Both FSU and Miami will get plenty of National Exposure
Miami will be hosting Florida Atlantic in a game set for Friday night August 30th at 8 p.m. on ESPNU.
Florida State gets the coveted Labor Day prime-time spot as they welcome Pittsburgh to the ACC. That game will air Monday night September 2nd at 8 p.m. on ESPN live from Heinz Field.
Of note is that the Labor Day game is one of the highest rated college football broadcasts of the year.
Another early highlight on the schedule comes Saturday September 7th. The Florida Gators will head south to face Miami in a big game slated for a noon start on ESPN.
It should be noted that all of the FSU and Miami games will air on one of the ESPN family of networks as per the ACC deal with the network.
Could either FSU or Miami get more national prime-time games later in the season?
As we know from years past, afternoon games can be bumped into prime-time if either the Seminoles or the Hurricanes are having a good enough season.
So do stay tuned.
