— Chapel Hill will be the site of the ACC regular-season finale between Duke and North Carolina as announced by the league Wednesday when the full conference schedules were revealed.

The March 7 meeting will be the 28th consecutive year the teams have met to close out their regular season.The last time the team’s did not square off in the regular-season finale was the 1986-87 season.

Duke will host the first of the two Battle of the Blues contests on Feb. 18 in a game that will be televised on ESPN and the ACC Network. It is the latest in the season the teams have ever been scheduled to face off for the first time. Last year's game, originally scheduled for Feb. 12, was forced back to Feb. 20 due to inclement weather.

NC State will host the tip-off of the conference’s first clash as Pittsburgh will be in PNC Arena for a noon start on Jan. 3.UNC will be at Clemson and Boston College will be at Duke later that day.

All 135 regular-season ACC games and each of the 14 ACC Tournament games will be available on an ESPN network, the ACC Network, CBS Sports or the league's regional cable networks.

Eight ACC games will be part of ESPN’s Big Monday lineup starting with a Jan. 5 meeting between UNC and Notre Dame in Chapel Hill. Duke will host Pittsburgh on Big Monday on Jan. 19. UNC will return to Big Monday on consecutive weeks -- Jan. 26 as they host Syracuse and Feb. 2 when they host Virginia.

Duke will play at Florida State on the following Monday.

Last year’s regular-season champion Virginia will open their ACC schedule at Miami and appear on three Big Monday telecasts.

Louisville, making their ACC debut this season will get their first taste of conference action Jan. 4 at Wake Forest. They will play in Chapel Hill one week later on the 10th and host Duke on the 17th. NC State will visit Louisville on Feb. 14.

In a battle of the two all-time winningest coaches in men’s Division I history, Mike Krzyzewski and Duke will visit Jim Boeheim and Syracuse on Valentine’s Day. The Orange will make a return trip two weeks later on the 28th.

Duke will play at NC State for a WRAL-TV broadcast on Jan 11. The Wolfpack will visit UNC for a Tuesday night game on Feb. 24.

Including non-conference schedules, UNC will play 14 games against NCAA Tournament teams from a year ago, Duke will play 12 and NC State will play nine.

“We want a great schedule,” said UNC head coach Roy Williams. “If you can be successful, the advantages (of playing a difficult non-conference schedule) are enormous.”

    I see another heart-breaker at the buzzer like Rivers over Zeller! Watch what you wish for Tarholes! GO DUKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Per usual, State's schedule is a complete joke: 20 home games and the only true road nonconference game at Purdue, as assigned by the ACC/B1G challenge.

    It's good for Gottfried though. At the end of this season, he'll be built up as having notched yet another 20-win season and NCAAT berth.

    It will be a good way to end the ACC for UNC with the win in Chapel Hill.
