Atlantic Coast Conference basketball will again be featured on ESPN Monday nights during the 2014-15 season as part of its weekly Big Monday presented by Verizon platform.

Eight ACC games will be shown, beginning on Jan. 5 and on consecutive Mondays between Jan. 19 and March 2. Big Monday will take a one-week hiatus as ESPN debuts the inaugural College Football National Championship Game on January 12.

Each Big Monday game involving an ACC team is set for a 7 p.m. start and will be televised nationally by ESPN or ESPN2.

This marks the second consecutive year that ACC basketball games have been featured as part of ESPN’s Big Monday package. Every game on the Big Monday schedule this season will include at least one team ranked in the ESPN.com preseason Top 25 poll, including No. 2 Duke, No. 6 North Carolina, No. 7 defending ACC champion Virginia, No. 8 Louisville and No. 21 Syracuse.

The complete 2014-15 ACC basketball schedule, with dates, starting times and television broadcast information, will be released later this month.

The ACC Big Monday lineup:

January 5 – Notre Dame at North Carolina (ESPN or ESPN2), 7 p.m.
January 19 – Pitt at Duke (ESPN), 7 p.m.
January 26 – Syracuse at North Carolina (ESPN), 7 p.m.
February 2 – Virginia at North Carolina (ESPN), 7 p.m.
February 9 – Duke at Florida State (ESPN), 7 p.m.
February 16 – Pitt at Virginia (ESPN), 7 p.m.
February 23 – Louisville at Georgia Tech (ESPN), 7 p.m.
March 2 – Virginia at Syracuse (ESPN), 7 p.m.

    As expected, multiple appearances for UNC, Duke, Syracuse, Pitt and UVA.

    Zero appearances for NC State and Wake Forest, plus zero appearances for Virginia Tech, Clemson and Miami, but those three, unlike State and Wake, have football to carry them.

    The rich get richer in the new and improved ACC. Again, thank you, John.

    I see UNC gets 3 home dates on Big Monday . New comer Louisville only gets 1 game. I'm a little surprised at that too because its against Georgia Tech who has been struggling in recent years.

    Glad to see the 7 pm starts! I can't watch the later games, having to get up at 5 am. Good job ESPN!!!

    Love to see Monday Night Basketball, and also the early tip-off - so much better than those killer 9 pm games.

    Ville and Cuse are making the ACC the top conference again.
