So it appears that the game is on ACC Network Extra - like the only channel I don't get on YouTube TV. How is everyone watching this?

Cable.
Fox sports Sun here in NE Florida.

I use the ESPN app on Roku.

Whadya mean I can't take off my sweater? I'm HOT!

Wait I was gonna do the YouTube tv free trial to watch. Is NBCSN on a special package or some such?

"That kid you're talking to right there, I think he played his nuts off! And you can quote me on that shit!" -Bud Foster

NBC Sports and NBC Sports Philadelphia are listed on my youtube tv channel list, but the last time I tried to watch an accnx game it wasn't available.

ACCNX is not a TV channel. It's the ACCN version of ESPN3.

But, in this case, the game is not an ACCNX game. It's RSN (produced by Fox). ESPN just lists it as ACCNX because that's their asset, but they black it out in most areas because it's available through other means.

Seeing as how you have NBC Sports Philly, you probably don't have NBC Sports Washington, so you're not going to get any ACC games on an NBC platform where you're at. Perhaps AT&T Sportsnet or SportsTime Ohio?

Here's the lists of RSNs carrying the game:

Leg! All the legs!

Check the fox sports regional channels.

However if it's on ACCN Extra, I'm pretty sure that is available on the ESPN app, which you can log in to with your YoutubeTV account. I had to do this on my Fire TV for my two TV setup before they caved and put the YouTubeTV app on Amazon devices.

How did you watch the UNC game on TV? This game should be in the same place.

I forget! I remember watching it but I think I ended up streaming it from some random place.

you can stream from watch ESPN with YouTube TV. At least, that's what I've done.

The VT basketball games have been ACCNX (including today's game). The quality of the stream is crap, but it's better than nothing.

Edit: Apparently FoxSports San Diego is carrying it and that's a local sports channel included in my YTTV. So, perhaps a regional sports channel on your YTTV.

This was the solution. I logged into espn dot com and I watched it on my laptop

Watching on espnplayer.com out of Europe. Best deal for me in Asia, but I think I would do it even from America. $13/month for every game on any of the ESPNs including ACCN and ACCNX. You just have to VPN into Europe. They also have a 7 day free trial.

I really feel like we should fucking smoke this GT team, that's what my gut says anyway. But who knows what happens.

Going to the game with my 9 year old daughter - her first football game.

Hoping to see this streak end in person en route to the other two streaks staying alive and well

That's awesome. Hope you guys have a blast!!

Keep raising her right!

I'll be watching from home, but I really wish I had bought tickets to this one. I love Atlanta and I'm less than 2 hours away on a good day.

I feel like we should definitely win, but I am nervous about a let down game after being on such a good run. I would love for us to come out and get straight to business on both sides of the ball and take control of the game early.

Cousin getting married in Philadelphia. I'm a touch hung over at the moment, but should be taking advantage of the open bar by half time. May just be grabbing updates on the phone for the game tho.

Just hoping we crush them like we should. Every season needs a good old fashioned blow out and this is the right spot for one.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

No boozles for me today. I'm visiting my dad this weekend and we have a fleet of vehicles to work on. So we will probably be in his garage listening to the game on the radio cursing (hopefully cars and not football).

I'm pretty optimistic. To me, we've played like a "good team" since the Duke game. And good teams easily beat the teams that they're supposed to (like GT)

I found TKP after two rails from TOTS then walking back to my apartment and re-watching the 2012 Sugar Bowl. I woke up the next day with this username.

Just need 1 of the next 3 to keep the bowl streak alive, considering where we were a month ago that is awesome and seems achievable! Got a fully stocked beer fridge and I will be opening several today methinks...

I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction:

Coffee and water. Still trying to get over this damn cold.

Probably watch the game from my bed and feeling like we stomp some serious yellow jacket ass.

Making my first trip over to Bobby Dodd. Doing a little tailgating with the fam. Weather looks perfect.

Im nervous, but that's good because it means we're playing for something again. Gonna do my best to make some noise for our team.

Some sort of beer. I need to hit the Teet before the game.
From my house probably.
I feel we are going to win big.

Water currently.
Feel pretty confident.
Going to the mens basketball game today , ill have to catch the football game on haokietapes tomorrow

Seriously glad you're able to TKP and watch the game after such. Best wishes for a speedy recovery, and hope the Hokies brighten your day.

Oh, 22? Walk it off dude, walk it off.

How am I feeling?

