CHARLOTTE, N.C.  – The ACC Digital Network (ACCDN) brought to you by Ruby Tuesday announced today its fall programming, revealing the return of ACC Live and the launch of several new series. The ACCDN fall programming, beginning just in time for college football kickoff, features the great game previews, highlights and Must See Moments that have defined the network in its first two years, while adding more fun and interactive elements into its content offerings.

The ACCDN weekly lineup, highlighted by ACC Live streaming on theACC.com at noon ET on Wednesdays, will keep fans up to speed on the conference. The ACCDN will release exclusive shows and features daily, while still delivering up-to-date conference and general sports news, in addition to its weekday recap, ACC Now.

“The ACC Digital Network will once again deliver first-class programming that highlights all 15 ACC member schools,” said ACC Commissioner John Swofford. “The ACCDN fall lineup combines great talent and programming to provide fans with more content than ever before.”

"Our mix of live and on-demand programming this fall will serve the fans of our 15 ACC schools on a daily basis hitting all the key moments of each week,” said ACCDN General Manager Matt Carstens. “The addition of these new feature segments, and continued live coverage, will entertain any college sports fan. We are committed to delivering the important information and great moments of the season, while looking into the deep history of our schools and their athletes."

The fall lineup kicked off Monday with a fascinating and revealing candid ACC One-on-One interview with Clemson’s Dabo Swinney in preparation for the SEC vs. ACC showdown between Georgia and Clemson in Death Valley. Next Monday will start the weekly Ram Power Plays.
