GREENSBORO, N.C. (WNCN) – The 2019-20 ACC men’s basketball season will tipoff with more intensity than normal.

The ACC will start the season with conference match-ups. 

The announcement comes as the ACC moves to a 20-game conference schedule. 

Commissioner John Swofford said called the round of conference games “truly unique.”

The ACC Network will broadcast four of the early-season conference games.

Those games include:

  • Louisville at Miami – Nov. 5
  • Georgia Tech at N.C. State Nov. 5
  • Notre Dame at North Carolina – Nov. 6
  • Virginia at Syracuse – Nov. 6

“We believe it will be a great way to tipoff another outstanding season of ACC basketball for our coaches, student-athletes and fans,” Swofford said. “In addition, we’re pleased to have a terrific partner in ESPN to televise these games on the new ACC Network and its other channels.”

Three additional conference games will be aired on ESPN2 or ESPNU.

  • Virginia Tech at Clemson – Nov. 5
  • Wake Forest at Boston College – Nov. 6
  • Florida State at Pitt – Nov. 6

Duke is set to compete in the State Farm Champions Classic on Nov. 5, which will be aired on ESPN. 

All seven conference game times will be determined at a later date.
