ACC Announces 2011 Volleyball Television Schedule

Aug. 5, 2011

GREENSBORO, N.C. – A total of nine volleyball matches featuring Atlantic Coast Conference teams are scheduled to be televised during the 2011 season, Commissioner John Swofford announced today.
The slate of matches features five primetime matchups, headlined by a battle between rivals Duke and North Carolina on October 19th at 6:00 p.m. The Tar Heels and Blue Devils finished 2010 atop the conference standings with only one match separating the two teams.

ESPNU has announced that all of their Wednesday Night Women’s Volleyball broadcasts, now in its second year, will be broadcast in high definition. Two of the ACC’s matches will be featured on the program, including the Miami at Florida State match on September 14th and the North Carolina at Duke match in October.

Two matches, Duke at Georgia Tech in October and Florida State at Clemson in November can be seen worldwide online at ESPN3.com.

The remaining five matches on the schedule will be broadcast by the ACC’s Regional Sports Network partners. Through an agreement with Raycom Sports and several sublicense agreements, the ACC’s regional syndication distribution (referred to as RSN), will include Fox Sport South, Fox Sports Florida and other regional cable partners throughout the ACC footprint to be announced later.

The conference as a whole will be looking to improve on one of its best years after finishing the 2010 season with a 108-39 (.739) out-of-conference record, the best in ACC history. The conference has sent a league-record five teams to the NCAA Volleyball Championship for two straight years and has had a representative reach the regional final in both years as well, with Florida State advancing to the Round of 8 in 2009 and Duke repeating the feat in 2010.

The television schedule will feature volleyball matches on eight different campuses and include 10 of the conference’s 12 teams.
