With the likes of Virginia, North Carolina, Duke and Florida State, it's no doubt that the ACC is one of the strongest Olympic sport conferences in all the land. The league announced today the Olympic Sport coverage for the upcoming fall season, which is comprised of 38 televised games and 75 appearances, the highest-ever in the history of ACC Fall Olympic Sports and triples coverage from previous years.
Virginia men's and women's soccer will be getting plenty of coverage, with a combined seven games to be televised.
The women will have three of their contests aired this fall, including the home game against Virginia Tech on October 20 at 7:00 p.m (FOX Soccer). The Hoos will also be on TV on September 25, 3:00 p.m. at North Carolina on ESPNU, and on September 29, 8:00 p.m. at Duke on RSN.
For the men, there will be at least four games coming to your television this fall -- two from Klockner and two on the road. The party starts on September 9 at 7:00 p.m. at Duke (FOX Soccer) and continues September 30 at 7:00 p.m. at Clemson (RSN). The two home contests that will be aired are against Maryland on October 7 at 7:00 p.m. (RSN) and against Boston College on October 29 at 7:00 p.m. (ESPN3.com).
At least one early preseason poll has the men ranked 12th in the country, while I haven't seen any preseason rankings for women's soccer just yet.
There may be more opportunities to catch the Hoos on TV, as the entire ACC Championships for men's soccer, women's soccer, and field hockey will all be aired on RSN and the ESPN family of networks.
