If you would like some sarcasm: The ACC had a pretty good showing this past weekend.

Though they have started out 2-0, Boston College and head coach Frank Spaziani know “[t]hings are going to get heated” over the next few weeks following their bye.

With the ACC playing like dirt on Saturday, Clemson has the opportunity to bring the conference moral back up with a tilt against No. 16 Auburn coming up. The Tigers are expecting two defensive starters to come back, too.

Duke and Wake Forest had a Big 12-esque showdown, throwing up some pretty ridiculous numbers.

Florida State quarterback Christian Ponder on the Seminoles’ loss to Oklahoma: “It’s a learning experience, and you have to move on.”
