On Thursday afternoon, the ACC announced kickoff times and Television coverage for several early season games.
The game that matters most on this list, in my humble opinion, is the game between Miami and Florida State. And, once again, Canes vs Noles is going to be in primetime. Here’s the info you need to know:
Miami at Florida State | 9.16.17 | 8pm | ABC

More on this announcement from UM Athletics:
CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The University of Miami’s Week 3 game at in-state rival Florida State on Sept. 16 will be televised nationally by ABC at 8 p.m., the Atlantic Coast Conference and ESPN announced Thursday.
This is the Hurricanes’ first ABC prime-time appearance since last year’s game against the Seminoles on Oct. 8, 2016, in Miami Gardens.
Miami has played Florida State 61 times, more than any other opponent. The last year the Hurricanes and Seminoles did not meet was 1968. This year’s game is the earliest between the two teams since Sept. 7, 2009, when the Hurricanes opened the season with a 38-34 win at Doak Campbell Stadium.
The kickoff times for the rest of the Hurricanes’ 2017 games will be announced at a later date. Miami’s 2017 schedule features seven games at Hard Rock Stadium, starting with Bethune-Cookman on Sept. 2.
The Hurricanes return 18 starters from last year’s squad that finished 9-4, winning its final five games, capturing its first bowl win in 10 years and finishing the year ranked in the AP and Amway Coaches Polls for the first time since 2009.
So, mark your calendars and make your plans now.
More on this in the coming months.
