What we need is for John Swofford to get Regis Philbin to host a new Atlantic Coast Conference game show: Who Wants to Win the ACC Coastal? The funny thing is, the answers we might have given a week or two ago might be completely different now.
As for the Atlantic, we all know who will win that, but we don’t have to like it I suppose.
Let’s begin with our game and snake through ACC football Week 9.
ACC Football Week 9: Fighting for Survival
Our Recap: Eagles Hold Off Deacs for 23-17 Win
At halftime, it looked as if Boston College was going to deal an historically-crushing loss to Wake Forest, who had six yards of offense at halftime.
By the time it was over, the Eagles were lucky to have won.
From Boston College completely outplaying Wake in the first half to getting outplayed in the second, the Eagles never do anything easily. Yet, as long as they get their sixth win (preferably next week), it matters not.
ACC Football Week 9: Lane Stadium Goes Silent-er
It was a Thursday night in Blacksburg, Virginia, and with the eyes of the nation upon them, the Gobblers laid a big, fat egg.
Virginia Tech had a chance to get themselves back near the top of the Coastal, but instead, they went minus-3 in turnovers and ultimately got rocked by the visiting Miami Hurricanes.
In a very optimistic sign for the Eagles, who visit Blacksburg next week, Miami rushed for 364 yards.
