ACC grid sked out; first ever Duke-UNC Thursday night game set

Posted by on Wed, Jan 22, 2014 at 4:27 PM

The first-ever Thursday night “Battle of the Blues” between Duke and UNC along with defending national champion Florida State’s visit to N.C. State highlight the Triangle portion of the ACC football schedule released today.

The defending Coastal Division Blue Devils (10-4 last season) will entertain the Belk Bowl champion Tar Heels (7-6) on Nov. 20 at Wallace Wade Stadium in a game to be shown on ESPN.

UNC and Duke will play for the Victory Bell in an ESPN night game this year.

The Seminoles’ visit to the Wolfpack, which went 3-9 last season in Dave Doeren’s first season at the helm, will be on Sept. 27 at Carter-Finley Stadium.

UNC has some of the more interesting road games on the schedule, as the Tar Heels will visit East Carolina on Sept. 20 and Notre Dame on Oct. 11. The Wolfpack makes its first conference-game visit to new member Louisville on Oct. 18.

All three Triangle teams will open at home on Aug. 30, with the Wolfpack entertaining new FBS member Georgia Southern while Duke hosts Elon and the Tar Heels take on Liberty.

The regular season concludes with a couple of “Big Four” matchups on Nov. 29, with N.C. State visiting UNC at Kenan Stadium and Duke hosting Wake Forest at Wallace Wade.

Duke’s other home opponents are Kansas, Tulane, Virginia and Virginia Tech. UNC will also host San Diego State, Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech and Pittsburgh. N.C. State will also entertain Old Dominion, Presbyterian, Georgia Tech and Wake Forest.

The ACC Championship Game will be played Dec. 6 in Charlotte.
