Saturday’s Slate on ACCN
The Seminoles look to get back on track against Boston College, while the Eagles are coming off a 58-27 win at Syracuse. Saturday’s game in Chestnut Hill is the annual Red Bandana Game recognizing the heroics of Welles Crowther, a former BC lacrosse player, who saved over a dozen lives in the South Tower during the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.The 3:30 p.m. game features No. 19 Wake Forest with the second-best record in the ACC behind undefeated Clemson, traveling to Virginia Tech as the Demon Deacons look to keep pace with the Tigers. Meanwhile, the Hokies are one of only two teams in the Coastal Division in position to win out and capture the division crown.
Capping off the day is ACC Network Primetime Football featuring No. 15 Notre Dame at Duke. The Fighting Irish and Blue Devils last met at South Bend in 2016, with Duke claiming a 38-35 win on a made field goal in the closing minutes of the game. The matchup marks the first for the Fighting Irish on ACCN.
Wes Durham, Roddy Jones and Eric Wood will have the call from Alumni Stadium in Chestnut Hill, Mass., Chris Cotter, Mark Herzlich and Kelsey Riggs will be at Lane Stadium in Blacksburg, Va., and Dave O’Brien, Tim Hasselbeck and Katie George will be live from Wallace Wade Stadium, in Durham, N.C.
Mark Richt Returns to The Huddle

“I’m excited to be back at work this weekend,” said Richt. “I’m thankful for all of those whom have supported and prayed for me these past weeks as I rested and focused on my health. I can’t wait to rejoin my Huddle teammates – Jac, E-Mac and EJ – this weekend for what will be another exciting Saturday in the ACC.”
