GENTLEMEN: START YOUR ENGINES!

Four ACC teams--Georgia Tech, Miami, NC State and Wake Forest--begin the 2008 season--the ACC’s 56th football campaign--on Thursday night, with seven others scheduled for Saturday contests as all but Florida State open play on the season’s first weekend. If the Seminoles do have a game, Coach Bowden has forgotten where it is.
