The ACC announced its football schedules for the 2013 season.

Here are the schedules for the University of Virginia and Virginia Tech.

Times for most games have not been announced.

The Hokies open the season Aug. 31 against Alabama in Atlanta. The game will be broadcast on ESPN.

Virginia Tech has just one Thursday night game this season. The Hokies play at Georgia Tech on Thursday, Sept. 26 in Atlanta. That game will also be broadcast on ESPN. Virginia Tech plays hosts Marshall five days prior to the Georgia Tech game.

This is the first time since 2001 that Virginia Tech has not hosted a Thursday night game on ESPN.

“Opening up the season against defending national champion Alabama in Atlanta and finishing with rival Virginia at Charlottesville certainly make for an important beginning and end for our season,” Virginia Tech head coach Frank Beamer wrote in a news release. “The biggest negative is playing a Thursday night game at Georgia Tech just five days after facing Marshall. We will definitely want to spend some time during the preseason preparing for that game, particularly on defense.”

The University of Virginia opens its season by hosting two tough non-league games in BYU and Oregon.

UVA’s ACC schedule is highlighted by the Wahoos taking on first-year league member Pittsburgh. The Cavaliers also host Virginia Tech on Nov. 30.
