Pithy Comments

- BC is now 3-0 vs. non-conference opponents and 0-5 against ACC opponents.
- UNC is 6-1 and will likely be highly ranked going into Blacksburg in Week 9.
- Florida State falls from the ranks of the unbeaten, but gets the chance return the favor against NC State in Week 9.
- Miami re-enters the conversation in the Coastal by winning at home against Clemson. I think Miami will be strong at home this year, but have its struggles on the road.
- Georgia Tech finally wins in Hooville.
