ACC: At least 18 football games on national TV

 The ACC championship football game will be played Dec. 3, with kickoff at 8 p.m. at Charlotte's Bank of America Stadium, the ACC announced Wednesday.

The game will be televised live by ESPN.

It's one of at least 18 nationally televised games for the conference in 2011.

  In addition, the conference announced that ACC network games will kick off later this season, at 12:30 p.m., and regional sports network package games will kick off no earlier than 12:30, with several starting at 3:30 p.m. or later.

 ABC has committed to televising three games nationally: Two are on Sept. 17 with defending national champion Auburn visiting Clemson (Noon), plus either Oklahoma visiting Florida State or Ohio State at Miami (either ABC or ESPN, to be determined on Sept. 6). The third was previously announced, Boston College at Miami 3:30 p.m. on Nov. 25.
