The ACC match-up between the University of North Carolina Tar Heels and North Carolina State University Wolfpack will air Tuesday night at 9 p.m. on WRAL-TV, followed by an extended WRAL News at 11 p.m.

NCIS: Los Angeles and The Good Wife, the shows originally scheduled in that time slot, will air overnight so that viewers can record them and not miss an episode. The replays are slated to begin at 2:12 a.m. and 3:12 a.m., respectively.

Given the likelihood that the game runs longer than two hours, viewers are advised to record from 2 a.m. to 5 a.m. in order to ensure they get their entire program.
