The Atlantic Coast Conference, Syracuse football's new home this Fall, released its early-season TV schedule Thursday, and sadly it featured just one update about the Orange's schedule.
The update was the Sept. 14 showdown with visiting Wagner, which will be a 4 p.m. ET kickoff and can be seen on ESPN3 -- I'd expect, at some point, TWCS will pick up the coverage, but this was a bit easier in the past with the Big East Network in place.
As for the Syracuse-Penn State season-opener at MetLife Stadium, well, the ACC is still listing the kickoff time and TV coverage as TBD.
We already knew that Syracuse at Northwestern, Sept. 7, will be carried on the Big Ten Network and will begin at 6 p.m. ET.
Besides that, no other Syracuse non-conference contest has an official start time or broadcast home. Meanwhile, if you want to get excited about ACC football -- and who doesn't? -- here's what was released:
