Charlottesville, Va. – The Atlantic Coast Conference announced today the start times and television/Internet broadcasts for its early-season football games for the 2009 season.
The Cavaliers’ 2009 season opener against William & Mary on Sept. 5 has been scheduled to kickoff at 6 p.m. There is no television broadcast for this contest but it will be available online at ESPN360.com. The game will mark the start of the 120th season of football at Virginia.
Virginia’s Sept. 12 home game against TCU will start at 3:30 p.m. and be televised by ESPNU.
In May ESPN announced that ESPNU would launch on Comcast’s Digital Classic level of service in a majority of its cable systems by the upcoming college football season. It was also announced that Comcast.net will make ESPN360.com available at no extra charge. With the moves, ESPNU will increase its base by some 21 million to around 46 million homes.
On Sept. 19 the Cavaliers travel to Southern Mississippi for the team’s first road game. That contest is slated for a 3:30 p.m. start and will be televised by CBS College Sports.
After the first three weeks of the season (games through Sept. 19) game times and TV will be announced weekly with ESPN/ABC and Raycom Sports making their choices with a 12-day advanced notice beginning on Monday, Sept. 14 (for games on Saturday, Sept. 26).
Season tickets for UVa’s seven-game home slate are available at $269 for the general public and $215 for UVa faculty and staff. Reserved tickets are available in both the lower and upper levels at Scott Stadium. Seat assignments will be made at the time of order.
