On Monday, the ACC announced the game time and networks for the November 29-30 games. Boston College's road game at Syracuse drew a 3:30 p.m. start on the ACC's Regional Sports Network. That's NESN in New England and YES in New York.
On a crowded, post-Thanksgiving rivalry weekend, BC and Syracuse actually fare pretty well with the start time and network coverage for the regular season finale. Maryland's final ACC game at N.C. State gets the ACC Network slot while Wake Forest-Vanderbilt is on something called SEC TV, which I think they just kind of made up.
The league's TV partners have announced a six-day hold on two games -- Virginia Tech-Virginia and Duke-North Carolina -- as they wait to see which game will have larger Coastal Division title implications.
If Pitt takes down Syracuse this weekend, Boston College can end its rivals' season with a victory over the Orange in the Dome. A little payback for 2004, perhaps? Christmas come early?
