With half the league off, it's a quiet day in the ACC, but there are still some interesting nonconference games being played. Here's a look at what's going on in the league on game day, and a few things coming up:
- Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis is prepared to give UNC linebacker Bruce Carter some "special attention."
- In order for UCF to be considered a "trap game," Miami would first have to be on a roll, no? To reverse their misfortune, the Canes first have to fix their D.
- Which Virginia team will show up today against East Carolina? Skip Holtz is wondering the same thing about his team, who are no longer feared as the BCS busters.
- Georgia Tech is playing Gardner-Webb today, but the talk in Atlanta has already moved to Clemson.
- It's never to early to start talking about the NC State/FSU game. After all, former NC State coach Chuck Amato already is, and no, he doesn't hold any grudges. Bill Parcells told him not to.
- Wake Forest has to take care of injured punter/place-kicker Sam Swank, one of the best in the country. That could mean relieving him of his punting duties.
