ACC Games vs. FCS Foes a Win-Win For Both Schools (Associated Press)

It’s FCS weekend in the ACC, and some of the matchups could get ugly. Bethune-Cookman of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference plays at No. 8 Florida State while fellow MEAC member Savannah State is at No. 16 Miami. VMI of the Big South travels to Charlottesville to play Virginia. The games are unlikely to be competitive, but will likely be a win-win for both schools…

Culture Change Tested Again Tonight (

From the moment he took over going on five years ago, Dabo Swinney has spoken repeatedly about changing Clemson’s culture. Improve the accountability. Improve togetherness. Improve the overall belief that winning was expected, rather than just waiting for something bad to happen — which was too often the result of Tommy Bowden’s decade-long tenure…

Georgia Tech Offense Displaying New Option (ESPN’s ACC Blog)

Vad Lee is under no delusions. He knows his coach, he knows what Paul Johnson preaches, and he knows the four touchdown passes he threw against Duke last week were an anomaly, not a cultural shift in Georgia Tech’s offensive philosophy.

Are the Tigers ready to make a big-play breakthrough? They’ll be hoping so when they square off against N.C. State tonight at Carter-Finley Stadium in the ACC opener for both teams. Clemson’s big-strike game hasn’t been absent, by any means, in the first two games of the season…

Point/Counterpoint: Will BC Football Make a Bowl Game (The Heights)

Although the Boston College football team has already matched its win total from last season by posting a 2-1 record, it is still not prudent to consider the Eagles a lock for a postseason bowl just yet. In fact, based on the team’s play so far, and especially against USC last week, it is most prudent to predict that Eagles will miss out on one of the 70 FBS bowls once again…

Duke’s Offense Tries to Do the Work for Quarterback Brandon Connette (Charlotte Observer)

After the players had showered and reporters had departed from Duke’s football facilities after the 38-14 loss to Georgia Tech last Saturday, Duke coach David Cutcliffe called his quarterback, Brandon Connette. “He didn’t feel good about his third-down play,” Cutcliffe said, referencing Duke’s 3-of-14 conversion rate. “I said, ‘Brandon, none of us feel good about our third-down play…
