#ACCKickoff Blog 2015
And so, the 2015 edition of ACC Kickoff has come to an end. It's time return to our respective campuses to prepare for the season. In just over six weeks, the kickoffs will be on the field!
LOOKING WAY AHEAD (11:20 a.m.)
Even with Georgia Tech having been picked to win the Coastal Division by media in attendance at the 2015 ACC Football Kickoff, head coach Paul Johnson was asked about the 2016 season opener.
It wasn’t a silly question. The Yellow Jackets learned a few weeks back that they will kick off that campaign in Dublin, Ireland, against Boston College as part of the ACC Worldwide initiative.
“I think it is a great opportunity,” Johnson said. “We're excited for our young men and the fans and alumni. I had the opportunity to do that when I was at the Naval Academy. We played Notre Dame in Ireland. It was a great experience for the players, everybody around. I know a lot of our fans and alumni are excited to put together a week of golf over there and a vacation with the game.
“The only thing that I remember about the last time we played there, a lot of the local fans were questioning how could a tiny school like Notre Dame play the whole Navy? They had that a little backwards. This time it will be our two schools, and I'm sure it will be an exciting game and a fun time.”
