Around the ACC we go:
- Duke has plenty of areas to improve on defense, but the Blue Devils have at least been able to grab some interceptions. There were some things in the Alabama loss to be encouraged about, though.
- Will Wake Forest ditch its "lead boots" in time for Florida State?
- The Terps take another hit: Left tackle Justin Gilbert is done for the year with a torn ACL.
- Clemson's offense is missing that big-play capability.
- Hey BC fans, you guys are "about as hard as it comes, those Boston people."
- Readjust your goals, Florida State and Miami fans. Start with conference titles, not national titles.
- VMI is getting ready for an uphill battle against Virginia.
- Georgia Tech defensive end Izaan Cross was one of the ACC's players of the week, but he knows he still has a lot of work to do.
- Virginia's running backs situation remains fluid.
- The biggest difference for Virginia Tech against ECU? The offensive line.
- Miami coach Randy Shannon will try and beat his mentor and friend of 27 years.
