ACC Weekend Round Up: Another UNC Dream Season Down The Tubes
Wake Forest 28 UNC 27
I know Gio Bernard was out, but you can't lose your ACC opener, to Wake Forest, when you have Virginia Tech and Georgia Tech in your division. Maybe the Demon Deacons were prepping for North Carolina all Fall practice as they racked up just 293 yards against Liberty a week ago. Jim Grobe is now 13-2 at home against his four in state rivals. No wonder Wake fans love him so much. This marks the 10th time in 12 years the Tar Heels have lost their ACC opener. And some thought they were going to win their division!?
Georgia Tech 59 Presbyterian 3
"Six players ran for touchdowns as Georgia Tech (1-1) had 712 total yards, the second-highest total in school history, including 469 yards rushing. The Yellow Jackets had a school-record 768 yards in a 66-24 rout of Kansas in 2011." - theACC.com. Though the Blue Hose did score for the first time in four meetings with five seconds remaining in the game.
" Penn State (0-2) forced four turnovers in Virginia territory, continually giving its offense opportunities, but it converted those chances into just three points.- theACC.com" Some would call this Karma.
NC State 10 UConn 7
"Of particular concern only two games into the schedule is the offensive line, an ongoing program problem - ACC Now" I continue to be baffled why Tom O'Brien is having so much trouble on the offensive line in Raleigh when he looked so good at it in Chesnut Hill.
Boston College 34 Maine 3
Yes, this was a football game, not a hockey game.
Clemson 52 Ball State 27
While not up yet, Shakin the Southland usually does a film breakdown of the Tigers and its a must read for film geeks.
Stanford 50 Duke 13
Is San Jose State really that much better than Duke?
Maryland 36 Temple 27
The Terps are 2-0. They were also 2-0 last season.
The Hokies beat the Austin Peay Governors Saturday afternoon in Blacksburg 42-7 behind a good defensive performance and a lackluster performance on the offensive side of the ball (Déjà vu anyone?). - Gobbler Country