"That move was slicker than a peeled onion in a bowl of snot." -Mike Burnop

I've been raking leaves since about 8 this morning. I'll keep going till about 2 and pop open a devils backbone trail angel and hop in the shower.

"That kid you're talking to right there, I think he played his nuts off! And you can quote me on that shit!" -Bud Foster

Jesus maybe it's time to invest in a leaf machine if you spend that many hours raking.

This is our second fall here. I bought a leaf blower last week and will get a mulching mower in the spring. When they built this neighborhood they left a lot of trees on purpose and I love it. But damn the leaves are a multi weekend project haha

"That kid you're talking to right there, I think he played his nuts off! And you can quote me on that shit!" -Bud Foster

Used to rake 'em, got older and lazier, and maybe a bit wiser. Now, I mow 'em. Mowing my small lawn a couple of times is sooooooo much easier than raking for hours, is better for the soil, and gets me back inside for football.

Reel men fish on Wednesdays

Yeah the plan for next year is to mulch them as they fall. Either way it's so many leaves they'll still have to be removed but that'll take the edge off.

"That kid you're talking to right there, I think he played his nuts off! And you can quote me on that shit!" -Bud Foster

Yes. Mulch mower them and add lime, always check your soil ph

Tell me about it. My property is a half acre and I have 18 oak trees that are all 60+ feet tall, two of which are red/black oaks, which drop their leaves much later than the other 16 white oaks. My maples and hickory drop even earlier than the white oaks. Every October and November weekend contains a few hours of leaf clearing.

A few things I've found, given that my township collects leaf piles at the curb:

- The leaf blower is amazing but when it gets windy you can get screwed pretty hard. In the front yard, I blow the leaves down toward the curb and when the pile gets too big to blow, I sloppily rake it down the yard by a few meters and clean up the ones I missed with the blower again. Rinse and repeat until you reach the curb.

- Leaf blowers that also claim to be leaf vacuums suck (both literally and figuratively). Not worth it, only the blower is valuable.

- I also have one of those blowers mounted on a cart and believe you me that thing is POWERFUL, like five times as powerful as the best hand held blower I've ever had. These are cool but mine is a little busted so I don't use it.

- I use my lawn mower with the side discharge to chop up leaves and discharge them to a central pile, progressively lowering the deck over the course of each fall weekend so I cut the grass at the same time. No leaves get left behind, and when the grass goes dormant it is already short enough that leaves don't get caught up in the grass. Makes blowing and raking way easier

- I don't use the mower to bag the leaves generally because the bag is too small and I'd end up emptying the bag scores of times to clean the yard, which is a pain and takes forever. I also don't mulch much, there are too many leaves and they'd cover the grass. A little is ok but not in the quantity I have - I have to physically remove the leaves or else.

- The critical element: A tarp. A big one.
Whether you're mowing the leaves up, raking them, or blowing them, there will eventually be a big pile that will become hard to move. Once you've created a pile of any sort, open up the tarp on the ground and rake the leaves onto the tarp. The tarp is easy to drag to the curb. This cuts leaf clearing time down by a TON. Everyone in my neighborhood does this, unless they have a riding mower with a giant container on the back.

Tarp. Get one. It's easily the best idea in leaf clearing. I won't turn back.

Now if you have a yard like mine and you get an ocean of acorns every few years, then good luck, I still don't have a good solution for that pain in the ass.

The Billy goat or something similar I'm telling y'all.

Not one to talk up products, but I used to live in a similar situation and the Cyclone Rake XL is the ticket. Makes it soooooo easy and the leaves are cut into such little pieces that you can clear so much more space without having to dump. When you are ready to dump, just back it up to where you want your pile and tip it up. That simple.

Home with Jack on the rocks. Nervous hoping for no letdown.

As an early Bday present, my GF got me tix for the B's-Caps game tonight @ the Garden. We're having dinner @ Legal in Boston beforehand, so I'll be on the road at kick-off. The game is actually on NESN+ here locally (I'm recording it for future viewing), so hopefully the Legal bartender can find the game on TV. We always sit at the bar wherever we go.

So, great wine with dinner, followed by incredibly expensive beers at the Garden.

I'm very optimistic...

By my FILs bedside. In a hospital in Ohio. Hoping for a Hokie win for me, and Nittany Lion win for him. And any good news from the doctors.

Will follow the game on Twitter.

Picked up a 12 pack of Coronas and watching the first half from my couch in Salt Lake. Will probably migrate to Buffalo Wild Wings to finish off our game and watch a couple of afternoon games. I'm feeling pretty optimistic this week about our chances to keep our bowl streak alive!
