Georgia Tech's 2014 football schedule released

By staff
ATLANTA -- Home games against Orange Bowl champion Clemson, ACC Coastal Division champion Duke and division rivals Miami and Virginia, and road games at Georgia, Pittsburgh, Virginia Tech and North Carolina highlight Georgia Tech's 2014 football schedule.

"Even though you know what opponents you will play, it's always an exciting time for the players, coaches and fans when the schedule is officially released," head coach Paul Johnson said.

"It's certainly a challenging schedule. Five of our six road games come against teams that played in bowl games last season and the home schedule is strong as well."

The Yellow Jackets, 7-6 overall and 5-3 in the ACC a year ago, open the season Aug. 30 against Wofford in Bobby Dodd Stadium. Georgia Tech opens ACC play on the road against Virginia Tech Sept. 20 in Blacksburg, Va.

Notes on the Yellow Jackets' 2014 schedule:

-- Eight of Georgia Tech's 12 opponents played in bowl games last season. Two Yellow Jacket opponents

Lane Kiffin was modest in his goals and complimentary about the team he'll be facing in the Sugar Bowl. He went on and on about how much he's learned from Nick Saban, while insisting it's no big deal when his boss yells at him. Very un-Kiffin-like, you might say.
