It's Labor Day, and Pitt is about to introduce the ACC to the wonder that is pierogies.
- Florida State and Pittsburgh kick things off tonight. The Miami Herald offers five things to watch for the Seminoles. The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review says it should be a packed house at Heinz Field for tonight's game.
- While Tajh Boyd led Clemson to a second consecutive win over a top-10 SEC foe -- something no school had ever done there's more magic in store for the Tigers, writes Pete Iacobelli.
- C.J. Brown was the story after Maryland's dominant win, but the Terps' defense didn't look too bad either, says the Baltimore Sun.
- Dave Doeren's debut came with a predictably frustrating asterisk, but it was a refreshing change for NC State nevertheless, writes the News & Observer.
- There weren't many positives for the Virginia Tech offense, but the Richmond Times-Dispatch says Trey Edmunds still managed to impress.
- Syracuse's offense struggled, too, but they might have found a star in cornerback Brandon Reddish, writes The Post-Standard.
- Jim Grobe usually prefers the veterans, but he got some excellent work from his freshmen in Wake Forest's opener, writes the Winston-Salem Journal.
- The AJC tries to find four takeaways from a Georgia Tech game that probably didn't tell us too much about the state of the Yellow Jackets.
- The teams in the Triangle all still face some big questions after Week 1, writes the News & Observer.
- We knew Stephen Morris and Duke Johnson would be good, but the Sun-Sentinel says the Miami pass rush really stepped up in Week 1.
- The defense was stout, but David Watford didn't look great for Virginia in Saturday's win, writes the Times-Dispatch. The Virginia D should celebrate, but the party won't last long, given who's up next.
- UNC is going to need to make a few big adjustments moving forward after getting thumped by South Carolina.
