Boston College
Coach Steve Addazio said that wide receiver Harrison Jackson is still in the hospital after taking a huge hit to the chest during the New Mexico State game. Jackson's is just one of the many injuries that have been occurring lately for the Eagles.

Chad Morris says "only the strong survive" in the month of November. While the Yellow Jackets will be coming off a short rest, Clemson has had an entire week to prepare for the stout Georgia Tech defense this Thursday night.

The Blue Devils and Jabari Parker will face off against Andrew Wiggins and Kansas tonight at 10 p.m. DeVon Edwards has been an unlikely hero for the Duke football team, after being ranked the 12th-best basketball player in the state of Georgia his senior year.

Florida State
Backup quarterback Jacob Coker injured his meniscus Saturday against Wake Forest and is out indefinitely. He will be having surgery on the knee today. Chet Fussman writes that the Seminoles have been given a boost in the odds for a BCS Championship game because they play in a "not-so-strong ACC."

Georgia Tech
This writer looks back at the recent matchups between the Yellow Jackets and the Clemson Tigers. Paul Johnson has been pleased with his team's efforts of late, as Georgia Tech approaches its biggest test of the season.

Maryland fans have been pretty excited about the school's move to the Big Ten next season, and the school has already seen increased season ticket sales for football. 

The Hurricanes are trying to repair their running game. After back-to-back ACC losses, coach Al Golden said he isn't going to make any major changes to the Miami depth chart.

North Carolina
The Tar Heels have turned their poor defensive back play from earlier in the season into a strength of late. A fourth person involved in the UNC football scandal is expected to appear in court on Wednesday at 2 p.m.

N.C. State
The road game at Cincinnati is going to be a big challenge for Mark Gottfried and the N.C. State basketball team. The Pack are going to rely heavily on forward T.J. Warren.

Notre Dame
This writer looks at the alignment of the Irish on defense to tries to figure out what their problems have been. Notre Dame lost their BCS hopes over the weekend and now have to regroup and take a look at their new bowl game possibilities.

The Panther basketball team shouldn't expect to coast to an easy win against Fresno State tonight. Pitt's upset against Notre Dame could be all they need to finish the season strong.

An odds-maker explains why Syracuse is going into a game against Florida State as 38.5 point underdogs. Scott Shafer says he is hopeful that Prince-Tyson Gulley and Durell Eskridge will be back for that game. 

The Cavaliers are preparing for a big in-state rivalry game with No. 14 VCU tonight. The coaches of both teams are helping to put the game and Virginia basketball on a national stage.

Virginia Tech
Mark Giannotto takes a look at five things-including more Logan Thomas talk-after Virginia Tech's win against Miami. Going into the Maryland game, the offense could be the team's strength, while a banged-up secondary could actually be a question mark for the team for once.

Wake Forest
Wake Forest recently took ownership of their basketball arena, and are going to be honoring the namesake of the building tonight. The Demon Deacons are preparing to go up against one of the nation's fastest-paced teams, the VMI Keydets.
