ACC Early Season TV Schedule

The ACC has released the early season TV schedule. Teams are playing 12 games again this year so each team will be playing 4 non conference games.

Opening Week Sept 1
Georgia Tech @ Notre Dame 3:30 NBC
The Jackets travel to South Bend and try to exact some revenge on the Irish who will be starting a new QB. Jon Tenuta is licking his chops... but so is Charlie Weis
Marshall @ Miami 12:00 ESPNU
Randy Shannon's first game as head coach will not be a push over. The Thundering Herd is not what they once were, but if Kyle Wrighta plays really, really bad it could be pretty close.
FSU @ Clemson 8:00 ESPN
The Atlantic Division will likely be decided on the first weekend. Clemson has won the last two, but will be starting a new QB. FSU would like to be starting a new QB, but it is still stuck with Drew Weatherford and Xavier Lee

Sept 8
After a week of opening game to get people interested, week 2 turns into Division I-AA week (or whatever their name is now) except for Virginia Tech.
Virginia Tech @ LSU 9:15 ESPN
LSU made sure this was a night game where strange things happen and the Tigers can't seem to lose (except for when Rick Clausen is the QB). Kinda weird that these two schools both share a recent tragedy with their campus. LSU is tough at home..very tough.

Sept 15
ACC schedule opens in earnest
FIU @ Miami 3:30 ESPNU
Brawl Part Deux is the only reason this game is televised.
Boston College @ Georgia Tech 8:00 ESPN2
Gut check game for both of these teams who want to be contenders and not pretenders.

Sept 20 Thursday
Texas A&M @ Miami
With a couple games under his belt, Shannon needs this one to show Miami is on the right track. The Aggies have big plans for this season and would love to notch a road win over Miami on their belt. Hurricanes have just 5 days to prepare.
