Boston College
Atlanta is preparing for another big snowstorm, but Boston College's game against Georgia Tech tonight is going to be played as scheduled. Some writers have already been discussing the ideal basketball coach for Boston College.

The Clemson Tigers fell to Notre Dame in overtime despite K.J. McDaniels putting up 30 points on his own. Dabo Swinney says his offensive line recruiting has been right on target.

While Duke's biggest game left on the schedule is a rematch with Syracuse, tonight's match up with UNC is still the biggest rival game in college basketball. Coach K says a good but not great team is heading over to Chapel Hill.

Florida State
The FSU basketball team is searching for answers after losing five of their last six games. A finger injury is slowing Jameis Winston at the plate, but not on the mound, as baseball season comes around.

Georgia Tech
Georgia Tech's pitching staff is coming into the season with many questions looming. Paul Johnson talks about this year's recruiting class and more in a Q&A with Michael Carvell.

Randy Edsall announced spring injuries and departures from the football team. It also looks like multiple players who had planned on enrolling at Maryland early aren't going to be able to do so.

Miami went with a big lineup against FSU and it paid off in a 77-73 win. Malik Rosier is an incoming two-sport athlete at Miami and is starting to face the challenges of playing both baseball and football at the collegiate level.

North Carolina
UNC is embracing a huge opportunity tonight against rival Duke. The Tar Heels have been playing consistent basketball of late, and that's saying a lot for this year's team. One of the key players will be Marcus Paige, who is a completely different player than he was the last time he went up against Duke.

N.C. State
T.J. Warren has been scoring at an insane rate all season, but he reached a career high in N.C. State's 82-67 beat down of Wake Forest. BackingthePack.com takes a look at who's going to play first and third base for this year's baseball team.

Notre Dame
Defensive back Cody Riggs is going to be visiting Notre Dame tomorrow. Riggs announced that he would be transferring from Florida several days ago to continue his academic career. Jim Miesle breaks down Notre Dame's 2014 defensive end recruits.

Pitt fans are going to have a tough time feeling optimistic for tonight's rematch against No. 1 Syracuse. Wade Freebeck's flip to Vanderbilt did a lot to hurt the Panthers' depth at quarterback.

Tonight against Pittsburgh, the Orange begin a tough stretch of games on the road to close out the season. In spite of improved recruiting recently, Syracuse's football team is still sitting near the bottom of the ACC.

The Virginia baseball team is considered the preseason No. 1 team largely because of the bats in the lineup, but there is some talent in the pitching staff, as well. The team is going to have to figure out how to deal with the high expectations of being the top team in the country.

Virginia Tech
Justin Cates wonders if this year's Virginia Tech basketball team is the worst team the program has ever had. Meanwhile, the Virginia Tech baseball team lost five starters from the batting order, and the Hokies are going to have to find new ways to replace that offense.

Wake Forest
Codi Miller-McIntyre's uptick in scoring and field goal percentage during his sophomore season is one of the highlights for Wake's midseason basketball player analysis
