ACC Week 13 Preview

The ACC has plenty on tap this weekend, including some very good rivalries. No. 4 Florida (10-1, 7-1 SEC) and No. 10 Florida State (10-1, 7-1 ACC) has almost become like a national championship semi-final provided some teams lose. After Miami (6-5, 4-3 ACC) self-imposed another bowl ban this week, Duke (6-5, 3-4 ACC) still needs a win to improve their bowl position. We gave that game an extended look with a weekend spotlight. Virginia Tech (5-6, 3-4 ACC) takes […]

Bowl Projection Roundup: 11/19

Another week in college football, another BCS shake-up. The Big East bowl projections are coming down to wire, with Rutgers, Louisville or Cincinnati likely making the trip down south to Orlando. The ACC is still too close to call, but Miami’s self imposed bowl ban for the second straight year made the picture a little bit clearer.

ACC Week 11 Preview

No. 10 Florida State (8-1, 5-1 ACC) looks to keep its ACC championship and BCS berth hopes alive when it travels to Blacksburg on Thursday night to face Virginia Tech (4-5, 2-3 ACC). The Seminoles lead the series 22-12-1, but the teams are split over the last four meetings (including a pair of ACC Championship Games). Though the Hokies are experiencing a down year (their five losses is the most under Frank Beamer since 2003), they remain a dangerous foe […]
