ANOTHER UPSET SATURDAY

VIRGINIA 16, #18 UNC 13, OT – The Heels defense should have a few words with the offense that committed three back-breaking turnovers. The UNC defense held the Wahoos to 3 points in the first 57 minutes and that should be good enough to win most games. Credit UVA for being resilient and making another great comeback in this crazy rivalry dominated by the home team.

BOSTON COLLEGE 28, #17 VIRGINIA TECH 23 – BC QB Chris Crane did all he could to keep the Hokies in the game throwing two pick sixs, but Tyrod Taylor and the Hokies young (and not very sure handed) receivers couldn’t generate enough offense to hold off the Eagles.

MARYLAND 26, #21 WAKE FOREST 0 – Maryland did everything right on offense, defense and special teams. You want inconsistent? Look up “Terps” in your Funk & Wagnall. Evidently, if the Deacons can’t kick field goals they can’t score. Their offense is in a horrible slump getting shut out for the first time in 124 games.

MIAMI 49, DUKE 31 – The Canes tossed 35 unanswered second-half points at the Blue Devils. Freshmen Jacory Harris replaced starter Robert Marve and put on a show…He threw four touchdown passes and ran for another and became the first Miami quarterback to both throw for four scores and account for five TDs since 2005, when Kyle Wright did it against Wake Forest. Hmmm

GEORGIA TECH 21, CLEMSON 17 – We hope Oliver Purnell has his boys ready for hoop season ‘cuase everybody at Clemson is gonna be in a foul mood by December. The Tiger Walk fired up the fans, but Clemson’s foibles continued including an pick six on a flea-flicker play. Oops. Wunderkind Willy Korn got hurt and, previously thought to be injured and due for surgery today QB, Cullen Harper took back over to no avail
