Boston College
Running back Andre Williams and one of his key blockers, Matt Patchan, earned ACC Player of the Week Honors. Williams ran for an ACC record 339 yards against N.C. State. The Eagles grabbed their first victory on the hardwood this season against Florida Atlantic-but it wasn't pretty.

The Tigers are preparing to take on a triple-option offense for the second time in as many weeks with The Citadel coming up on Saturday. Clemson players Sammy Watkins and Vic Beasley have been selected as semifinalists for national player of the year honors at their respective positions.

A young Duke basketball team showed some early-season growth in their 97-64 win against Florida Atlantic. Coach David Cutcliffe is getting a lot of recognition after his Blue Devils knocked off the Miami Hurricanes, 48-30.

Florida State
The Seminoles are one of the top football teams in the nation this year, thanks to sharp focus and natural talent. Coach Jimbo Fisher likes the way his team is preparing for their next game against Idaho in the midst of the sexual assault cloud over Jameis Winston.

Georgia Tech
The Yellow Jackets are still in the running to be Coastal Division champs, but their bowl picture is a bit unclear at the moment. This writer takes a look at the improving and undefeated Georgia Tech basketball team.

Cornerback Will Likely is continuing his impressive first season with the Terrapins, taking home ACC Co-Rookie of the Week honors after a strong game against Virginia Tech. Basketball coach Mike Turgeon is disappointed with Maryland's 1-2 start to the season.

After three straight losses, the Hurricanes still have reasons to play, with the opportunity to make a big bowl game still a possibility. The Miami basketball team had an impressive victory against Charleston last night, winning 70-54.

North Carolina
Jeff Goodman writes that the Tar Heel basketball team could be in trouble after a weak showing against Holy Cross and then a loss to Belmont, both at home. After that loss to Belmont many of the players and people watching are wondering what's next for North Carolina.

N.C. State
The Wolfpack recently landed kicking recruit Kyle Bambard and receiver Stephen Louis. 

Notre Dame
The Fighting Irish's senior day is shaping up to be a bit of a mixed bag. They will take the field against BYU with no national championship or BCS bowl game on the line.

Cornerbacks Trenton Coles and Titus Howard were the most recent players to join Pitt's growing group of injured players. Here are coach Paul Chryst's top ten quotes from his weekly press conference. He talks about the loss to UNC and the upcoming game against Syracuse.

Daryl Gross says that Florida State is as good as the USC teams of which he was part in 2003 and 2004. The Orange basketball team was able to come from behind and win a close game against St. Francis, 56-50.

Joe Harris is trying to find his rhythm early in the season. He scored in the single digits just three times all last season, but has done so twice already this year. 

Virginia Tech
Jarell Eddie put up 21 points during Virginia Tech's high-scoring victory against VMI, 105-92. Virginia Tech's running game was poor yet again during the game against Maryland this weekend.

Wake Forest
7-2, 275 pound center Isaac Haas chose to play basketball for Purdue after committing to the Demon Deacons in early September. Four Wake Forest players scored in the double-digits in a 90-83 win against Jacksonville.
