The ACC has announced three additional kickoff times announced for the 2017 Georgia Tech football season.
Last week, it was announced that Georgia Tech would start their season off in primetime against Tennessee on Labor Day. On Wednesday, the ACC announced more start times including three additional Georgia Tech games. Two of the three games announced are now night games, giving the Jackets at least three-night games in 2017. Which means more chances for Dedrick Mills “to go national” in 2017.
September 9th: Jacksonville State at Georgia Tech – RSN, 12:30 pm
To catch the Jackets first true home game of the season, you’ll have to catch on your regional sports network which for some out of state fans could end up being a problem. That being said you can catch the game on Watch ESPN come September 9th.
September 16th: Georgia Tech at UCF – ESPNews, 7:30 pm
In what could very well be an interesting and close game in the Jackets first true road game, the Jackets will be playing their second night game of the season. The Jackets will travel to Orlando to face the Golden Knights who should be well improved following 2016.
October 12th: Georgia Tech at Miami – ESPN, 8 pm
Georgia Tech at Miami will be a nationally televised Thursday night matchup on ESPN come the second week of October. The Yellow Jackets will be looking for revenge against the Hurricanes after Miami thrashed them around in front of a home crowd. The game could very well be the Jackets biggest of the season in ACC play and could be pivotal in the battle for the ACC Coastal division.
Other Notable ACC Games:
Here are a few other notable ACC games that the Conference announced start times for on Wednesday.
West Virginia vs Virginia Tech – ABC, 7:30 pm
The West Virginia Mountaineers will be hoping to have early success and follow up a tremendous 2016 season with a win over Virginia Tech at FedEx Field, the home of the Washington Redskins
Pittsburgh vs Penn State – ABC, 3:30 pm
This game was a shootout last year that saw Pittsburgh pull out a win over in-state rival and eventual top-10 Penn State. The Panthers travel to Beaver Stadium and the Nittany Lions will be looking for revenge against Pitt to say the least.
Auburn vs Clemson – ESPN, 7 pm
This will be one of the most hyped up games on September 9th and deservingly so. Auburn almost beat Clemson last year and now have a top quarterback with Jarred Stidham. Clemson will be taking on the Tigers top-rated defense with five-star quarterback Hunter Johnson making just his second start.
Clemson vs Louisville – ABC/ESPN/ESPN2, 3:30 pm
This was a primetime game last season and lived up to it’s billing as the two teams fought each other hard before Clemson eventually pulled out the win. This season it could be another back-and-forth game but it won’t be on primetime as a 3:30 start has been announced. It hasn’t been announced which channel will get the game, however.
