ACC Football Saturday

Saturday, Oct 9

BOSTON COLLEGE @ N.C. STATE (-9.5), Raleigh, N.C., 12:00 PM, TV: ACC Network (XM 190/SIRIUS 212) – B.C. has QB problems and State can’t be happy about yakking up a big lead last Saturday to VT. Look for Russell Wilson to put up big numbers.

Central Michigan (Chippewas, 28,389 students, Mount Pleasant, MI) @ VIRGINIA TECH (-21.5), Blacksburg, Va., 12:00 PM , TV: ESPNU (XM 191/SIRIUS 213) – We’d make some crack about the Hokies notoriously scheduling BCS strength-of-schedule-busting pansies like the Chippewas, but there was that little slip up with the JMU Dukes…

CLEMSON @ NORTH CAROLINA (-2.5), Chapel Hill, N.C., 3:30 PM, TV: ABC/ESPN (XM 191/SIRIUS 213) – A “must win” for both teams if either wants to have a meaningful season. The sharpies in Vegas like the Heels who apparently aren’t playing any “away” games this year. (So far, one “neutral” and the rest at Keenan Stadium).

VIRGINIA @ GEORGIA TECH (-10), Atlanta, Ga., 3:30 PM, TV: ESPNU (XM 190/SIRIUS 212) – It’s the Al Groh Bowl, and the Jacket’s defensive coordinator is more likely to chalk up a W than his replacement Mike London is.

Navy (Midshipmen, 4,400 students, Annapolis, MD) (-4) @ WAKE FOREST, Winston-Salem, N.C., 6:30 PM, TV: ESPN3.com (XM 192/SIRIUS 216) – How many rematches of the Eagle Bank Bowl are we gonna get? Look for the Middies to get revenge if they can get their offense, which ran roughshod over the Terps, back under full sail.

#23 FLORIDA STATE @ #13 MIAMI (-6.5), Miami Gardens, Fla/, 8:00 PM, TV: ABC (XM 190/191)(SIRIUS 212/213) Wide right, wide left, wide right...whatever.  This game comes down to can the Noles defense shut down Jacory Harris while Christian Ponder plays good enough to not lose.  FSU's defense is much improved over last year and that makes this game interesting...that, and it's on at 8 p.m. on Saturday night (prime cocktail hours).
