TV, times for 2 B1G-ACC games announced

The Big Ten primetime schedule of games and TV plans should be announced any day now, but the ACC has finalized its early television schedule for the 2011 season.

That means we now know kickoff times and TV plans for the Big Ten's two nonconference road games against ACC opponents.

  • Northwestern's season opener Sept. 3 at Boston College will kick off at noon ET and be televised by ESPNU.

  • Ohio State's visit to Miami on Sept. 17 will kick off at 7:30 p.m. ET or 8 p.m. ET and be televised by ABC (national) or ESPN. The Buckeyes-Canes game will go up against the Oklahoma-Florida State contest in the same time slot.

The Big Ten has one other matchup against the ACC as Indiana hosts Virginia on Sept. 10. Because the Hoosiers are the home team, the Big Ten will announce the kickoff time and TV plans for the game.
