ACC Report - Week 5
Editor's Note: Don't miss out on college football winners in Week 5 from Joe Williams. Click to win!

Big Ten · ACC · Pac-12
The Atlantic Coast Conference has two teams in the top eight of The Associated Press Top 25 poll, and three teams in the Top 15. Barring any unlikely setbacks, that should continue into next week, as all three teams face inferior opponents. The only other ACC unbeaten team, Maryland, will rest up and enjoy a bye.

If you're looking for pure enjoyment, and no action, then this weekend's slate of ACC games isn't for you. With the exception of the UVA-Pitt game, all favorites in this weekend's ACC slate are favored by at least 12 or more points. In Thursday's action, Virginia Tech hit the road and tripped up Georgia Tech by a 17-10 score, handing the Ramblin' Wreck its first straight-up loss, conference loss and ATS setback. Since a beatdown from Alabama, the Hokies are getting increasingly stronger, winning four straight games, and covering for the first time this season.

If you're looking for entertainment, it might come in the way of the Troy-Duke game. The Trojans have rolled up 34 or more points in three of the past four games, and Duke scored 55 points in last week's loss at home to Pitt. The 'over' has cashed in 10 of the past 11 for Troy. Enjoy the weekend!

Miami, Fl. at South Florida (ESPNU - 12:00 p.m. ET)
The Hurricanes blow into Raymond James Stadium looking to keep their record unblemished, while the Bulls look to finally get into the win column. These teams have a common opponent, Florida Atlantic. While Miami tuned up the Owls by a 34-6 score Aug. 30, USF was taken down by FAU at home by a 28-10 score Sept. 14. A much better USF team was steamrolled 40-9 by the Canes Nov. 17, 2012, so covering a 19-point spread at home might be a tall order. The Hurricanes are 8-1 ATS over their past nine games, they're 8-2 ATS in their past 10 road contests, and they are 4-1 ATS in their past five against a team with a losing record. The Bulls are just 7-19-1 ATS in their past 27 home games, and 7-18-1 ATS in their past 26 non-conference contests. QB Stephen Morris (leg), who left the blowout win against Savannah State, is expected to play in this one.

East Carolina at North Carolina (12:30 p.m. ET)
The little cousin heads west looking for a little respect from the injured, but still dangerous, older relative in Chapel Hill. The Tar Heels are licking their wounds after a stunning loss in Atlanta last weekend. UNC appeared to have the game in command, but frittered away a 20-7 lead in the rain, allowing 21 unanswered points to Georgia Tech. The Pirates are 3-9 ATS in their past 12 games against Atlantic Coast Conference opponents, although they covered against Virginia Tech earlier this season in Greenville. The Pirates are 1-5 ATS in their past six non-conference games, and 1-4 ATS in their past five road games overall. Meanwhile, the Tar Heels are a perfect 6-0 ATS in their past six against Conference USA foes, and 8-2 ATS in their past 10 games at Kenan Stadium.

Virginia at Pittsburgh (12:30 p.m. ET)
Pittsburgh QB Tom Savage has really come into his own over the past couple of games, especially last week in Durham. The Panthers rolled up a 58-55 win, lighting up the scoreboard like a pinball game. Unfortunately for bettors laying three and a hook, a bad taste was left in mouths everywhere after the Panthers frittered away a 58-41 lead midway through the fourth quarter. It isn't surprising to see Pitt fail to cover, as they've only done so once in three tries. Virginia isn't much better, going 2-7 ATS in their past nine ACC games, and 8-20 ATS in their past 28 games against teams with a winning record. The 'over' has cashed in each of Pittsburgh's three games this season, and is 2-1 in UVA's three contests.

Wake Forest at Clemson (ESPNU, 3:30 p.m. ET)
The Demon Deacons are a four-touchdown dog in Death Valley, and by all accounts they might not come close to covering that number. Wake is 3-13 ATS in their past 16 road games against a team with a winning home record, 1-6 ATS in their past seven games overall, and 0-7 ATS in their past seven games against a team with a winning record. Wake's only cover this season in four tries came in a 23-11 snoozefest at West Point last weekend. Clemson failed to cover on the road last week in Raleigh against NC State, but they are 9-4 ATS in their past 13 games, and 8-2 ATS in their past 10 ACC battles. The talent difference is stark, but watch out for Wake WR Michael Campanaro. If the Deacs are to have any chance to stay in the game, Campanaro and QB Riley Skinner need to bring their 'A' games.

Florida State at Boston College (ABC/ESPN2, 3:30 p.m. ET)
The Jameis Winston show heads to the northeast, as the Top 10 Seminoles look to stay perfect. The Seminoles have covered each of their past four, but they are just 1-6 ATS in their past seven road games, and 0-4 ATS in their past four road games against a team with a winning home record. However, that lone road cover came Sept. 2 at Pittsburgh in a 41-13 rout. Don't put too much stock into past year's trends, and focus on what has been going on this season. The 'Noles are 3-0 SU, ATS and the 'over' has cashed in each of their three tilts. BC can get it done offensively, as QB Chase Rettig is adequate, WR Alex Amidon is a reliable receiver, and RB Andre Williams can be a grinder However, the defense has been the key for BC, helping the 'under' cash in each of their three battles.
