According to the article, the schedule is not completely finalized yet. There are possibilities of several of these games appearing on TV.

"I know there's been some interest from Raycom with us making this move," Hirschman said, "and when you're playing those caliber opponents, there's also some interest from ESPNU.

"Let's face it: We want to be on television as much as we can. So you want to keep the door open. And when you do that, you don't want to tell your fans, 'We're playing this team on this date at this time' when TV could move that game two weeks."

UPDATE: Here's what fans of NC State and Clemson are saying on their forums.
