Boston College
With no big news coming from the hardwood or field, we turn our attention to Boston College's true pride and glory in sports. The Eagles' hockey team, ranked number one in the nation, defeated a tough Northwestern squad to capture their fifth consecutive "Beanpot".

The Tigers will look to bounce back from a loss against Syracuse on the road against Notre Dame tonight. The game will mark the first-ever meeting between the two schools. Ryan Lownes takes a look at Tajh Boyd, and his prospects as an NFL QB. 

David Cutcliffe officially announced that former WR coach, Scottie Montgomery, will become Duke's new offensive coordinator. Coach K is disapointed with the new college basketball rules, as well as the overall promotion of the ACC. 

Florida State
The Seminoles fell to in-state rival Miami 77-73 at home on Monday night. The team has lost five of their last six. In football news, the Seminoles are ready to defend their national championship, and rank at the top of a way-too-early Top 25. 

Georgia Tech
Joey Weaver takes a look at a couple of prospects who signed their letters of intent on National Signing Day. KeShun Freeman and Tre Jackson each hope to make an impact on the defensive side of the ball next year.  

In the Terps' last visit to John Paul Jones Arena as a member of the ACC, they fell to a red-hot Virginia team 61-53.  The loss puts the team at .500 in the league, and that record doesn't look like it will improve soon, with a visit to Durham coming later this week against a just-as-hot Duke team. 

In a victory that Jim Larranaga called their most complete to date, the Canes defeated rival Florida State in Tallahassee 77-73. Donovan Kirk scored a team-high 16 points in the win.

North Carolina
The Women's basketball team got the rivalry games started, posting an 89-78 win over the Blue Devils in Durham on Monday night. Doug Brodess shares his ideas on how a Duke upset can be possible for the Heels come Wednesday.

North Carolina State
The Wolfpack take the court tonight against Wake ForestThe Pack will hope to climb over the .500 wall in the ACC, and begin to strive for consistency for their head coach. 

Notre Dame
The Irish will look to avoid losing three in a row when Clemson comes to town for the first time. Freshman guard Steve Vasturia has made a great impact on the starting lineup since he was inserted.

Looking ahead to Wednesday is easy. The Panthers will be bringing their former Big East rivalry with Syracuse into the ACC.  The Pitt football team has three players preparing for the NFL's upcoming combine. 

The Orange take on Pittsburgh Wednesday night, and they may be doing it without big-time reserve Baye Moussa Keita. While Keita isn't an offensive force, he impacts the game with his defensive athleticism. Orange fans will be the first to tell you that. 

Tony Bennett's squad is on fire. The team won it's 20th game of the season and eighth straight, as they sent Maryland off to the Big Ten with a sour taste in their mouths. Senior Joe Harris scored a game-high 19 points as the Cavs went on to win 61-53. 

Virginia Tech
The football team will hope to not miss a beat as former Texas offensive line coach Stacy Searels takes over. Meanwhile, they're already building for 2015. DB DuWayne Johnson committed to Frank Beamer on Monday night. 

Wake Forest
The Deacons hope to stop the bleeding as they travel to Raleigh to take on the Wolfpack. Travis McKie will not only be facing a tough Pack team, he will also be facing his godfather on Tuesday night.
