Time to book those reservations.

The Atlantic Coast Conference released its 2013 composite football schedule Monday, and the Miami Hurricanes will not leave the state until Oct. 17, when they face North Carolina at Chapel Hill in a Thursday night ESPN game.

The always anticipated game against Florida State will be played in Tallahassee on Saturday, Nov. 2.

The Hurricanes already knew they would open the 2013 season against Florida Atlantic. But the date turned out to be Aug. 30 – a Friday – at Sun Life Stadium, instead of the Aug. 31 date that many expected.

The next weekend is a doozy, as the Florida Gators face the Canes at Sun Life on Sept. 7.

After the two other nonconference games against Savannah State on Sept. 21 and at USF’s Raymond James Stadium in Tampa on Sept. 28, here is the slate of ACC games for the Hurricanes:

Oct. 5: Georgia Tech.

Oct. 12: Open.

Oct. 17: At North Carolina (Thursday night ESPN game).

Oct. 26: Wake Forest.

Nov. 2: at Florida State.

Nov. 9: Virginia Tech.

Nov. 16: at Duke.

Nov. 23: Virginia.

Nov. 29 (the day after Thanksgiving): at Pittsburgh, to be televised by either ABC, ESPN or ESPN2.

The ACC Championship Game is Dec. 7 at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, N.C.

UM’s other open date is Sept. 14 and falls on Yom Kippur – the holiest day of the year for Jews.

UM’s game at home against Virginia Tech will be the second season in a row that the Canes meet the Hokies at Sun Life Stadium.

The Hurricanes’ game at Pittsburgh will mark the first time both teams will play each other as ACC members. As was previously announced, Pittsburgh is now part of UM’s Coastal Division.

As for the Seminoles – in the Atlantic Division – they open the season at Pitt at 8 p.m. on Labor Day (ESPN). Their open dates are Sept. 7 and Oct. 12, and their non-conference games are at home Sept. 14 against Nevada, Sept. 21 against Bethune-Cookman, Nov. 23 against Idaho; and at Florida in the Nov. 31 regular-season finale.

FSU’s other ACC games: at Boston College on Sept. 28; home against Maryland on Oct. 5; at Clemson on Oct. 19; home against NC State on Oct. 26; home against UM on Nov. 2; at Wake Forest on Nov. 9; and home against new ACC-member Syracuse on Nov. 16.
