College football is upon us again sports fans. Sit back, relax and put the phone on silent, because here are the channels and times to watch your favorite Atlantic Coast Conference teams on Saturday:
Northwestern vs. Boston College: Do they play this game every year? They should. I like it. (Noon, ESPNU). Visit BC Interruption and SB Nation Boston for more on Boston College. Visit Sippin on Purple and SB Nation Chicago for more on Northwestern.
Appalachian State vs. No. 13 Virginia Tech: Hokies fans are always terrified of the opener. And with good reason.(12:30 p.m., ESPN3). Visit Gobbler Country for more on the Hokies.
Louisiana Monroe vs. No. 6 Florida State: This game will be interesting for all of eight minutes. (3:30 p.m., ESPNU). Visit Tomahawk Nation for more on Florida State.
James Madison vs. North Carolina: I have a soft spot for 1-AA teams, and it seems a CAA team gives an ACC team trouble each season, so why not the Dukes this year? (3:30 p.m., ESPN3). Visit Carolina March for more on North Carolina.
Troy vs. Clemson: Clemson better watch out, Troy is better than they think. (3:30 p.m., ESPN3). Visit Shakin the Southland for more on Clemson.
William and Mary vs. Virginia: Even though the alma mater tried to scare me off with the choice of the Griffin mascot, Tribe Pride still prevails. William and Mary beat UVA two years ago, and this year's Tribe team may be better than the '09 squad. (6 p.m., ESPN3). Visit Streaking The Lawn for more on Virginia.
Richmond vs. Duke: Richmond has to regroup after losing their head coach, and Duke is at least no longer the bottom-feeder it was for decades. (7 p.m., ESPN3).
