The ACC on Thursday announced kickoff times for ACC controlled games in the first three weeks of the 2019 football season, including a 3:30 p.m. start for the Texas A&M-Clemson game at Death Valley on Sept. 7.

ABC will televise the game nationally.

Clemson, the defending national champion coming off a 15-0 season, is likely to be ranked No. 1 in most preseason polls.

Texas A&M gave Clemson its toughest test last season as the Tigers pulled out a 28-26 victory in College Station and projects as their most challenging regular-season opponent in 2019.

Kickoff times for Clemson's other two games in the first three weeks were previously announced: 8 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 29, for a home game against Georgia Tech; 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 14, for a game at Syracuse.
