ACC Football Schedule
This weekend’s ACC football schedule kicks off Friday, September 29 with a match up that you can’t afford to miss. Miami, currently ranked #14 in the AP Top 25 travels to Wallace Wade Stadium in Durham to take on unbeaten Duke. The Blue Devils are ranked #27 nationally.
Miami has collected wins over Bethune-Cookman and Toledo with a 21 day break in between those games due to Hurricane Irma.
Duke has wins over NC Central, Northwestern, Baylor and North Carolina and would like nothing more than to add the Hurricanes to that list. The Blue Devils would like a taste of the AP Top 25 and a win here would push them up in the rankings.
Game time is Friday at 7:00p E and coverage is available on ESPN.
Saturday action has Rice visiting Heinz Field to take on Pitt. The Panthers and Owls are both struggling this season. Both teams bring 1-3 records into this meeting.
Pitt needs to find their way back into the win column and have the tools to achieve that goal against Rice.
