Boston College
The game against Georgia Tech was move to tonight as the result of another Atlanta snowstorm. Road conditions made for unsafe travel to the game for important personnel and fans. Brian Favat takes a closer look at the geography of the Eagles' last 12 years of football recruiting. 

The Tigers survived a brutal 5 of 6 road game stretch, as they came out of with their ACC record sticking above .500. Dabo Swinney is extremely excited about his young running back core. The team has featured a 1000-yard rusher in each of the past 3 seasons. 

In the entire 236-game history between Duke and North Carolina, there had never been a game that had to be postponed...until last night. The rivalry matchup was announced to be pushed back to Thursday, February 20. That will put Duke in a 4-game in 8 days situation that includes a rematch with Syracuse two days after UNC. 

Florida State
The winter storm has caused Florida State to delay their opening day baseball game against Niagara to Friday night. Here's a season outlook on the team that is ranked in the preseason top 5, and features Heisman winner Jameis Winston in its bullpen. 

Georgia Tech
The Jackets' game against Boston College was pushed back to 5 p.m. tonight. The womens' game against Virginia which was originally scheduled for tonight is now rescheduled for Friday. Here's a preview of the men's game. 

Rutgers will be joining the Terps in the the move to the Big 10. The conference is expecting a seamless transition for both schools in the upcoming season. We've already seen basketball and baseball games postponed due to inclement weather; now we can add women's lacrosse to the mix. 

Christy Chirinos takes a look at a Canes baseball team ready to make a strong postseason run again this season. The team returns one of the most experienced pitching rotations in the conference. Chris Bello analyzes Coach Al Golden's football offseason. 

North Carolina
The rivalry will have to wait. Duke's team bus was unable to pick up the team in Durham Wednesday night due to a snowstorm that also caused fans heading to the game to abandon their cars miles out. The game was postponed to next Thursday and puts both teams in a scheduling situation of four games in eight days. The annual managers' game between the rivals got a little messy. 

North Carolina State
Clemson officials moved up the start time of the women's game Thursday night to the afternoon due to weather conditions. 

Notre Dame
Coach Brian Kelly will not be a happy camper if an NCAA football prosposal becomes a rule come fall. The proposal will basically put a stop to all uptempo offenses across the country. The Irish are in play for a Florida Gator graduate student transfer. 

The Panthers' amazing streak of 9 straight home wins against AP top 5 teams came to an end Wednesday night at the hands of Tyler Ennis. Talib Zanna led Pittsburgh with 16 points and 14 rebounds in the heartbreaking loss to Syracuse 58-56. 

The legend of Tyler Ennis continues to grow. The freshman sank a running 35-footer as time expired with his team down 1. The Orange remain undefeated as of now, with matchups at Virginia and Duke coming soon. 

Tony Bennett is readying his team for their ACC stretch run. The 17th ranked Cavs are currently riding an 8-game win streak heading into a matchup with Clemson on Saturday.

Virginia Tech
Even though the 2014 National Signing Day recently passed, the Hokies' 2015 recruiting outlook is already being analyzed. I'd be thinking ahead, too, if I were a Tech fan, seeing as the basketball team hasn't really brought much of anything to the court this year. They are 1-10 in ACC play. 

Wake Forest
The women's game will join the long list of games that have been forced to change their times and dates due to the snowstorm. The game will now start at 6 p.m. on Thursday night.
