NORTH CAROLINA 37, FLORIDA STATE 35 – Are they chanting “Bring back Bobby” yet down in Tallahassee? Florida State’s defense had shown signs of major improvement, but for the second week in a row it was the Noles undoing – that and special teams. T.J. Yates threw for 439 yards and three touchdowns and Casey Barth kicked his third field goal of the game with 55 seconds left to win the game. Florida State's Dustin Hopkins missed two field goal tries in the fourth quarter, including a possible game-winner from 40 yards with seven seconds left - wide right, naturally. He's missed a 42-yard attempt with 7:51 left and the Heels won their first game on Bobby Bowden Field at Doak Campbell Stadium in forever.
MIAMI 26, MARYLAND 20 – Miami’s True freshman Stephen Morris threw for 286 yards in his first college start and hit Leonard Hankerson for a 35-yard score with 37 seconds left in the game.
CLEMSON 14, N.C. STATE 13 – Clemson’s Kyle Parker threw for 214 yards and a touchdown as Clemson overcame a bundle of miscues – two lost fumbles, and interception, a called-back touchdown and two missed short field goals.
DUKE 55, VIRGINIA 48 – Duke’s Desmond Scott ran for a 35-yard touchdown with 40 seconds remaining to help the Blue Devils defeat Virginia (again).
BOSTON COLLEGE 23, WAKE FOREST 13 – The Eagle’s Montel Harris carried 36 times for 183 yards and all three of Boston College's touchdowns. Game over.
NORTHERN HAITI HOPE FOUNDATION: After our recent trip to Haiti, we vowed to do more to help. Clean water is a critical issue for all Haitians. It's particularly problematic for those in rural areas. For $2,000 to $5,000 we can build a new well in a rural village as part of a program facilitated by the St. Barthelemy School and the Warrenton, VA Rotary. Send your donation to Wells of Health and Hope, c/o GPetty-VTA, 38 Garrett Street, Warrenton, VA 20186 and keep your eye on T.A.H. for progress reports. Thanks! CLICK ON THE PHOTO FOR MORE INFO.
