Two of college football’s Top 10 teams will headline this week’s college football broadcast schedule across the ESPN networks.

No. 3 Notre Dame and No. 10 Miami will go under the lights Saturday night on ABC’s Saturday Night Football presented by Wells Fargo.  Saturday’s matchup marks only the fourth time that Notre Dame and Miami have faced each other since 1990 and the first time Miami has hosted Notre Dame since 1989.

Saturday’s matchup has plenty of key story lines.  Notre Dame running back Josh Adams is working hard to make his case for the Heisman Trophy this year.  So far this season, he has racked up almost 1,200 rushing yards and nine touchdowns.  The Fighting Irish’s head coach Brian Kelly has led a dramatic turnaround for the team this season, too.  After finishing last season at 4-8, this season has seen the team go 8-1 so far.

Miami head coach Mark Richt is in only his second year at the Hurricanes’ helm, has the team in the national spotlight for the first time in more than a decade.

While the Irish and ‘Canes are the headliners for this week’s ESPN networks college football broadcast schedule, it is only one of the games on that extensive schedule.  The networks’ Week 11 coverage opens Tuesday, Nov. 7 with a double header as Miami (Ohio) hosts Akron on ESPN2 and Buffalo hosts Bowling Green on ESPNU.  Coverage of both games is scheduled to start at 7:30 p.m.

The action continues Nov. 7 with another double header on ESPN2 and ESPNU respectively.  Toledo and Ohio are up first at 7 p.m. on ESPN2.  Eastern and Central Michigan follow at 8 p.m. on ESPNU.

North Carolina is on the road Thursday against Pittsburgh, with coverage starting at 7:30 p.m. on ESPN and ESPN Radio.  Over on ESPNU, Appalachian State plays host to Georgia Southern beginning at 7:30 p.m.

Friday will see yet another double header with the struggling Cincinnati Bearcats hosting the Temple Owls at 7 p.m. on ESPN2 and UNLV hosting BYU at 10:30 p.m. on ESPN2.

Saturday sees lots of action beginning at high noon as No. 15 Iowa State hosts No. 11 Oklahoma State either on ABC or ESPN2.  Seven more games are also scheduled across the networks at noon including games on ESPN Radio, the SEC Network and ESPN3.  This week’s action winds down Saturday night at 10:15 p.m. on ESPNU as Wyoming plays on the road against Air Force.
