Boston College
BC is preparing for UNC's two quarterbacks, Bryn Renner and Marquise Williams, and the different styles each has. Steve Addazio hopes his team is rested and ready for the second half of the season

Chad Morris said there's plenty of blame to go around on the offense after their abysmal showing against FSU.  

This columinst for the N&O thinks the picture of the Duke players with the guns at West Point shouldn't have happened. Andre Dawkins is back for Duke, and other notes about Duke basketball. Duke's 22-point comeback against Virginia showed a lot of maturity

Florida State
The Seminoles might be the best team in the country. They're definitely good, but does everyone finally believe that? Their No. 2 place in the BCS standings isn't strong by any means, but there's still a lot of football to be played. Bobby Bowden will return to FSU for the first time since he retired this weekend for the NCSU game. Jimbo Fisher talked to the media, previewed N.C. State and discussed Bobby Bowden's return. 

Georgia Tech
Here are four takeaways from the GT-Syracuse game. Linebacker Anthony Harrell is likely out for the year. Could Georgia Tech be headed for a better finish than Georgia?

With Deon Long and Stefon Diggs both out for the year, the Washington Post looks at who will step up to replace them.  

The NCAA finally got back to Miami, and the Hurricanes will not have any bowl ban, but will lose nine scholarship over the next three years. Star running back Duke Johnson has been cleared to play after he was knocked out of the UNC game. Al Golden wants his team to focus on football and not get distracted by the NCAA, writes Manny Navarro. Ladarius Gunter was named ACC Specialist of the Week for his crazy touchdown off a blocked field goal against UNC. Former Cane Randy Phillips detailed his relationship with Nevin Shapiro. 

North Carolina
Other than the Duke games, here are the five UNC basketball games to catch this season. It's time to circle the wagons for Larry Fedora and the football team. After yet another loss, UNC is regrouping to figure out where to go from here. 

N.C. State
The Wolfpack aren't expecting any sort of letdown from Florida State this week, writes Joe Giglio. One thing that will help against FSU (though it may not ultimately make any difference to the outcome) is that Brandon Mitchell will be back

Notre Dame
Looking ahead, a preview of Air Force's offense. The football team spent some time helping the homeless in a community service project. 

Pitt is trying to be versatile and find a multitude of ways to win ball games. Here are Paul Chryst's best quotes about Navy

Jerami Grant is back practicing after injuring his hand. Here are some of the positives and negatives from Syracuse's loss to Georgia Tech. Is there any carry over after having lost by more than 40 points? Jim Boeheim is tired of discussing his eventual retirement

Duke's huge comeback against the Cavaliers was in large part due to Duke's fourth-down success, writes Doug Doughty. Mike London addressed his job security, saying he thinks he's the right guy for the job. Doughty also writes that London said he knows how to win

Virginia Tech
Coming off the bye, the Hokies are looking forward to taking on Duke. The Hokies are happy to be back and playing football again after a short break. The first BCS standings are high on VT and other ACC teams, writes David Teel. 

Wake Forest
Al Golden said he's worried about Wake Forest (this week's opponent) rather than FSU, Miami's opponent after Wake.
