ESPN College Football TV Schedule

Don’t miss the update that we’ve added to yesterday’s entry by clicking here.

ESPN has released its television schedule for the early part of the college football season.

We already knew that the Thursday night games vs Cincinnati and Florida State were scheduled for the WWL. But, it was a pleasant surprise to learn that the Wolfpack’s season opener against Western Carolina was going to be streamed on ESPN3, a re-vamped version of ESPN360.

The Cincinnati and FSU games will be on ESPN, while the Western Carolina match up will stream on Link to ESPN schedule

NC State’s 2010 Football Schedule is shared below. For a robust conversation about the schedule, your can click on the original entry that we ran when the schedule was announced.

Oct. 28 FLORIDA STATE (Thurs) 7:30 on ESPN

In case you missed it, we had a fantastic national signing day entry on the site that you can see by clicking here.

Additionally, ACCNow has this blog entry about the Wolfpack’s schedule:

With two road games outside the ACC, the Wolfpack has six home games, compared to eight last season, and only four on Saturdays.

The two Thursday night games should be fun with Cincinnati, the two-time defending Big East champ, coming in on Sept. 16 and Florida State on Oct. 28.

While Cincinnati has a new coach, Brian Kelly left for Notre Dame after a 12-0 regular season in 2009, the Wolfpack will only have four days after a trip to Central Florida to prepare for the Bearcats.

Two other points of interest: State should start 1-0 for the first time in Tom O’Brien’s fourth season with FCS opponent Western Carolina as the opener. The UNC finale expirement lasted one year. Maryland will close the schedule with the Pack visiting UNC on Nov. 20.

Unless State’s defense makes a dramatic improvement, another middle of the road record, 6-6 give or take one game either way, is to be expected with this schedule.

    I have to agree…it’s a tough schedule.

    The good news is I can now use “but there are only 4 Saturday’s I’m gone this season” with my wife when she starts to complain!

    The schedule is brutal. The 2nd game of the year at UCF is a “must win”. Tough, tough start to the season with a road trip to Orlando and then short week for hosting Cincinnati.

    It IS a difficult schedule, because we play only 6 home games, and only one of them is a probable sure win. I don’t think ECU will be very good this season, but it’s in Greenville and it is ECU.

    We may well start the season 2-3 or 1-4, and could end up 6-6 overall, or worse. If we do and have a healthy Russell Wilson all season, I expect many Wolfpackers will want TOB’s head. As bad as I’d hate to see that, it would be hard to argue against the obvious.

    WCU, ECU, Maryland, Wake, and UCF are all must wins if you want anything to happen this year. We lose any of those games you better realize how bad that is.

    Slightly off topic, but did anyone else get an email from about 3 game mini-packs? They have Cincinnati spelled Cincinatti. Unreal.

    I don’t think that ESPN has a contract with time warner so no streaming through road runner… I correct?

    I hear that Jabo Knott is coming off the streets of Lexington NC to help State get ready for the option versus Ga Tech.

    Ribs will be on the menu in Atlanta that day plus Old Milwaukee……….it dont get no better than this.

    Now if I can get hose crafty agronomy professors from Raleigh to drive south we’ll fly fish Friday evening, smoke ribs Saturday morning and lament the prose of Donald Davidson Saturday evening.
