Saturday, October 22, 2005Around the State/ACC
FSU (5-1) at Duke (1-6): No better way to get over a loss than to play Duke. It's going to get pretty ugly and it's going to get ugly quick but look for a more "equal" rep set from the FSU quarterbacks now that Drew Weatherford has a loss on his record. FSU 52-7.
FAU (1-6) at Arkansas State (3-3): A little surprising as many people (myself included) expected this game to be for at least a top spot in the Sun Belt. Arkansas State is there and should beat a fairly weak and tired Owl squad. Arkansas State 31-16.
Virginia (4-2) at North Carolina (2-3): Seems like some people aren't buying into the Cavaliers a week after their upset win over Florida State. The truth is they aren't as good a road team, but really..who is? In the end they will squeeze out a victory. Virginia 24-21
Temple (0-7) at Clemson (3-3): This is gonna hurt, but I give the kids at Temple credit. They try as hard as they can every week. I hope they get rewarded wit a win soon. Clemson 59-7.
N.C. State (2-3) at Wake Forest (2-5): The Deacons all but ended their bowl chances with a loss to Boston College last week, but they are excellent in a spoiler room. Meanwhile N.C. State must get to a bowl and probably win it to get Chuck Amato off the hot seat. Wake Forest 31-24.
