ONLY EIGHT MORE DAYS UNTIL ACC FOOTBALL

But, who’s counting? Heather Dinich at ESPN, that’s who!

Here’s her Tuesday lunchtime links with a few edits.

*Two Miami back-up quarterbacks are leaving.

*Finally! Good news for the Hokies. Their trio of injured tailbacks will return to practice today.

*Duke's secondary is taking shape, and sophomore safety Matt Daniels said the young group is ready to be tested.

*Wake Forest had its third and final preseason scrimmage today, and the coaching staff is hoping it answered some questions about lingering position battles.

*Maryland left guard Andrew Gonnella was lightly recruited and didn't hesitate when Maryland offered him a spot as a preferred walk-on. That might never have happened, though, if it weren't for a phone call to the Terps from his uncle, a former Maryland tackle.

*Boston College receiver Rich Gunnell will be catching from his third quarterback in as many seasons this fall, but this season could present his biggest challenges.

*Virginia's Chris Cook and Ras-I Dowling #19 might be the best cornerback tandem during the Al Groh era, but can they be the best in the ACC? Well, they certainly think so.

*Here's one for NC State fans regarding their season opener: South Carolina will be without one of its starting defensive ends.

*Seven former players who helped Miami Northwestern win a national title have vowed to do the same at Miami, and their promise -- and their bond -- continues.

*There's a huge shadow looming over Tallahassee, and it's the ghost of FSU past.
