Florida State Seminoles vs. Duke Blue Devils Preview and Prediction

By Mike Ferguson, 1 week 2 days ago
Two ACC teams in desperate need of a win will square off this Saturday in Durham as Florida State pays its first visit to Duke since 2011. At 1-3, the Seminoles are off to their worst start since 1976 — Bobby Bowden's first year as head coach.

North Carolina Tar Heels Midseason Review and Second Half Preview

By Mark Ross, 1 week 2 days ago
To say this season has been a struggle for North Carolina would be an understatement. The Tar Heels are 1-5 at the halfway point with the lone victory coming against a team from Conference USA.   To be fair, Larry Fedora can point some of the blame on injuries, as he’s already lost more than a dozen players for the season.

Boston College Eagles vs. Louisville Cardinals Preview and Prediction

By Adam Kurkjian, 1 week 3 days ago
It is circle the wagons time for both the Boston College Eagles and Louisville Cardinals, albeit on entirely different scales.   After a 23-10 loss to Virginia Tech last Friday night, the Eagles have fallen to 2-4 overall and 0-3 in the ACC.

By Jon Kinne, 1 week 3 days ago
At 3-0 in the ACC, with wins over Florida State and most recently Louisville, NC State has solidified itself as an Atlantic Division contender. The Wolfpack play the ultimate league heavyweight on Nov. 4, but that is still a ways away and there are a couple of other tests before Clemson comes marching into town.   Next up is a trip to Pittsburgh to face the 2-4 Panthers....

By Bryan Fischer, 1 week 5 days ago

A further four teams in the top 25 suffered a loss and a handful of Heisman hopes took a serious hit as well. Even the top two teams,...
