Two of the biggest non-conference opportunities this fall for the Atlantic Coast Conference -- Oklahoma at Florida State and Ohio State at Miami – will be televised on the evening of Sept. 17 in primetime on ABC and ESPN, correspondent Brett McMurphy has learned.

Although the games will be televised head-to-head, the kickoffs will be staggered by 30 minutes. The specific networks and kickoff times for each game will be determined at a later date.

Oklahoma is ranked No. 1 in’s post-spring Top 25 rankings, while Florida State is No. 8 and Ohio State is No. 9. Miami, under new coach Al Golden, is not ranked. The ACC is expected to release its television schedule on Wednesday.
