ACC LIVE's "Hot Ticket" segment delivers all the sights and sounds from key conference matchups, to give viewers an unparalleled feel for the ACC total game experience. Monday's show finds ACC LIVE in Atlanta, Ga., for a conference clash - No. 4 Miami at Georgia Tech. In their brief history, the Yellow Jackets have bested the Hurricanes by a count of 6-3. This is just the second time the teams have met since 1978 - the latest duel came at the '99 Toyota Gator Bowl, where Miami came away victorious, 28-13. Georgia Tech is 6-1 at home against the Hurricanes and needs to go 7-1 to prevent a 1-2 conference start, which would virtually knock them out of the ACC title chase. Miami, on the other hand, is in contention for a national title, and can continue to live the undefeated dream with a victory at Bobby Dodd Stadium on Saturday. This is a crucial game for both teams.
Host Mike Hogewood spotlights Heather O'Reilly, North Carolina soccer player and youngest member of the USA women's soccer team that won gold at the '04 Summer Olympics. The '03 Freshman of the Year has helped her team get off to a 9-0-1 start, which has them ranked No. 1 in the country. The Tarheels are becoming just as recognized for soccer as they are for men's hoops - it's no surprise that this Olympian came from the Tarheel soccer machine that continues to churn out high caliber players, one after another.
Three countries, 12 states, and a coach from Northern Ireland - what could they have in common? Reporter Jenn Hildreth lets viewers know that it's a love for soccer that bonds the men's soccer team at Clemson. Regardless of birthplace, these diverse Tigers are connecting well and are 5-2 overall and 1-1 in conference play, keeping them in the hunt for an ACC title.
The show also features two Virginia super fans, Rose and J.W. Humphries, from Colonial Heights, Va. Josh Klaff shares about how the two have managed to attend every UVA football game over the past 12 seasons (home and away).
Also, the show's "ACC Headlines" segment delivers the latest news and notes from around the conference, to keep viewers up to date on all the action.
