Boston College
Boston College's football attendance dropped a bit this past season, but it normally follows a two-year cycle. Dan Rubin takes a look at some of the Eagles storylines to look out for this baseball season. 

Clemson took down N.C. State last night thanks to a great effort from Rod Hall, who scored 20 points. Redshirt freshman defensive back Ronald Geohaghan is going to be transferring from Clemson at the end of the spring semester.

Duke's backcourt by committee has kept teams off guard over the past eight games. Rasheed Sulaimon and Quinn Cook have split the starting duties evenly, with four games apiece. The Blue Devils took their game with UNC-Greensboro into the 12th inning Tuesday, but weren't able to complete the comeback and lost 9-8.

Florida State
Jameis Winston pitched a scoreless ninth inning with just 10 pitches against Jacksonville to complete a 12-6 victory. The FSU football team is looking to play in neutral-site games in Orlando and Atlanta in 2016 and 2018.

Georgia Tech
Despite a solid defensive effort, Georgia Tech got beat up by Duke to the tune of a 68-51 loss last night. Duke's backcourt players (in addition to Jabari Parker and Rodney Hood) were just too much for the Yellow Jackets to handle.

Maryland took down Wake Forest 71-60 last night with a 20-point effort from Nick Faust. Faust's game brought back a lot of memories from his high school days, and it was his best overall performance so far with the Terrapins.

The Hurricanes have indefinitely suspended James Kelly from the basketball team for violating team rules. This is just another obstacle Jim Larrañaga is going to have to overcome in what has been the most challenging stop of his coaching career.

North Carolina
Small contributions from players who normally go unheralded made all the difference in UNC's comeback win against FSU Monday night. Brian Barbour looks at how the UNC baseball team is shaping up, and looks ahead to this weekend's series against Xavier.

N.C. State
State's 73-56 loss to Clemson was largely due to the terrible second half the Pack had. The team shot over 50 percent during the first half and had a one-point lead after the period, but once the second half started, all of that disappeared. 

Notre Dame
Notre Dame has nine players set to work out at the NFL Combine this weekend. Jim Miesle breaks down Notre Dame's 2014 defensive back and punter recruiting.

The Panthers' 2014 basketball recruiting class could get a boost with shooting guard Kobe Eubanks, who is strongly considering Pitt. The NFL process is going to start this weekend for several former Pitt standouts.

Donna Ditota says Lonnie Jackson is one of the five things to watch for in Syracuse's matchup with Boston College tonight. Bud Poliquin wonders if Tyler Ennis's buzzer-beater is the best moment in Syracuse regular-season history.

The Cavaliers were able to slip past Virginia Tech for their 10th consecutive victory. Jerry Ratcliffe takes a look at Joe Harris, and how he delivers when it matters most.

Virginia Tech
A completely reinvented Virginia Tech team wasn't able to seal the deal against Virginia after slipping up late in the game. 

Wake Forest
The Terrapins extended Wake Forest's losing streak to six games with their 71-60 win last night. The next step for the Demon Deacons is a tough matchup against a hot North Carolina team.
