Syracuse Orange vs. Wake Forest Demon Deacons Preview and Prediction

By Adam Kurkjian, 2 months 4 days ago
Is it a new day for Wake Forest football?   Well, for now, we at least know it's better, as head coach Dave Clawson is off to his best start (4-1) with the program, the lone loss coming last week to NC State. The Wolfpack perennially own that rivalry, but the same can be said for the Demon Deacons' opponent this week, Syracuse.   Since entering the ACC in 2013, the Orange...

Virginia Tech Hokies vs. North Carolina Tar Heels Preview and Prediction

By Jon Kinne, 2 months 4 days ago
Perhaps Florida State isn’t what everyone thought the Seminoles would be. But going to Tallahassee and coming away with a victory is obviously cause for celebration. For head coach Larry Fedora and his North Carolina Tar Heels, it was a signature win that catapulted UNC to No. 17 in the AP Poll.   The Heels, though, have another important battle this week; a game that is perhaps...

Florida State Seminoles vs. Miami Hurricanes Preview and Prediction

By Steven Lassan, 2 months 4 days ago
Florida State is off to a disappointing 3-2 start this year, but the Seminoles still have plenty to play for, including a trip to Miami on Saturday against the rival Hurricanes. Under coach Jimbo Fisher’s watch, Florida State has owned Miami. Fisher is 6-0 against the Hurricanes and has won the last three matchups in Miami.

By Bryan Fischer, 2 months 4 days ago
While we don’t have three games pitting top-10 teams against one another like last week and several games (including LSU vs. Florida) have already been postponed due to Hurricane Matthew, the upcoming college football slate is still loaded with some quality contests. As good as the matchups between the names on the front of the jerseys are this week though, the one-on-one...

5 Greatest Florida State vs. Miami College Football Games of All-Time

By Aaron Tallent, 2 months 5 days ago
Until the 1980s, no one outside of the Sunshine State cared about the Florida State/Miami game. Now, eight national titles later, it is one of the most anticipated matchups of the year. It’s also become a conference game since Miami joined the ACC in 2004.   The series is pretty even, with Miami holding a slim 31-29 edge. In determining the best games of the series, many of...

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets vs. Pittsburgh Panthers Preview and Prediction

By Jon Kinne, 2 months 5 days ago
Last season, Georgia Tech began the season by winning its first two games. But after losing to Notre Dame, the wheels fell off and a big reason why was the tendency to turn the ball over.   This year, the Yellow Jackets started out 3-0, but have dropped the last two. In their most recent loss — to Miami last Saturday — two Hurricane fumble returns for touchdowns mere seconds...

Notre Dame Fighting Irish vs. NC State Wolfpack Preview and Prediction

By Jon Kinne, 2 months 5 days ago
After a 33-16 victory over previously unbeaten Wake Forest last Saturday, NC State is now 3-1. The Week 2 loss to East Carolina is in the past and the Wolfpack have built some momentum.   That’s a good thing because the Wolfpack open a very difficult three-game stretch by hosting Notre Dame this Saturday. Road trips to Clemson and Louisville will follow in the succeeding weeks, so...

Clemson Tigers vs. Boston College Eagles Preview and Prediction

By Adam Kurkjian, 2 months 5 days ago
Maybe playing at home under the lights on a Friday night against a national power will ignite the type of spark Boston College desperately needs at the moment.   As Clemson comes to Chestnut Hill on the heels of a thrilling win over Louisville last Saturday night that — at this early stage — appears to have major implications for the ACC Atlantic Division title and a...
