    HUGE win for Clemson over Florida State today 35-30. Also GaTech over Carolina in a shootout in Atlanta, 35-28.

    Duke (YES DUKE) had a non-con win over Tulane, 48-27

    VaTech won at Marshall, 30-10

    BC over UMass, 45-17.

    On the downside for the ACC, Miami (24-28 @ home to Kansas State), Virgina (24-30 @ home to Southern Miss) both had tough non-con losses.

    On the embarassing side, Maryland lost 38-7 at home to Temple and on Thursday night N.C. State went to Cincinnati and got thumped by the Bearcats 44-14.

    Next week will see 3 conference matchups headed by the BIG GAME at Blacksburg with Clemson bringing their (1-0,4-0) undefeated recorded to try and take down the undefeated Hokies. My money's on VaTech....

    Also my Dukies try to put together a 3rd straight victory with a non-conference game on the road at Florida International....

    Today's Games in ACC Featured 3 Conference Matchups and 5 Non-Conference matchups that saw the league go 5-0 out of conference - although the competition was dubious at best.

    First the League games.

    Game of the week happened in Blacksburg where the battle of unbeatens went to the road team. Clemson solidified themselves as the ACC favorite by dominating the Hokies on the road 23-3 to raise their record to 5-0 and prepare themselves for their first Top 10 ranking in years.

    Not to be outdone, the Ramblin' Wreck moved to 5-0 with a conference road win in Raleigh over the struggling Wolfpack, 45-35.

    In the final conference matchup of the day, Wake stayed unbeaten in the ACC with a 3rd conference road win of the day at Chestnut Hill over Boston College, 27-19.

    In nonconference play, two teams posted victories over non D1 opponents (Miami 45-14 over Bethune-Cookman and Maryland 28-3 over Towson).

    Virginia staved off an embarrassing loss at home by beating Idaho in OT 21-20.

    My Dukies made it 3 in a row with an exciting 31-27 road win over a good Florida International team.

    Finally, Carolina went on the road to knock off in-state rival ECU 35-20.

    Florida State took the week off to lick their wounds after dropping their last two games.

    Current Standings are:

    Atlantic Division:

    1.) Clemson (2-0,5-0)
    2.) Wake Forest (2-0,3-1)
    3.) Maryland (1-0,2-2)
    4.) Florida State (0-1,2-2)
    5.) N.C. State (0-2,2-3)
    6.) Boston College (0-2,1-4)

    Coastal Division:

    1.) Georgia Tech (2-0,5-0)
    2.) Duke (1-0,3-2)
    3.) North Carolina (1-1,4-1)
    4.) Virginia Tech (0-1,4-1)
    5.) Virginia (0-1,3-2)
    6.) Miami (0-1,2-2)

    Next weeks games as follows:

    There are 4 Conference games including Miami @ VaTech, Florida State @ Wake, BC @ Clemson and Maryland @ GaTech.

    Out of Conference, Carolina will host Louisville and N.C. State hosts Central Michigan.

    Duke and UVA will take the week off.

    Duke needs a week off to heal from so many injuries. The funny thing about us Duke fans is that we expect too much in Basketball and nothing at all in football. They really haven't had a victory over a quality team but it sure is sweat to see them holding a winning record regardless. The schedule gets very tough after this so they may have a tough time winning much more from here.

    Another interesting day in ACC Football....

    First for the 4 Conference Games:

    Clemson, Georgia Tech and Wake Forest continued to establish themselves as the league leaders.

    The biggest surprise was Wake taking down Florida State at home, 35-30. Clemson rolled Boston College 36-14 in Death Valley and Georgia Tech held off Maryland at home in a surprising close contest, 21-16.

    In the final conference game, VaTech held on for a crazy home win over Miami, 38-35.

    In the 2 non-con games, Carolina and N.C. State posted two more victories for the conference. UNC beat Louisville 14-7 in Chapel Hill and State took down Central Michigan 38-24 in Raleigh.

    New Conference Standings are as follows:

    Atlantic Conference:

    1.)Clemson (3-0,6-0)
    2.) Wake Forest (3-0,4-1)
    3.) Maryland (1-1,2-3)
    4.) N.C. State (0-2,3-3)
    5.) Florida State (0-2,2-3)
    6.) Boston College (0-3,1-5)

    Coastal Conference:

    1.) Georgia Tech (3-0,6-0)
    2.) Duke (1-0,3-2)
    3.) North Carolina (1-1,5-1)
    Virginia Tech (1-1,5-1)
    5.) Virginia (0-1,3-2)
    6.) Miami (0-2,2-3)

    Next week will see 5 conference games take place.

    My Dukies will try and show they're for real this year when the host Florida State.

    Miami will seek their first ACC win as the stay on the road and travel to Chapel Hill to face Carolina.

    Georgia Tech will take their undefeated record into Charlottsville to face UVa.

    Wake will look to continue their surprising run as they host VaTech.

    Finally, Clemson will take their undefeated record to Maryland.

    Boston College and N.C. State will have the week off.

    GO DEVILS!!!

    Full slate of ACC Games today saw Clemson continue to establish their dominance in the league, State with their first conference win at UVa and my Dukies lose a tough one at home after a good comback.

    Finals were:

    Clemson 59, Tar Holes 38; Wake 24, Dukies 23; VaTech 30, BC 14; FSU 41, Maryland 16; N.C. State 28, UVa 14; Miami 24 GaTech 7.

    Biggest shocker to me was Tech laying another egg on the road and losing to "The U" by a bundle.

    Current Standings in the ACC as follows:

    Atlantic Division:

    1.) Clemson (5-0,8-0)
    2.) Wake Forest (4-1,5-2)
    3.) Florida State (2-2,4-3)
    4.) N.C. State (1-2,4-3)
    5.) Maryland (1-3,2-5)
    6.) Boston College (0-4,1-6)

    Coastal Division:

    1.) Virginia Tech (3-1,7-1)
    2.) Georgia Tech (3-2,6-2)
    3.) Miami (2-2,4-3)
    4.) Virginia (1-2,4-3)
    5.) Duke (1-2,3-4)
    6.) North Carolina (1-3,5-3)

    Next week brings another full slate of games including a Thursday Night battle in Miami between the Hurricanes and the Wahoos.

    On Saturday, my Dukies host VaTech in a game that could get ugly. Also N.C. State travels to Florida State (the Wolfpack almost always give the Seminoles fits), BC travels to Maryland looking for their first conference win, Wake travels to Chapel Hill to take on UNC and Clemson heads to Atlanta to try and stay unbeaten against a Tech team that has lost their footing and will be looking to salvage what was a promising season. I look for GaTech to spring the upset but I'm hoping I'm wrong. If Clemson continues to impress, they give the ACC it's first legitimate shot at playing in the BCS title game.

    Clemson won't win in Columbia on November 26th so it's a moot point.
