia to Bobby Dodd on Sept. 15, in a game the Jackets weren't able to pull off last season.  

The Yellow Jackets then host Miami (Sept. 22) and Middle Tennessee State (Sept. 29) in consecutive weeks.  Tech split these games last season, losing in Miami and routing MTSU in Murfreesboro.  

The next weekend (Oct. 6), the Tigers will be looking for some revenge for last season's Top Five loss in Atlanta, as the Jackets go on the road to face Clemson, followed by an open date the next weekend. 

Oct. 20th kicks off a two-game homestand for Tech when Atlantic Division foe Boston College travels to Bobby Dodd, followed by newly independent Brigham Young the following Saturday (Oct. 27). 

A two-game road slate features Maryland (Nov. 3), and North Carolina (Nov. 10).  The Yellow Jackets won both of these games last season during their initial six-game win streak to start the season.  

A Nov. 17th home game versus Duke wraps up Georgia Tech's conference schedule, and then the next installment of "Clean Old Fashioned Hate" finishes off the 2012 season as the Yellow Jackets travel to Athens to take on the Bulldogs the Saturday after Thanksgiving.
