Just got the ACC’s kickoff times release for Sept. 20.

Maryland-Eastern Michigan starts at 1 p.m. on ESPN360. Which means it shouldn’t prove to be a deadline disaster. It also means it didn’t land in the dreaded 6 p.m. zone.


A 1 p.m. kickoff is sort of a traditional (i.e. before TV dictated everything) start time. The last time a game at Byrd started at 1 was Oct. 20, 2001, when the Terps played Duke at that time.

Anyway, here’s the full list of ACC games for Sept. 20:

Mississippi State at Georgia Tech, noon/3:30, Raycom/ABC regional
Virginia Tech at North Carolina, noon/3:30, Raycom/ABC regional
East Carolina at N.C. State, noon, ESPN or ESPN2
Central Florida at Boston College, 1, ESPNU
South Carolina State at Clemson, 1, ESPN360
Eastern Michigan at Maryland, 1, ESPN360
Miami at Texas A&M, 3:30/8, ABC
Wake Forest at Florida State, 7, ESPN2
