It's a slow day for some teams, as there were byes this weekend for a few football teams. Others had some big wins and cause for excitement. One team had another poor performance and lost to a Sun Belt team.

Boston College
Despite the loss to the USC Trojans this weekend, the Boston Globe writes that the Eagles are still showing progress under first year head coach Steve Addazio.

Although Clemson did not play this weekend, the Tigers moved up to No. 4 in the Coaches Poll and remained at No. 3 in the AP Poll. Here's a breakdown on how to beat N.C. State on Thursday.

Duke had a rough game against Georgia Tech on Saturday, and the numbers back that up. Head coach David Cutcliffe continues to serve as a mentor for both Peyton and Eli Manning.

Florida State
The Seminoles fell behind to Nevada 7-3 in the second quarter, but bounced back in a major way en route to a 62-7 romp over the Wolfpack.

Georgia Tech
The Yellow Jackets impressed beyond the typical box score on Saturday against Duke.

Randy Edsall won his homecoming against Connecticut 32-21, as the Terps moved to 3-0 for the first time since 2001. The Terps did receive some bad news, as starting corner back Dexter McDougle will miss the rest of the year with a shoudler injury sustained on his second interception of the game.

Miami was off this past weekend, and that gave the Hurricanes time to catch their breath and get some rest, especially the reserves, who will figure prominently in the next two weeks of play.

North Carolina
Tip-off times and some roster updates were announced for the basketball team over the weekend.

N.C. State
The Pack opens up as a 13-point underdog on Thursday night against Clemson.

The Panthers routed New Mexico over the weekend 49-27, as WR Tyler Boyd had a huge game. On the hardcourt, ESPN slams Pittsburgh's non-conference schedule.

The Orange got its first win as a member of the ACC in a 54-0 thrashing of Wagner. Ground is broken on a new "necessary" indoor practice facility.

The Cavaliers are on track for a record ticket revenue for football this season.

Virginia Tech
The Hokies can thank their defense for a narrow escape over the East Carolina Pirates on Saturday. This outstanding film review reinforces this notion, as well.

Wake Forest
The Deacons had a bad loss to UL-Monroe on Saturday, and Coach Grobe points the finger at himself for the "lethargic" offense.
