3 PM Kickoffs are the new thing and other links
BC's game with Maryland will be another 3 PM kickoff shown on a regional sports network (probably the same one that showed Clemson and Wake Forest). As I've said, I will take a hard to find, weirdly timed TV game over an internet game any day. The good news is that the "fifth" ACC game on a Saturday is now televised at all. Previously that had been the domain of ESPN3.com. I imagine this related to the ACC's relationship with ESPN. Whether these are now contracted to be aired (although they weren't aired last season) or ESPN is pressuring "ACC Network" affiliates to carry games, it is a win for BC. I think we'll see a few more 3 PM kickoffs before the season is over.
As BCI mentioned, we are underdogs against the Hokies again and haven't been that good against the spread when playing Beamer's guys.
We are at the bottom of the ACC power rankings.
