CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – North Carolina is expected to host an ESPN Thursday night game for the second time in school history in 2013, according to multiple sources.

The game will be over UNC's fall break on Oct. 17.

The 2013 ACC football schedule is expected to be released as early as Monday, according to sources. The schedule release was delayed as Florida State and new conference member Syracuse worked to finalize their nonconference schedules in recent weeks.

With UNC’s four nonconference dates already set, the Thursday night opponent will be from the ACC. The Tar Heels are scheduled for home conference games against Miami, Duke, Virginia and Boston College in 2013.

North Carolina hosted its first Thursday night game against Florida State on Oct. 22, 2009. The Tar Heels led the Seminoles 24-6 in the third quarter before losing 30-27.

North Carolina will open the 2013 season at South Carolina on Aug. 29. UNC will also host Middle Tennessee State (Sept. 7), East Carolina (Sept. 28) and Old Dominion (Nov. 23).

Carolina is 6-4 all-time in ESPN Thursday night games.
