Though every bit of the focus in South Florida this week is on Miami-Florida State, the Hurricanes have another big showdown the following week.

The ACC announced Monday that Miami’s Oct. 15 game against North Carolina will start at 3:30 p.m. It will be shown on either ABC, ESPN or ESPN2.

The network will be decided after Saturday’s games.

Last year, the 23rd-ranked Tar Heels beat the Hurricanes 59-23 to improve to 9-1 (6-0 ACC). Brad Kaaya threw for 326 yards and a touchdown, but UM trailed 31-0 at halftime and 45-0 with 10:26 left in the third.

UNC later lost to Clemson in the ACC title game.

Miami (4-0, 1-0 ACC) is ranked 10th this week. North Carolina (4-1, 2-0 ACC), which beat FSU last week 37-35 on a last-second field goal, moved up to 17th in the rankings.
