Just in from the league office, the ACC has announced game times and television coverage for the Saturday, September 29 slate of games. Unfortunately, the league has only decided game times and TV coverage for two games:

Duke Blue Devils at Wake Forest Demon Deacons, ACC Network, 12:30 p.m.
Idaho Vandals at North Carolina Tar Heels, RSN, 3:30 p.m.

The remaining ACC games this weekend have been given the six-day option treatment. The league's TV partners are more than a little interested in finding out what happens this weekend, particularly with the Clemson-Florida State game, before setting network and start times.

Here are the games that are subject to the six-day option:

Clemson Tigers at Boston College Eagles (ABC, ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNU)
N.C. State Wolfpack at Miami Hurricanes (ABC, ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNU)
Middle Tenn. St. Blue Raiders at Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
Louisiana Tech Bulldogs at Virginia Cavaliers
Florida St. Seminoles at South Florida Bulls (ABC, ESPN or ESPN2)
Virginia Tech Hokies vs. Cincinnati Bearcats (ABC, ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNU) (Fedex Field, Landover, Md.)

These game times and TV networks will be announced no later than by noon this Sunday, Sept. 23. So, unfortunately, it'll be another few days before we know the start time of BC-Clemson. The good news, however, is that the Eagles will be on national television. Wait. Did I just say this was a good thing?
