VT vs. UNC
UM vs. Clemson

Lots of ramifications. Of course, Clemson should win. UNC vs VT always plays out with a lot of emotion. They’ve developed a rivalry. VT’s got the best of it, but the Heels are playing for bigger things.

Those are both interesting games and should be good. They may determine a lot in the conference.

What the hell happened in the GT v Lou game?  When I was picking up dinner GT just tied it 21-21.  GT goes on to win by 19.  Long receptions of 41, 41, and 33 yards.  Wow, well done.  Maybe GT is turning into a real team pretty quickly.

I had forgotten it was on so I was shocked to see the score of the GT game.

Seems like VT and UNC both forgot how to play defense, a lot of points today.

Hope we take care of Miami tonight.

UNC tackled very poorly today. They did score enough to win, though. Over 600 yards of offense. Two RB’s over 100 yards. UNC was missing 4 defensive starters to injury. One was the biggest, and kind of fastest DL guy who clogs A gap. Hopefully they will be back for next week at FSU, but really ND and Miami are the games left.

ETN is a BEAST.  The guy has just gotten better this year.  So strong, his balance and yards after contact is so good.  Looking pretty good against Miami, except special teams….yikes.

ETN looks great.

The 61 yard FG attempt was foolish and Dabo knows it.  Much safe to hailmary there. 

Clemson dominated in every way.  The biggest thing I saw was our DL and LB’s had amazing push at the line tonight.  King was uncomfortable ALL NIGHT.  Hell they only had one good offensive play all night and it was because a blatant missed holding call.  https://youtu.be/1L1A0zegZT0

I still wish I saw some better WR play but the TE’s and ETN are making up for it.

GT has shown improvement in spurts this year. Their QB shows some promise.

UNC came out rolling and let VT climb back in it. They should be favored in the rest of their games other than ND and possibly Miami.

Miami was never really in that game. They had no answer for anything the offense threw at them - certainly not Etienne. I was happy to see the defense show up and be as tough as they were. I was worried about that part. They had a good game plan and attacked all night.
