Former Duke coach Ted Roof - who didn't exactly set the world on fire while he was there - returns as the defensive coordinator for Georgia Tech.  

Florida State

Georgia Tech

How much longer will the Notre Dame-Purdue rivalry keep up? It seems like every week a different Notre Dame rivalry is about to end because of scheduling and their ACC ties.

Virginia Tech
The Hokies are planning to catch up with their ACC and national peers with an indoor facility. Freshman Kalvin Cline has been good for the offensive line thus far.
