The Clemson-N.C. State game on Nov. 17 will not be played under the lights. That's all the two teams will know until next Sunday after ESPN elected to use its third six-day option of the season.

The five game put 'on hold' will be played in various time slots, including noon, 12:30 p.m., 3 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.

Wake Forest's game at Notre Dame will kick off at 3:30 p.m., as previously announced, while the North Carolina-Virginia on Thursday has a 7:30 p.m. kickoff.

In addition to the N.C. State-Clemson game, other match-up include Virginia Tech at Boston College, Florida State at Maryland, Duke at Georgia Tech, and South Florida at Miami.
