Boston College
The Eagles rounded out their 2014 football recruiting class with a pair of defensive commits on Sunday. Two-star defensive tackle Noa Merritt and three-star safety Tre Tarpley both announced their decisions on Twitter.

The streak is still alive unfortunately for the Tigers. Clemson suffered an 80-61 defeat at the hands of the Tar Heels, who extended their string of consecutive home wins against Clemson to 57. 

Jabari Parker will have a very important decision at the end of the season: to go pro, or stay for another year at Duke. However, many forget that another choice can come into play. Is a Mormon mission another destination for Parker?

Florida State
Jacob Coker will finish his career at the University of Alabama, not Florida State. The backup to Jameis Winston will transfer to the Tide after the spring semester. He will be eligible to play in 2014. 

Georgia Tech
Daniel Miller's career-high 21 points was not enough as the Yellow Jackets fell to N.C. State on Sunday. Chris Bolden's 30-foot attempt at the buzzer of overtime bounced off the rim. 

The Terps received two 2014 commits over the weekend, picking up cornerback Daniel Ezeagwu out of Stafford, Va., and linebacker Nnamdi Egbuaba out of Baltimore, Md. Both are currently unrrated by recruiting services.  

Former quarterback Stephen Morris had a poor showing at the Senior Bowl, which should lower his already declined draft stock. The 2014 offensive line will hope to showcase their early chemistry in the upcoming season. 

North Carolina
James Michael McAdoo's 22 points fueled an easy victory over Clemson on Sunday night. The win pushed the consecutive home winning streak against the Tigers to 57. Marcus Paige added 15 points for the Heels. 

N.C. State
ACC's leading scorer, T.J. Warren hit the game-winning runner with 6.2 seconds left in overtime, as the Pack escapes Georgia Tech at home, 80-78. Warren scored 20 points total in a game where he felt dissapointed with the overall effort, but pleased with the result. 

Notre Dame
The Irish lost a four-star linebacker in Richard Yeargin III, but were quickly able to right the 2014 recruiting ship with a committment from three-star defensive tackle, Pete Mokwuah. 

The Panthers will have a tall task on their hands when Coach K and Duke come to town on Monday night. The players and fans seem to be pretty excited about competing against the Blue Devils.

Being undefeated at this point of the season is hard. Apparently dealing with the pressures and weight of being perfect is far tougher. 

Here's an interesting recruiting story. The Cavaliers picked up a pair of football recruits this weekend, and one of them has only been playing football for six months. 

Virginia Tech
The Hokies' offense has been atrocious at times. It showed this weekend, as the offense was only able to muster 45 points against a solid Virginia squad. Luckily for the Hokies, their next game is against ACC bottom-feeder, Boston College. 

Wake Forest
The Deacons recieved a huge 2014 football commit this weekend, as defensive tackle, Isiah "Zeek" Rodney pledged to the program after his official visit. Rodney is a top 450 player in the nation and three-star recruit according to 247sports.
