The ACC Network launches this year. What college football games will be on it?

2019 college football quarterbacks to watch

College football fans: There’s a new channel you’ll have to go to find a few games this year.

The Atlantic Coast Conference, in partnership with ESPN, will launch the ACC Network on August 22. About 450 live contests, including 40 regular-season games, will be televised annually.

PLAYERS TO WATCH: 3 running backs poised for breakout seasons

Ahead of its launch, the network has distribution deals with Altice, DirectTV, Google Fiber, Hulu Live TV, Optimum by Suddenlink, PlayStation Vue, TVision, Verizon Fios and YouTube TV. More cable and television providers  could reach an agreement with the network before its launch.

HISTORY: These are the 10 oldest stadiums in college football

The first football game the ACC Network will show is a clash between Georgia Tech and Clemson on Thursday, Aug. 29 at 8 p.m. ET. This is a must-watch game if you’re a Tigers or Yellow Jackets fan; it’ll be the first we see of Trevor Lawrence and Clemson’s offense since it thrashed Alabama in the national championship game last season, and it’ll give us the first glimpse at the post-triple-option era at Georgia Tech.
