2014 ACC football schedule announced: NC State opens conference play with Florida State

The 2014 ACC football schedule is out, so we can now begin the early prognosticatin' game. Unless that gets too depressing. Might get too depressing.

NC State opens the season with all four of its non-conference games, which is fortunate considering the way league play begins. Florida State comes to Carter-Finley on Sept. 27, and the Wolfpack follows that with a road trip to Clemson. Hey, at least we're getting the rough part out of the way quickly. A trip to Louisville caps an incredibly front-loaded conference slate, but the back half ain't lookin' a whole lot easier.

Aug. 30 Georgia Southern (Wolfpack Club Day)
Sept. 6 Old Dominion (Ag Day)
Sept. 13 @ South Florida
Sept. 20 Presbyterian
Sept. 27 Florida State
Oct. 4 @ Clemson
Oct. 11 Boston College (Hall of Fame Day)
Oct. 18 @ Louisville
Oct. 25 Open
Nov. 1 @ Syracuse
Nov. 8 Georgia Tech (Homecoming)
Nov. 15 Wake Forest
Nov. 22 Open
Nov. 29 @ North Carolina

The good news is that OOC slate sets the Wolfpack up for bowl eligibility despite all of the challenges that come later on. If we are fortunate, NC State will only need to find a couple of league wins to get to 6-6. The potential is there for more, of course, but with this road schedule coupled with the FSU home game, we aren't exactly getting a lot of golden opportunities.
