The schedule for ESPN's ACC Big Monday  games has been announced with three appearances by the Tar Heels.

Via UNC press release:

The University of North Carolina men’s basketball team will be featured three times this coming season on ESPN’s Big Monday telecasts as part of the Atlantic Coast Conference’s eight-game weekly package.

The eight ACC games begin on Jan. 5 and on consecutive Mondays between Jan. 19 and March 2. (Big Monday will take a one-week hiatus as ESPN debuts the inaugural College Football National Championship Game on January 12.)

Carolina’s three Big Monday games are all home games against Notre Dame on January 5, Syracuse on January 26 and Virginia on February 2.

Each Big Monday game presented by Verizon involving an ACC team is set for a 7 p.m. start and will be televised nationally by ESPN or ESPN2.

This marks the second consecutive year the ACC has been featured as part of ESPN’s Big Monday package. Every game on the Big Monday schedule this season will include at least one team ranked in the ESPN.com preseason Top 25 poll, including No. 2 Duke, No. 6 UNC, No. 7 Virginia, No. 8 Louisville and No. 21 Syracuse.

The complete 2014-15 ACC basketball schedule, with dates, starting times and television broadcast information, will be released later this month.
