Back on Oct. 12, the ACC distributed game times and television networks for football games the weekend of Oct. 24. The rivalry matchup between NC State and UNC was given a noon kickoff; the game would be televised on ESPN or ABC.
With a quick update from NC State senior associated athletics director Fred Demarest, ESPN will be on the call for NC State-UNC in Chapel Hill.

Following a 31-20 home win over Duke on Saturday, NC State improved to 4-1 (4-1 ACC) — with three straight victories. UNC (3-1, 3-1 ACC) traveled to Florida State as a favorite on Saturday; however, the Heels fell 31-28, their first loss of the season.
During NC State’s victory on Saturday, though, starting quarterback Devin Leary left the game during the third quarter on a cart with an apparent ankle injury.
After three straight defeats (2016-18), North Carolina destroyed NC State in Raleigh last season, 41-10.
