ACC Nation Football Picks

Bye weeks are not much better than a hairball coughed up by a cat, at least for fans. The limited number of games the past few weeks has been about as disturbing as watching the aforementioned cat at work. Pick up some malt flavored salve and things will be all better.

We double the number of games this week. It’s back to the never-never land of Thursday and Friday night college football action for ACC fans. Then on Saturday we return to a full day of football beginning at noon and ending somewhere close to the witching hour.

The lead extends for Jim after going 4-0 this past week. After failing to go with Virginia against Miami he reversed course in their game with Duke while Will and Xayveon went all in with the Blue Devils.

Are there differences of opinion in this week’s picks? Without a doubt.

Let’s take a look at where the guys have been in order to know where they’re going –

Those Wildcards

Is there the possibility that teams could stumble this week? It seems to be the trend among college football teams at the moment. Keep an eye on these games –

  • Georgia Tech @ Virginia Tech – Will the Hokies D stop the option?
  • Miami @ Boston College – Who scores the most points?
  • North Carolina @ Virginia – Tar Heels are on the rise. Is this a trap game for the Cavaliers?
  • Duke @ Pitt – Sing ‘Anticipation’ and envision Heinz ketchup slowly pouring. It’s stuck now….
  • NC State @ Syracuse – Tough rebound game for the Wolfpack. For that matter Cuse too.

You can thank us for putting that song in your head for the rest of the week later. The Blue Devils will need to be on their toes as Pitt always becomes a threat as the season progresses. Why can’t they do that at the beginning, middle and end as well?

Who are you picking this week?
