ACC Football Saturday

Kelvin Bryant and Amos Lawrence
Saturday, Oct 16


BOSTON COLLEGE @ #16 FLORIDA STATE (-22), Tallahassee, Fla., 12:00 PM, ESPN (XM 190/SIRIUS 212) – Ahhh, nothin’ says “good old days” like the Noles being the only ranked team in the ACC. B.C. is not good so Noles will really have to stumble to blow this one after their big win over Miami.

MARYLAND @ CLEMSON (-14), Clemson, S.C., 12:00 PM, ACC Network (XM 192/SIRIUS 214) – Dabo cares, Fridge cares, but even the Clemson crowd is likely to go party elsewhere by halftime. The Terps have vanquished the Tigers on their last two visits to Death Valley. Fear the (oblivious to “death”) Turtle.

N.C. STATE (-6.5) @ East Carolina (Pirates, 27,816 students, Greenville, NC), Greenville, N.C., 12:00 PM, CBSC (XM 191/SIRIUS 213) – Somebody at East Carolina must be awfully proud of the fact that they got the big boys in Raleigh and Chapel Hill to play the Pirates in the same year. Russell Wilson should rack up some big yards ECU allows 457 yards per game.

MIAMI (-19.5) @ DUKE, Durham, N.C., 1:00 PM, ESPN3.com (XM 193/SIRIUS 215) – Duke is coming off a bye week and Miami has to be extra cranky after losing at home to in-state rival FSU. Advantage Canes.

Middle Tennessee State (Blue Raiders, 22,299 students, Murfreesboro, TN) @ GEORGIA TECH (-19), Atlanta, Ga., 3:30 PM, ESPN3.com (XM 191/SIRIUS 213) – Which begs the question is there an Upper Tennessee State and/or a Lower Tennessee State to compliment Middle Tennessee State?

WAKE FOREST @ VIRGINIA TECH (-22.5), Blacksburg, Va., 3:30 PM, ESPNU (XM 190/SIRIUS 212) – Some people in the media have been talking about a bowl game for the Demon Deacons. Those people are wrong. Wake has no answers for Tyrod Taylor’s mobility.

NORTH CAROLINA (-6.5) @ VIRGINIA, Charlottesville, Va., 6:00 PM , ESPN3.com (XM192/SIRIUS 214) – This is the first true “away” game for the Heels this season. Too bad they have to go to C’ville where it seems like they haven’t won since Kelvin Bryant and Amos Lawrence were playing. Classic “irresistible force vs. immovable object” match up -- The Wahoo are ranked No. 10 in the country in passing defense, allowing just 151 yards per game. Yates is averaging 234 passing yards per game, and has eight touchdowns and just one interception.
