What time, TV channel is Miami-Duke football game 2016 on?

Officials confer on the field following a controversial kickoff return, with eight laterals, that ended in a touchdown to end the game and give Miami the win, 30-27, over Duke in an NCAA college football game, in Durham, N.C., Saturday, Oct. 31, 2015. A penalty for a block in the back was called during the play, and one player appeared to be down before a lateral, but the play was allowed to stand as a touchdown. On Sunday, Nov. 1, 2015, the ACC announced that the officiating and replay crew has been suspended for two games for mistakes made during the play. (AP)

The Hurricanes’ chance to end the regular season on a high note come at 3:30 p.m. Saturday.

Miami (7-4, 4-3 ACC) will face Duke in a game televised on ESPN2. UM’s last three games were carried by the ACC’s regional networks.

The Blue Devils (4-7, 1-6) will visit Hard Rock Stadium for the first time since 2014, when Miami put together one of its best games of a disappointing 6-7 season. Its 22-10 win was part of a three-game winning streak that preceded a four-game slide to end the year.

Miami is in essentially the opposite spot now, having won three after losing four. Also, it has Mark Richt and his staff at the helm, rather than Al Golden.

Last year in Durham, the Miami-Duke game was marred by officiating controversy. Numerous erroneous calls were made, including one that helped create one of the wildest finishes in college football history: the infamous eight-lateral kick return touchdown by Corn Elder that gave UM a 30-27 win. The ACC suspended its crew from that game.

No word yet on the officials for this week.
