ESPN releases ACC’s “Big Monday” schedule

For eight straight weeks during the heart of the upcoming basketball season, the ACC will be featured in prime time on ESPN’s “Big Monday” schedule. The league’s teams will play the first matchup each week in a doubleheader of games featuring ACC and Big 12 programs.

Defending national champion Duke will be featured three times — a home game against Syracuse in mid-January, a matchup at Miami the following week, and then a return to Cameron Indoor Stadium to face off against Louisville in early February.

Like the Blue Devils, rival North Carolina is also getting three “Big Monday” appearances this coming winter, with a game at Florida State in early January, a game at Louisville four weeks later, and then a showdown against Syracuse in the Smith Center in late February.

In all, Louisville, Miami, Syracuse, and Virginia are all making two appearances on the signature ESPN program this winter, while Florida State and NC State are making one appearance each.

All ACC matchups featured below are scheduled for 7:00 pm Eastern Standard Time tipoff on ESPN.
