In addition, the lineup includes the Dr Pepper ACC Championship Game from Charlotte and the previously announced four Thursday ESPN College Football Primetime telecasts and a game on the Friday after Thanksgiving.

Additional games will be announced as the season progresses. Highlights:

· The early selections include multiple games involving teams ranked in an early ESPN.com preseason top 25 poll, highlighted by the Saturday Night Football season-debut pitting No. 12 Clemson against No. 7 Georgia from the SEC on Saturday, Aug. 31, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. Additional highlights:
