Just got an e-mail from the ACC office about game times for Nov. 8.

Realistically, not a whole lot is settled.


The ABC/ESPN six-day option, which gets trotted out a limited number of times all season, has been held in reserve pretty much all year. This is actually smart, since it’s better to televise meaningful games on big platforms in November rather than play guessing games in September or early October.

At least that’s what I think. TV executives might disagree. But I digress.

Here’s the rundown of the league’s six games —- and at this point, not a single Saturday game has both its game time and its television platform firmly established. That will have to wait until this weekend:

Here’s guessing the Florida State-Georgia Tech game has a lot to do with how this all plays out, with Miami-Virginia also influencing the outcome.

Nov. 6

* Maryland at Virginia Tech: 7:30, ESPN

Nov. 8

* N.C. State at Duke: 3:30, ESPNU or ESPN 360

* Notre Dame at Boston College: 8, ABC or ESPN

* Virginia at Wake Forest: Noon or 3:30, Raycom (noon) or ESPNU (3:30)

* Clemson at Florida State: Six-day option

* Georgia Tech at North Carolina: Six-day option
