Early Season Kickoff Times And TV Info Released

Today the ACC announced kickoff times and television network information for the first three weeks of the football season. As expected, NC State gets a couple of 6 PM kickoffs for its cupcake games, and as I say every year, I think that's the perfect kickoff time in September. So you can officially start planning that first tailgate.

Sept 3: vs. Liberty -- 6 PM (ESPN3)

Sept. 10: at Wake Forest -- 3:30 PM (RSN***)

Sept. 17: vs. South Alabama -- 6 PM (ESPN3)

Sept. 22: at Cincinnati -- 8 PM (ESPN)

***Under the new television contract, the Regional Sports Network is the ACC Network thing we're used to, except it's distributed on cable--Fox Sports South, Fox Sports Carolinas, etc.

Update: An additional note from NC State's release:

ACC network syndicated games will have a new, later kickoff time of 12:30 p.m.; while the Regional Sports Network package will be no earlier than 12:30 p.m., with several games slated for 3:30 p.m. or later.

Woohoo, an extra half hour! This doesn't mean we've seen the last of noon kickoffs, but it does mean they'll happen less often.
