Not counting last week's "week zero" contests, this is the real first college football Saturday of the 2019 season. One big change - fans of ACC teams are going to want to figure out how to watch the ACC Network.

The ACC Network launched just a few weeks back. Saturday, there are three major games the network will be broadcasting - East Carolina vs. NC State, Virginia Tech vs. Boston College and Virginia vs. Pitt.

ESPN plans on broadcasting 40 college football games on the ACC Network this season. It'll also be huge during college basketball season.

Some cable providers aren't carrying the ACC Network. But many are. Here's the list of channels for the network for the fall of 2019:

Verizon Fios: 329 for SD and 829 for HD

DirecTV: 612

Dish Network: 402

Spectrum: 388

Altice: 248

You can also watch the network on Sling, YouTube TV, Hulu or PlayStation Vue.

The ACC Network also allows you to watch the games online - if you have access to them on your cable network.

This past Thursday, Clemson vs. Georgia Tech was the first game on the ACC Network. The Tigers, the defending national champions, won 52-14.
