ACC Announces Cavs' 2013 Conference Opponents

The 2013 Virginia football schedule will include a visit to Scott Stadium from 2012 ACC Player of the Year Tajh Boyd, and his 11-win Clemson team.

The ACC announced the 2013 conference opponents for its 14 member schools on Friday. The upcoming season will mark the ACC debuts for newcomers Pittsburgh and Syracuse.

Virginia's schedule includes a visit to Pitt, which will join the Cavaliers in the Coastal Division next season. UVa's other division road trips will be to North Carolina and Miami, while the Cavaliers will host Duke, Georgia Tech, and Virginia Tech.

Clemson is Virginia's rotating crossover opponent from the Atlantic Division, with the Tigers schedule to make their first appearance at Scott Stadium since 2008. Clemson is coming off an 11-2 season in 2012, and Boyd, the Tigers' rising senior quarterback, announced earlier this week that he'll return for 2013.

Virginia's final ACC opponent is Maryland, the team's primary crossover opponent. The Cavaliers will visit College Park next fall. Next year will be the Terrapins' last season in the ACC, before making their move to the Big Ten in 2014.

Virginia went 1-5 last year against teams on the 2013 conference schedule, with the only win coming against Miami.
