Now that college baseball has ended and we are just about 50 days until football kicks off, the off-season fully upon us. The ACC Network has been filling the airwaves (internet-waves?) with daily takeovers, moving through the conference members in alphabetical order.

Well, now it’s Virginia’s turn.

You’ll get a chance to see a couple of Virginia’s best football games from last season, two of the most exciting men’s basketball games, and more. Sadly, none of the men’s lacrosse games from their run to their second straight NCAA title made the cut, but it’s a good day of good wins.

They’re starting the day with Virginia women’s swimming and diving winning the ACC Championship, then showing the Cavaliers’ exciting home win over No. 15 North Carolina in Football from last Halloween. Virginia’s football game against Louisville will run at 3pm, and you’ll get two men’s basketball games — the ACC clinching win at Louisville and Reece Beekman’s late-game heroics against Syracuse — at 1pm and 6pm, respectively. Women’s lacrosse against Duke will air at 11am.

If you miss the morning run of the UNC football shootout from last season, it will re-air at 8pm.

Here’s the schedule as it’s shown on the guide (note: this could change):

6:00am — 2021 ACC Women’s Swimming and Diving Championship

8:00am — Football: No. 15 North Carolina vs. Virginia (2020)

11:00am — Women’s Lacrosse: No. 8 Duke vs. No. 9 Virginia (2021)

1:00pm — Men’s Basketball: No. 21 Virginia at Louisville (2021)

3:00pm — Football: Louisville at Virginia (2020)

6:00pm — Men’s Basketball: Syracuse vs. Virginia (2021 ACC Tournament)
