Miami’s home game against Virginia Tech — a game that could decide the ACC’s Coastal Division representative in the conference championship game — will not be a noon game.

Until next week, that’s all we know.

ESPN has exercised a six-day hold for both Virginia Tech at Miami and a critical Atlantic Division game the same day: Clemson at North Carolina State.

The ACC said those games will be played at either 3:30 p.m. or in prime time between 7:15 and 8 p.m., and will be broadcast on either ABC or ESPN.

The league will confirm start times and networks after this week’s games.

No. 8 Miami (6-0, 4-0 ACC) visits North Carolina (1-7, 0-5) at noon Saturday (ESPN2).

No. 13 Virginia Tech (6-1, 2-1) travels to Duke (4-4, 1-4) at 7:20 p.m.

No. 7 Clemson (6-1, 4-0) hosts Georgia Tech (4-2, 3-1) at 8 p.m. on either ABC or ESPN2.

No. 14 N.C. State (6-1, 4-0) visits No. 9 Notre Dame (6-1) at 3:30 p.m. (NBC)
