Maryland-Virginia will kick off at 3:30 p.m. on Nov. 13

Maryland's game at Virginia on Nov. 13 is now set for a 3:30 p.m. kickoff. It can be seen on ESPN3.com.

I just did not want a night game in an open press box, so I'm pleased.

Sure Eric, think of yourself.. Now I have to watch the game on my computer, not TV...

You wonder why fans are largely apathetic towards this team. When you can't even watch a big road game (for MD) against a long-time rival on television, how are fans supposed to get excited?

Newsflash: The ACC tv deal sucks. Check out the lousy Big East games that are televised on ESPNU that day instead of MD/UVA.

There are a ton of MD fans, myself included, who do NOT have an ISP that carries espn3, so we're just SOL I guess. LOL.

Kev29, the Miami game is on ESPNU, but the UVA game on November 13 in Charlotesville is only available on ESPN3. I can't believe that not one, not two, but three ACC matchups got relegated to ESPN3 with the Atlantic Division very much in play. The 3 "network" games (Miami/GaTech, VaTech/UNC, and Clemson/FSU) are obviously superior to the Maryland/UVA matchup, but ESPN couldn't find a single open slot on it's 4 TV networks to make room for what could shape up as a strong regional game?

Prisbell needs to learn to write better on deadline and buy a coat, becuse this constant complaining about night games is just getting old.

Also, it's looking like even the FSU won't be a night game since the 'Noles are now playing in the night slot on ABC (regional) the previous week, and Miami/VaTech and NCSU/UNC both match up that week---Almost assuredly a noon kickoff for the Terps that week on Raycom.

If Md loses this week, but wins at UVA the following week and then win our final 2 games (both at home), we will be in the ACC title game. Just something to think about.

One game at a time Barno. I thought of that too after FSU bumbled the game on Thursday night, but there have been some strange things happening in the ACC this year, and I wouldn't be surprised if a 3-loss team comes out of the Atlantic Division. If the Terps focus on just one team at a time, and not see those two carrots at home to close the season, they may have the luxury of not needing to win them both to reach the title game.

Meaningful November games. It feels good.

Russinator - thanks much for pointing out what I should have seen. I assumed Eric was referring to the Miami announcement!

It's still pathetic that the ACC can't get their games on nationally televised networks (regional would be nice). To have to watch games on my computer is hurtful to recruiting purposes. If I am a recruit, do I want to play at Rutgers and be on TV every week or do I want to go to UMD (better school, better area, better everything), but have only half my games aired on television. Something to think about as the ACC tries to compete with other conferences.
