Big Ten · ACC · Pac-12
The Atlantic Coast Conference will have one heavyweight battle this weekend, and then a host of other league games which might separate the lower-tier teams from those in the upper tier. We might not be as entertained as some of the other leagues, but this weekend we will learn quite a bit about the ACC from this slate of games.

It appears that the Army-Boston College game will go on as scheduled, as there had been talk that due to the government shutdown, the Black Knights would not travel from West Point to Chestnut Hill. However, it appears that problem has been averted for now. Enjoy the weekend!

Maryland at Florida State (ESPN - 12:00 p.m. ET)
The Terrapins are certainly not making it easy for their ACC brethren before departing for the Big Ten next season. Maryland is 4-0, and they have been one of the most exciting teams to watch. Maryland has actually covered six straight dating back to last season, and some might be surprised to see them as a 17-point underdog heading into Tallahassee this weekend. However, Florida State QB Jameis Winston has been impressive, and the Seminoles have covered three of their four games overall. FSU is also 5-1 ATS in their past six home games. Maryland is 4-10 ATS in the past 14 ACC games, while FSU has covered just one of their past five conference tilts. FSU has dominated the series at home, covering eight of the past 10 visits by Maryland to Doak Campbell Stadium.

North Carolina at Virginia Tech (12:30 p.m. ET)
The Tar Heels were manhandled at home by East Carolina QB Shane Carden and the Pirates offense last week in Chapel Hill. The Heels have sunk to a new low after the 55-31 shellacking at the hands of ECU. It doesn't look to get any better for the Heels with a trip to Blacksburg. North Carolina is just 1-7 ATS in their past eight road games, 1-4 ATS in their past five games overall, and 2-5 ATS in their past seven ACC contests. One thing going in North Carolina's favor is the fact the road team has covered six of the past seven meetings in this series. Be careful with the total in this game, as it is rather tricky. The total is set at 46, and the 'under' has cashed in five of the past six meetings in this series, and each of the past four in Blacksburg. However, last season, UNC powered past Virginia Tech 48-34, and Carolina hasn't shown much of a defensive effort lately. This could be another high-scoring affair, going against what the trends say.

Georgia Tech at Miami, Fl. (ESPNU, 3:30 p.m. ET)
Two of the hottest ACC teams, at least against the number, do battle in South Florida on Saturday afternoon. This one has the potential to be a very entertaining affair. The Jackets were dumped at home by a 17-10 score against Virginia Tech, but had covered their previous three games. The 'under' has cashed in three in a row for Georgia Tech. The 'over' has come in over the past two games for Miami, but they have played two bad teams in Savannah State and South Florida. Ga. Tech will be a much sterner test. Last season these teams hooked up in a 42-36 overtime thriller in Atlanta. The Jackets will look to return the favor, but are 0-4 ATS in their past four trips to Miami. One other interesting tidbit is that the Hurricanes are one of five FBS teams yet to trail in a game this season.

Clemson at Syracuse (ABC, 3:30 p.m. ET)
With Clemson, the first thing to check out is the total. This week the line is set at 65. The 'over' has connected in three of their four games, and all three of their Saturday affairs, with the 'under' coming Sept. 19 in Raleigh in a Thursday game at N.C. State. The 'over' is 3-1 for Syracuse as well, including each of the past three outings. The Tigers have covered 10 of their past 14 games, and 16 of their past 21 conference tilts. They easily knocked off Wake Forest last week with video-game-like offense, winning 56-7. The Orange figure to offer a little more resistance. Syracuse has allowed just 17 points over the past two games, but that's against FCS opponent Wagner and FBS doormat Tulane. When the Orange faced Northwestern Sept. 7 in Evanston, the defense was pummeled for 48 points. Look for more of the same from Tigers QB Tajh Boyd and the Clemson offense under the roof in Syracuse.
