Seems strange that ESPN put the ACC championship game in prime time instead of a potential Texas-Oklahoma rematch.

because that’s the time the Big XII wants their championship game to be if I recall correctly even before this announcement from ESPN today

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the Pac-12 needs to move their future championship games to 3:30 on Saturday if they want to become relevant again in college football.
