Five Important Out-of-Conference For ACC In 2013

5) Week 7: Georgia Tech at BYU

Some believe the Yellow Jackets could be the sleeper team in the conference in 2013. Fresh off its win over USC in the Sun Bowl, Georgia Tech returns many starters on both sides of the ball and runs an offense that is very difficult to play against. Provo is always one of the most difficult places in the country to play and if the Yellow Jackets can come away with a win against a team that usually finishes the season in the top 25 it would go a long way in establishing them as a dangerous out-of-conference opponent.

The Cougars crushed the Yellow Jackets last year in Atlanta, 41-17, and held Georgia Tech to 157 yards of offense. 

Early prediction: BYU 31, Georgia Tech 21
