Boston College Vs. Northwestern Is A Nooner On ESPNU

Boston College will host Northwestern in the 2011 football season opener on Saturday, September 3 at noon, ESPN and the ACC announced on Wednesday. The game will be shown nationally on ESPNU.

The time slot isn't the greatest, though I'm glad to see the BC-NU game televised nationally. After the Northwestern game, BC might be relegated to the internets (read: for several games before the Eagles hit the heart of the ACC schedule with games at Virginia Tech and/or Clemson ...

... with the notable exception of the BC-Duke game! Apparently there is enough demand to air BC-Duke on actual, live television. BC's September 17 home game against Duke will kickoff at 12:30 PM, and "the game will be televised live by the ACC Network." I love how the release specifies that the game will be televised LIVE ... as opposed to tape-delayed?

Previously announced kickoff times and TV info:

- BC's primetime showdown against Florida State (Thursday, November 3, 8 PM on ESPN)
- The Holy War game at Notre Dame (Saturday, November 19, 4 PM on NBC)
- BC's Friday afternoon matchup down in Miami Gardens (Friday, November 25, 3:30 PM on ABC)

Kickoff times and television plans for BC's other games will be announced later in the year.
