    FB: Boston College 26, Duke 6

    The game is far away, but the TV channel list is available so we might as well start the thread now:
    https://theacc.com/sports/2020/9/11/..._BC_DU_20.aspx

    The hope is that later in the week there will be a map that will show you options based on your location. For now, assume that if you are in the market for one of the listed channels, you can watch on TV or online using that channel. Those outside of the ACC footprint who subscribe to ACC Network should also be able to watch on WatchESPN. Some providers will also have the game on ESPN College Extra for those outside the conference area.

    No odds posted yet at vegasinsider.com but I expect Duke to open as a five points favorite.

    The BC starting QB is a transfer from Notre Dame. He was a four star recruit ranked #83 nationally in his class. He will be a handful.

    Sagarin says Duke by 9 at home. Sagarin also puts the rest of our ACC games basically in the tossup category except this one. (@UVA is the worst at a 4 point loss.) Keep in mind our opponents have played 0-1 games. If your biggest improvement between Game 1 and Game 2, I like this advantage against BC and UVA.

    We really have no idea what to expect with this new coach other than this will not be a repeat of the 9-7 fireworks from 2015. He was promoted from a defensive position coach to HC. You might get Dabo Swinney, but you also might get Carl Franks, Chuck Amato, and John Bunting. Fun fact: BC's OC was UNC's OC in John Bunting's last game, and we can ruminate whether it should have been Ted Roof's. The score was 45-44 UNC on a missed PAT. (Yes, too soon for me.)

    BC gave up almost 200 on the ground last year and close to 500 overall. If we struggle to run against BC, this could be a long season. BC probably isn't going to drop much from the 250 per game rushing they had last year. They were not a strong passing team last year, and I'm not sure you can expect drastic improvement there in Game 1 in the current environment. We have a few downs of tape on the QB from last year's ND game. He didn't throw the ball but ran for 24 yards.

    Score early and often is my best guess. I generally avoid watching members #10-14.5 in the ACC, and I can't recall seeing BC in person since the rainy 9-7 shootout.

    Any updates on injuries from Saturday? Too soon to tell? Upper body/lower body? Unspecified? Day-to-day?
    [redacted] them and the horses they rode in on.

    I wouldn't put much, if any, stock in Sagarin until at least several games have been played...

    RSN is Fox Sports carolinas in Greensboro, Spectrum channel 51. Our game wasn't listed in their program guide yesterday when I looked, but now it is.
    Ozzie, your paradigm of optimism!

    Interesting that it is listed as ESPN3 and not ACCNX like RSN games last season.

    Can someone definitely within the ACC footprint please check their WatchESPN schedule to see if the game is listed? There may be different rules given the current special circumstances.

    Usually if you're in the ACC footprint the game is not​ available to stream online for these RSN games.

    Per your request, I took a look. It shows up on the list as ESPN3 here in Durham. Couldnít bring up the specifics, itís just in the list at this point. Donít know if thatís normal three days ahead.

    This doesn't tell us whether it will be blacked out, historically blacked out games show up on the list and don't tell you they are blacked out in your area until you try to play them.

    Thatís what awhom111 has been doing for years, providing us a valuable service by identifying the broadcast details, including blackout areas. It appears that the blackout list isnít showing up as it did in previous seasons. All I did was provide awhom111 with the information requested from within the ACC area (no doubt that being in the Durham city limits is within the footprint.) If we donít get more info before game time, Iíll try to get the game on ESPN3 while watching on Fox Sports South to see if things have changed regarding the blackout. The lack of information may be an indication that ESPN is changing the ďrulesĒ because of the pandemic, or it may be that they just havenít gotten around to posting the blackout area yet.

    Ozzie, Fox Sports South is channel 50 in Durham, 51 is the Golf Channel here. Is it different in Greensboro, or were you subconsciously wanting to watch the US open?

    (Spectrum likes to keep channel numbers consistent in a general area, thatís why Iím asking.)
