GREENSBORO, N.C. - The Atlantic Coast Conference released its 2007 football schedule Wednesday, with Virginia Tech's slate featuring eight teams that went to postseason bowl games a year ago. Also highlighting the schedule are a pair of Thursday night broadcasts on ESPN and seven home contests at Lane Stadium/Worsham Field.

Tech will make two appearances on ESPN's Thursday night broadcast, where it is 13-2 all-time. The Hokies will host Boston College on Oct. 25, and then travel to Georgia Tech seven days later. Conference home games include North Carolina, Boston College, Florida State and Miami, while non-conference opponents East Carolina, Ohio and William & Mary come visiting.

In their first three seasons in the ACC, the Hokies have gone 20-4 overall in conference games, 11-1 on the road. This year, the Hokies will play four of their five road games against ACC foes: Clemson (Oct. 6), Duke (Oct. 13), Georgia Tech (Nov. 1) and Virginia (Nov. 24). Tech's other road contest will come against LSU on Sept. 8 at Baton Rouge.

After hosting a school-record eight home games a year ago, the Hokies will play seven games at home this year, including four of their first five contests. Eight of the 12 teams on Tech's schedule played in bowls last year: East Carolina (, LSU (Sugar), Ohio (GMAC), Clemson (Music City), Boston College (Meineke Car Care), Georgia Tech (Gator), Florida State (Emerald) and Miami (MPC Computers).

Once again this season, the league is broken into two separate divisions - the Atlantic (Maryland, Clemson, NC State, Wake Forest, Boston College and Florida State) and Coastal (Virginia, Georgia Tech, North Carolina, Duke, Miami and Virginia Tech) - with the two division winners meeting on Dec. 1 in the ACC Championship game.

Times for most games will be made available, as the season gets closer.
