A day after Miami beat Georgia Tech 25-24, the ACC and University of Miami announced kickoff time and TV coverage for next week’s ACC Coastal game at North Carolina.
The game in Chapel Hill will be played at noon on October 28th.

With all TV options available (ABC, ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU), my guess is that this game will be televised on ESPNU. That’s not because of anything other than the fact that UNC is in the midst of a very bad 2017 season, and putting them on one of the more “premium” channels wouldn’t be a big draw from ABC/ESPN. We’ll know if that’s true or not when the TV component is announced after this weekend’s games.
There has been no official announcement about uniforms, but Miami will probably wear white jerseys over orange pants — the standard away-game combination.
So, that’s it. Miami’s penultimate road trip to 1 (or maybe 2) win North Carolina will feature a noon game. So, early start, early finish, and move on with our Saturday. In 2 weeks, that is.
