Big Ten · ACC · Pac-12
The Atlantic Coast Conference has just three ranked teams heading into Week 4 action, but two of those teams are ranked eighth or higher in the Associated Press Top 25.

This weekend's slate of games in the ACC do not present a whole lot of must-see TV, but there are interesting matchups nonetheless. I think I'll be taking in the Pittsburgh-Duke game live at Wallace Wade Stadium with my two boys, and the weather looks like it will be absolutely beautiful for the first ACC road game for the Panthers.

The best game on the schedule might actually be the Clemson-North Carolina State game Thursday night in Raleigh. The Tigers have had their issues against the Wolfpack in years past, dropping a 37-13 decision in their last visit to Carter-Finley Stadium back on Nov. 19, 2011 when they entered play as the No. 7 team in the land.

Clemson at North Carolina State (*Thu. ESPN - 7:30 p.m. ET)
As mentioned, the Tigers were treated rudely in their last visit to Raleigh. That's a rarity, however, as the Tigers are 5-1 ATS in their past six visits to Carter-Finley Stadium, and the road team is 13-3 ATS in the past 16 meetings in this series. NC State has traditionally come back strong after a bye, covering nine of their past 10 games in such situations. The Wolfpack is also 16-4-1 ATS in their past 21 home games against a team with a winning record. The total might be the most interesting play in Thursday's game. The 'over' has connected in each of Clemson's two games, while the 'under' has cashed in each of NC State's first two outings, including a 23-21 near-miss against Richmond Sept. 7. These two teams combined for 110 points in their last meetings Nov. 17, 2012, but that was when NC State had QB Mike Glennon at the controls. The quarterback play so far this season has been murky at best for the red and white.

North Carolina at Georgia Tech (ESPN, 12:00 p.m. ET)
Vad Lee led the Ramblin' Wreck to an impressive victory last weekend in his native Durham against Duke, and now he takes aim at another Triangle school. The Jackets are an impressive 2-0 ATS this season, and 8-2 ATS in their past 10 games in the month of September. Georgia Tech has also covered each of their past six ACC games. The Jackets are also the only FBS team yet to allow a sack. The Tar Heels haven't had a ton of luck in Atlanta in recent times, covering just two of their past eight trips to Bobby Dodd Stadium, and UNC has failed to cover in each of the past four meetings. In addition, Carolina is 1-6 ATS in their past seven road games, and they are just 1-9 in their past 10 league openers dating back to 2001.

Marshall at Virginia Tech (ESPNU, 12:00 p.m. ET)
It won't be easy for the Hokies, who narrowly escaped Greenville last weekend with a 15-10 road win at East Carolina. Meanwhile, Marshall looks to bounce back after a shocking 34-31 loss at Ohio. QB Rakeem Cato has been putting up video game-like numbers, and he has at least one touchdown pass in 21 straight games, which is the second longest active streak in FBS. Cato has jelled nicely with TE Gator Hoskins, and the Hokies will need to shut down that connection if they are to pull away. While a single-digit spread is rather attractive if you can get it, remember Virginia Tech is just 7-20-2 ATS in their past 29 games, and 2-9-2 ATS in their past 13 non-conference battles.

Pittsburgh at Duke (12:30 p.m. ET)
Things started out well for Duke, who hammered NC Central 45-0 in their opener. They then hit the road for Memphis, and pulled off an impressive 28-14 victory against the Tigers. However, they lost QB Anthony Boone (collarbone) to a broken collarbone, and for the Blue Devils, that is the kind of loss that cannot easily be overcome. As it is, Duke is 0-5 ATS in the past five conference games, and 1-4 ATS in their past five at Wallace Wade Stadium. Pitt hits the road for the first time in ACC play, and they are looking to improve on their 13-4 ATS mark over the past 17 games. The 'under' might also be a tempting play, cashing in eight of Pitt's past 10 road battles.

West Virginia at Maryland (ESPNU, 3:30 p.m. ET)
The Mountaineers and Terrapins are frequent combatants, and it remains to be seen if their series will continue on once Maryland moves to the Big Ten. The Mountaineers have dominanted lately, covering five of the past six meetings. The road team is also 5-2 ATS in the past seven meetings, while the favorite is 4-1 ATS in the past five. The recent trends for each side seem to favor Maryland, as West Virginia is 6-13 ATS in their past 19 games against ACC opponents, and 1-5 ATS in their past six neutral-site games. The Terps are 4-0 ATS in their past four non-conference games, 5-0 ATS in the past five overall, and 5-2 ATS in their past seven against a team with a winning record.
