I may be totally alone on this one, but I really thought Georgia Tech was a better team than what they showed Saturday. Sure, that Notre Dame win keeps becoming less and less of an accomplishment as the losses rack up in South Bend, but didn't the Jackets look like they had a good team? And to lose to Virginia? Who'd have picked that one? Not me! How about the Canes? After being walked all over by Oklahoma just 2 weeks ago, Miami put it back together and knocked off Texas A&M, who, though they weren't a great team, was still a pretty good Top 25 team. I don't expect the U to roll over the rest of their opponents, but it's nice to see that certain ACC teams still have a little bite.

The loss by Georgia Tech and Miami's win, plus Wake Forest catching their stride against Maryland brought about a 5 & 3 record last week, bringing my total to 28 of 38..

Duke & Miami = Miami. In Miami...yeah, it could be ugly for the Blue Devils.

North Carolina @ VT = Virginia Tech

Massachusetts @ Boston College = BC. Boston College struggled a bit against Army last week, but don't expect the 4-0 Minutemen to notch another win. The Eagles will roll in Chestnut Hill.

Clemson @ GT = Clemson. If you'd have asked me about this last week, I probably would've gone with Tech. A lot can change with a loss to Virginia.

Louisville @ NC State = Louisville. Sure they have no defense. But NC State doesn't have enough offense to matter. Don't expect another Syracuse.

Maryland @ Rutgers = Rutgers

Bama @ FSU = FSU. Regardless of the outcome, this should really be a good game. National TV time and 2 teams that look to be about even.

Pittsburg @ Virginia = Virginia
