The ACC table is crowded these days, with 10 of 12 squads sporting overall winning records (you can count yourselves out, State and Clemson) and three teams with one conference loss and seven with two. There are lots of big games coming up, including some unforeseen ones, like Miami versus Virginia and Duke versus Wake Forest (?!), and some expected ones, like Georgia Tech versus Florida State.
With so many contenders, expected and otherwise, the remaining football schedule is in flux, as far as anticipating the stakes of each contest.
So, it was fitting that the UNC media office announced today that the start time for Tar Heels’ Nov. 8 showdown with with Georgia Tech is still undetermined, as is the basketball team’s tuneup against UNC- Pembroke that day. UNC’s associate athletic director for communications Steve Kirschner said in an e-mail that the league’s television partners “have used one of their six-day options on the selections for games on Nov. 8.”
The start times won’t be announced until Nov. 1.
