The ACC trotted out its game times and TV assignments for the first three weeks of the regular season today.
Maryland's opener, as was already known, is on Labor Day (Sept. 6) against Navy. It's a 4 p.m. kickoff on ESPN.
As for the next two weeks, it's not really a huge surprise in either case.
The Sept. 11 game against Morgan State will start at 6 p.m. and receive the ESPN3.com (formerly ESPN360) treatment. Maryland made seven ESPN360 appearances last season. In addition, the Morgan State game makes it eight of Maryland's last 12 nonconference home games to appear on the online-only network.
The Sept. 18 game at West Virginia will kick off at noon and be televised by ESPNU.
