Virginia Tech-Old Dominion will kick off at 2pm on the ACC Network Extra. The Hokies are the only team whose game currently does not have a set network. However, fans will be able to find this game through WatchESPN as this is basically the ACC’s version of ESPN3.
The kickoff is an odd time, but fans will be glad to have some time to tailgate. However, it is surprising that the 16th-ranked team in America will end up playing half of their non-conference games on the Internet only without any sort of guaranteed TV network.
However, this 2pm kickoff does give some fans a great opportunity to travel from a good distance away and return home without it being too late which should help sell tickets.
