ESPN will televise NC State at UNC; kickoff set for 12

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.
