How to watch 2018 ACC spring football games online
Nearly all the ACC spring football games will be on ACC Network Extra. Clemson is the only ACC team that will have its spring game broadcast live on ESPN.
2018 ACC spring football game previews, key storylines
The most anticipated ACC spring football game will be Florida State’s game on April 14. The Seminoles are the only team in the conference with a new head coach, and this will be the first opportunity for the public to see Willie Taggart on the sidelines in Tallahassee. Taggart replaces Jimbo Fisher, who left in December for Texas A&M.
But that’s hardly the only significant storyline for ACC football this spring. The quarterback position alone should produce several competitions during spring games.
The most intriguing of them all will likely come in Louisville. This spring will present ACC football fans with the first chance to see what quarterback will look like for the Cardinals without Lamar Jackson. Sophomore Jawon Pass is the favorite to win the job, but redshirt freshman Malik Cunningham also figures to see some significant action during the spring game on April 14.
The quarterback battle in Clemson shouldn’t be too shabby either. Senior Kelly Bryant led the Tigers back to the College Football Playoffs in his first season as a starter, but highly-touted 5-star quarterback prospect Trevor Lawrence is pushing Bryant for the starting role this spring. If Lawrence has a big spring game, things could get interesting behind center for the Tigers.
And don’t forget about the Miami Hurricanes, who will have their spring game on April 14 after not holding one last year. Senior Malik Rosier helped the Hurricanes begin last season 10-0, but a three-game losing streak to end 2017 placed doubts into people’s minds about his ability to lead Miami to an ACC Championship. Rosier will be out to prove fans wrong and reaffirm that he’s the starter for the Hurricanes.
N.C. State will get things rolling for ACC spring football games with its kickoff on Saturday, April 7. There apparently isn’t too many superstitious people in upstate New York, as Syracuse follows its division rival with the second earliest ACC spring game kickoff on Friday, April 13.
Although game times are still to be determined for a few schools, nine of the 14 teams in the conference will host their spring game on Saturday, April 14.
Georgia Tech and Virginia have the two latest spring games this season. The Yellow Jackets will hold their game on Friday, April 20 while the Cavaliers bring up the rear with a very late spring game on Saturday, April 28.
