Proof positive that ABC/ESPN was waiting to see if Virignia Tech won to decide if they wanted to grab this game instead of letting Raycom have it. UNC will host VT next Saturday at 3:30 PM in a game what will be televised regionally on ABC.
This is a great development for the Heels. First, a 3:30 game means it will be easier to get the sell out crowd there by kickoff. Noon games are notorious for having a slow arriving crowd. This will help in that respect. Also, this is a bona fide sign of how important this game is and that ABC/ESPN thinks it will pull ratings.
Just another indication that the Heels are moving up. If they can win this one, things will really take off such as being ranked.
