In league news, the ACC signed a deal to keep the football title game in Charlotte through 2019. Also, Commissioner Swofford had nothing to add to the Jim Boeheim outburst at Duke - "just move on."

Boston College
Believe it or not, Steve Donahue's team can finish as high as seventh in the ACC standings with four games left. It's a reach, but it is possibe. A.J. Black takes a look at the Eagles' offensive depth chart for not only next year, but also the three after that.  

The Tigers have made quite the statement this season. After being picked to finish 14th in the league, Brad Brownell has his team guaranteed to finish in the top half of the conference. Clemson will look for its first three-game winning streak this season when they take on Wake Forest Tuesday night. 

Jabari Parker won ACC freshman of the week for the ninth time this year. There seems to be a belief that Duke gets more foul calls at home. Well, it's true. However, 11 out of the 15 ACC teams also get more foul calls at home. People just don't like Duke. 

Florida State
Jameis Winston and the FSU baseball team will take on the New York Yankees in the Yankees' first Spring Training game Tuesday. Both sides may be a little starstuck. In football, the Noles will need a couple of players to really improve during spring practices for them to have a chance at repeating. 

Georgia Tech
Ken Suguira takes a look back at the Yellow Jackets' weekend performance. No.25 Georgia Tech Women's Tennis took down 22nd-ranked Notre Dame on Monday. 

The Terps deflated a 12-point deficit to one with 47 seconds left against the Cuse Monday night, but ended up losing 57-55. Maryland didn't shoot well at all, but Seth Allen's game-high 22 points kept the team in it to the end.  

The Canes baseball team will take on the Miami Marlins this week in the Marlins' first three exhibition games. The basketball team will look to take the role of "trap game" when they take on Virginia Wednesday. 

North Carolina
Marcus Paige took home ACC player of the week Honors after averaging 15.3 points over the last three games. The Heels are confident with their current win streak, but they are hungry for more. In the NBA, alum Raymond Felton was arrested in NYC on gun possession charges.

N.C. State
Joe Giglio takes a look at the Wolfpack's chances at a bubble slot in the NCAA Tournament. Looking closer to the ACC Tournament, the Pack doesn't have a shot at a top-four seed, but it can definitely improve its current position. 

Notre Dame
A group of Irish football players will be looking to make an impact during Notre Dame's spring practices. In the process, the team will be looking for a breakout star in their running backs corp. 

It wasn't long ago when the Panthers were a Top 25 team. Now they must start winning now to avoid becoming a bubble team for the NCAA Tournament. They have a favorable three-game schedule to close out the season and need all wins to stay in the tournament discussion. 

The Orange held off a late comeback from Maryland Monday night, taking the game 57-55. Freshman Tyler Ennis had a team-high 20 points in the win. Syracuse avoided a three-game losing streak after battling Duke in what is the newest and best rivalry. 

The Cavaliers are sitting on top of the ACC with a 14-1 record. Some would say it's been only possible because of a very favorable schedule. UVa moved up to 12th in the nation this week in the polls. 

Virginia Tech
Coming off a seven-point loss to N.C. State on Saturday, the Hokies will try to pull the upset in Cameron on Tuesday against Duke. No need to say that the Devils will present no mercy for the hobbling team. 

Wake Forest
The Demon Deacons will try to snap their seven-game losing streak at home against Clemson Tuesday night. Senior RB Orville Reynolds looks to play a big part in Wake Forest's 2014 campaign.
