The Atlantic Coast Conference schedule is out.
The Hurricanes will face FSU in Tallahassee on Saturday, Nov. 2.
The Canes open and close the season on a Friday! They open at Sun Life against FAU. They close at new ACC Coastal member Pittsburgh the day after Thanksgiving, Nov. 29. The Pitt game will be nationally televised by ABC, ESPN or ESPN2.

Virginia Tech comes to Sun Life for the second year in a row - this time on Nov. 9.
UM's open dates are Sept. 14 and Oct. 12.
The Sept. 14 date, a Saturday, falls on the holiest day of the year for Jews -- Yom Kippur.

So, what do you all think?
I think it's a terrific schedule if you're a Canes fan, other than a game that promises to be FREEZING cold on Nov. 29. But I've seen the Canes take care of business at Pitt in the freezing cold before.
