Kickoff will be at noon in Atlanta on ABC. Crazy! I can't believe they slotted Miami at Florida for 3:30 on ABC and our game, one of the biggest games of the season, at noon!

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (theACC.com) – Television designations for five premier Atlantic Coast Conference football games were announced Tuesday, May 14, as part of the ESPN Up Front presentation.

“We look forward to the upcoming football season that will feature 17 league football members competing on a national stage,” said ACC Commissioner Jim Phillips, Ph.D. “We appreciate our Disney and ESPN partners and look forward to kicking off the season on August 24, with ESPN’s College GameDay making its first trip outside of the United States to feature Florida State and Georgia Tech in the 2024 Aer Lingus College Football Classic in Dublin, Ireland.”

ESPN’s College GameDay Built by The Home Depot will broadcast live for the first time from Dublin, Ireland, for the Week 0 ACC matchup between Florida State and Georgia Tech to kick off the 2024 season. This will mark the first time that ESPN’s College GameDay Built by The Home Depot will emanate from outside the United States.

The ACC’s non-conference schedule continues to be among the most challenging in the country. In addition to 27 games against Power 4 opponents, including Notre Dame, the ACC will play nine non-conference games against teams ranked in the final 2023 Associated Press Top 25 Poll and 10 non-conference games against teams in ESPN’s 2024 Way-Too-Early Top 25.

Eleven schools – Boston College, California, Clemson, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Louisville, Pitt, SMU, Stanford, Virginia and Virginia Tech – are scheduled to play two Power 4 conference opponents (including Notre Dame) this season.

All 17 ACC teams are scheduled to play at least six games versus bowl teams from last season, highlighted by Georgia Tech slated to play 11 games against a team that played in a bowl game last season.

In partnership with Disney/ESPN, the ACC experienced its most-watched football season in the College Football Playoff (CFP) era.
