ACC needs to thank BC and Georgia Tech
By ESPN.com staff

Yes, they were very winnable games, but at least Boston College scored enough offense to make up for what NC State didn't do and what Wake Forest currently isn't doing.
Boston College -- the team that entered this season with ZERO collegiate snaps at quarterback -- is trouncing Northeastern 47-0. No, it's not an ACC win, but it shows the Eagles are capable of putting up some points, and it should give them a much-needed boost of confidence. Finally, some good news in Chestnut Hill and a reason to celebrate.
And Georgia Tech took care of Jacksonville State with a 37-17 win.
If only those two teams could have shared some of their points with the Wolfpack and a now-struggling Wake Forest team, the ACC would be looking pretty good.
