It's a good day to be in Tallahassee, but if you're not, there's plenty going on elsewhere. Check it out:
- There has been a lot of focus on the two divisional matchups today, but Boston College is playing a critical under-the-radar game today. A loss today might result in an "identity crisis."
- UNC playmaker Brandon Tate always has some extra motivation -- his older bro.
- Virginia Tech playmaker Victor "Macho" Harris, though, is motivated today by Brandon Tate.
- Today's games bring a rare spotlight to teams from the state of North Carolina.
- Remember those GTGs? They're gaining popularity with their song "Triple Option." As for the actual offense, Mississippi State coach Sylvester Croom is quite familiar with it.
- Lansford Watson's transition to tight end has given the Terps an upgrade at the position. Will they get an upgrade in the kicking game, though? Obi Egekeze hasn't made a field goal yet.
- Despite the effects of Hurricane Ike, the Miami Hurricanes are expecting the best from the Aggies.
- This whole Peter Lalich saga is quite messy. Each story seems to leave more questions hanging out there.
- Here's a look at Clemson and South Carolina's history against in-state schools. South Carolina State's president predicted an upset today over the Tigers.
