ACC football seasons and networks announced

GREENSBORO, NC ( – The Atlantic Coast Conference and its television partners on Thursday announced kick-off times and networks for all ACC-controlled competitions in the opening weeks of the 2022 football season.

Also included are the times and networks for the Thursday and Friday night contests during the 2022 season.

ESPN also announced its full bowl schedule, which includes most ACC-affiliated bowl games.

“We are excited for the upcoming 2022 ACC football season and anticipate an amazing year with our student-athletes competing for ACC and national championships at the highest level,” said ACC Commissioner Jim Phillips, Ph.D. “As part of what is arguably the most challenging non-conference schedule in the country, we’re opening the season with some incredible games, including five straight days of football over Labor Day weekend. We value the excellent coverage our television partners provide to our institutions and now with full distribution, we are particularly excited for this season of football coverage on ACC Network.”

The ACC football season begins Saturday, August 27 when Florida State hosts Duquesne at 5:00 p.m. on ACC Network and North Carolina hosts Florida A&M at 8:15 p.m. on ACC Network at Week Zero. It’s the first August season opener for the league since 2019.

The ACC will be featured during Labor Day Weekend (September 1-5) with 12 games played over five days. No other league plays all five days of the first week. This is the fourth time in the last six years that the ACC has played five consecutive days in the first week. Labor Day weekend begins Thursday, September 1 with both of last year’s ACC Division Champions in action. ACC and Coastal Division Champion Pitt hosts West Virginia at 7:00 p.m. on ESPN at Heinz Field, and Atlantic Division Champion Wake Forest opens against VMI at Winston-Salem at 7:30 p.m. on ACC Network. On Friday, September 2, Virginia Tech plays at the Old Dominion at 7:00 p.m. on ESPN while Duke hosts Temple on ACC Network at 7:30 p.m.

Saturday’s schedule includes the first of four games this season against an Alliance member school – Boston College vs. Rutgers (Big Ten) at 12 p.m. on ESPNU – and the first league game of the year with Louisville in Syracuse at 8 p.m. on ACC Network. Other September 3 games include North Carolina at Appalachian State at 12:00 p.m. on ESPNU, NC State at East Carolina at 12:00 p.m. on ESPN, Richmond, Virginia at 12:30 p.m. on RSN and Bethune-Cookman in Miami 3:30 p.m. on ACC network.

On Sunday, September 4 at 7:30 p.m. on ABC, Florida State travels to New Orleans for the Allstate Louisiana Kickoff at Caesars Superdome against LSU. The following night in the Chick-fil-A kickoff game on Labor Day Monday, Georgia Tech hosts Clemson at 8 p.m. on ESPN at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

A conference battle with Boston College at Virginia Tech will be held on the second weekend of the season at 8 p.m. on the ACC Network. Two Alliance Matchups are also taking place in week two – Duke in Northwestern at 12:00 p.m. on FS1 and Virginia in Illinois at 4:00 p.m. on ESPNU. Wake Forest plays at 12 p.m. at Vanderbilt on SEC Network, Tennessee travels to Pitt at 3:30 p.m. on ABC and Syracuse plays at 7 p.m. on CBS Sports Network in UConn.

Week three begins with a night game Friday (September 16) between Florida State and Louisville at 7 p.m. on ESPN. Four Power 5 matchups are scheduled for Saturday, September 16, including Purdue in Syracuse at 12 p.m. on ESPN2, Ole Miss at Georgia Tech at 3:30 p.m. on ABC, Texas Tech at NC State at 7 p.m. on ESPN2 and Miami in Texas A&M at 9 p.m. on ESPN.

The ACC’s off-conference schedule continues to be the most challenging in the country. In addition to 21 games against Power 5 opponents, the ACC will play eight non-conference games against teams ranked in the final Associated Press 2021 Top 25 poll. All 14 ACC teams play at least one non-conference Power 5 opponent, while seven schools — Boston College, Clemson, Duke, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Pitt and Syracuse — play two. ACC teams play 27 games against opponents who appeared in a bowl game last year. ACC teams will play nine non-conference games against teams from ESPN’s 2022 Way-Too-Early Top 25.

The 2022 Subway ACC Football Championship Game will be played December 3 at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina and will feature Atlantic Division winner versus Coastal Division winner. The ACC and the Charlotte Sports Foundation have reached an agreement to hold championship play in Charlotte through the 2030 season. The game will be televised by ABC with kick-off time to be announced at a later date.
