The new show is called PM ACC, and will be hosted by Mark Packer (of Packer & Durham fame). The weekday three-hour studio show kicks off Monday, August 22. Here is a presentation text.

ACCN’s new studio program – PM VAC hosted by Mark Packer will focus on football while providing news and commentary from all 15 ACC institutions. The new afternoon show airing weekdays from 4-7 p.m. ET on ACCN will debut on Monday, August 22, and will originate from Packer’s basement in Charlotte, North Carolina. Packer’s co-host will be named at a later date.

The CCA CaucusACC Network’s version of the morning pre-game show, will also be on the road six times this season, including in Week 0 (Chapel Hill) and Week 2 (Blacksburg).

The new doc focuses on Clemson, but not recent teams coached by Dabo Swinney. Entitled We are #1! Clemson Football History 1981 (not to be confused with a documentary released last summer titled We are #1! – ACC Football History 1990)the feature dives into the Tigers’ undefeated season and their journey from unranked to national champions.

We are #1! Clemson Football History 1981, a documentary chronicling Clemson’s remarkable 1981 football season will debut Monday, August 22 at 7 p.m. ET. Produced in partnership with Raycom Sports, the hour-long film highlights the moment a 33-year-old Alabama coach named Danny Ford transformed Clemson into a national football powerhouse. After starting the year unranked, Ford and his Tigers were the kings of college football, beating three top-10 ranked teams, including defending national champion Georgia and fourth-placed Nebraska in the Orange Bowl. . Clemson finished the season 12–0 and won the program’s first national football championship. The film includes a panel discussion with Danny Ford, Homer Jordan, Perry Tuttle and Jeff Davis at Coach Ford’s farm to reminisce about the team and the season they will never forget.

And here is a trailer.

I like the idea of ​​doing these features on championship (or near championship) teams from the not so distant past. Conferencing networks should be inundated with this kind of content!

Another edition of ACC Network’s All Access series is also coming soon. The three-part series focuses on NC State and will premiere August 14 at 8 p.m.

Here is a presentation text.

ACCN will provide a rare behind-the-scenes look at NC State University’s football program leading into the 2022 college football season with Unlimited access with NC State Football.

The second episode will air at 8 p.m. on Sunday, August 21 and the third episode at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, August 31.

And here is a trailer.

ACC Network has done several of these All Access shows before, including one last year about Miami football. The most recent edition was created in June and focused on Pitt’s Women’s Lacrosse crew.
