Boston College
Joe Micik talks about how the thrill of Boston College football is finally back. Although the Eagles lost to Clemson 24-14, for three quarters they were looking to upset the Tigers.

During the much-anticipated Clemson-FSU game this week, coach Dabo Swinney says his team is going to embrace the moment and go have some fun. However, a lot is at stake this week in what is likely the biggest game of Clemson's conference schedule.

Ken Medlin of wralsportsfan.come says that Duke is the Triangle's best chance at a bowl game. Anthony Boone looked healthy Saturday against Navy, and is ready for the season's second half after recovering from a collar bone injury.

Florida State
Clemson's defense could provide some big play opportunities for Jameis Winston and the FSU offense. Christian Jones has had a comfortable transition from a weak-side linebacker last year to a defensive end/linebacker hybrid this year.

Georgia Tech
The Yellow Jackets struggled on both sides of the ball in their loss to BYU. Robert Godhigh and Adam Gotsis were a few of Georgia Tech's bright spots during the game. 

Stefon Diggs and Deon Long are showing they can make some plays for the Maryland offense. Caleb Rowe's second start under center ended on a higher note than his first.

Coach Golden is downplaying the Miami Hurricanes' jump in the rankings but he is extremely happy to talk about how well his offensive line has been playing.

North Carolina
Eric Ebron talks about the upcoming game against Miami. UNC athletic director Bubba Cunningham has doubts about the future of the ACC with Maryland's departure.

N.C. State
The Wolfpack's rushing defense disappeared in its 24-10 loss against Syracuse. N.C. State is giving up more yards against ACC opponents and getting less itself.

Notre Dame
The Notre Dame-USC rivalry game is set to take place this week, and people are already getting excited for it. Notre Dame is on the fringe of being a Top 25 team.

Paul Chryst and Tom Savage talk about the Panthers' offensive line. Linebacker Todd Thomas is leading the improvement of the Pitt defense.

Syracuse's running game deserves some respect after piling up 300 yards on the ground for the second consecutive game. The Orange outhustled N.C. State en route to their 24-10 victory. 

John Feinstein talks about the devastating 27-26 loss the Cavaliers had against Maryland this weekend. Some believe that head coach Mike London is now on the hot seat.

Virginia Tech
The Hokies have climbed to No. 20 in the coaches' poll after their 19-9 victory over Pitt. The AP Poll gives them one spot better, with Virginia Tech landing at 19.

Wake Forest
The Demon Deacons are predicted to miss out on a bowl game in ESPN's latest ACC predictions.
