ESPN has called for a six-day option for all ACC football games on Saturday, Nov. 10, the conference announced Monday.

This means that the start time for five conference games, including Maryland at nationally-ranked Clemson, will not be announced until, at the latest, noon on Sunday, the day after the Terps host Georgia Tech at Byrd Stadium.

At 4-4 overall and 2-2 in the ACC, Maryland begins a grueling November stretch with a 12:30 p.m. kickoff against the Yellow Jackets, followed by games at Clemson, against Florida State in College Park and at North Carolina to close out the season, four teams with a combined winning percentage of .706.

Contrast that with the Terps’ first eight games against teams with current winning percentages of .419, and that makes a fairly brutal slate to navigate, especially with zero scholarship quarterbacks left on the roster.
