The 2024 college football season is still almost eight months away, but the ACC football schedules are starting to fall into place. This week the conference will announce the dates for all schools conference games and Monday, the conference began the slow release of schedules with the Week 0 and Week 1 schedules.

This year, there will be an ACC matchup in Week 0 when Florida State plays Georgia Tech on Aug. 24 in Dublin, Ireland. ESPN College Gameday will be on-site and it will be the first time ever that the pregame show will be broadcast outside of the United States.

After that game, all eyes will turn to Week 1 and three ACC teams will begin the season on Thursday night, Aug. 29. North Carolina will be at Minnesota, North Carolina State will host Western Carolina and Wake Forest will host North Carolina A&T.

Friday night, Aug. 30, will have two ACC teams in action, including the first of three newcomers to the conference. Duke will host Elon, while Stanford will play its first game as a member of the conference when they line up across from TCU at home.

Saturday, Aug. 31will feature 10 games, including Virginia Tech. The Hokies will travel to Nashville to play Vanderbilt, out of the SEC, in a game that we already knew about. Other games include the 2024 Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game between Clemson and Georgia at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta and an in-state battle when Miami travels to Florida.

Pittsburgh will host Kent State, Syracuse will host Ohio and Austin Peay will be at Louisville. Virginia will host Richmond, Georgia Tech will play Georgia State at home and SMU will play Houston Christian. California will host UC Davis. The weekend will end on Labor Day night with Florida State hosting Boston College on Monday night, Sept. 2.
