Next up for Clemson: Pitt
Next up for Florida State: Virginia
Next up for Wake: BYE
Next up for Duke: at Georgia Tech
Finally, a game that was actually played. Well, one team played the second half, at least. The first half was close, but the Panthers dominated the second half. The Hokies were unable to stop the passing of Kenny Picket, and the Panthers defense stopped the Virginia Tech offense on all three of the Hokies fourth down attempts to seal the victory.
Next up for Pitt: at Clemson
Next up for Virginia Tech: BYE
Abilene Christian 15 at Virginia Cavaliers 55
It was an FCS oponent, so we shouldn’t read too much into the Cavaliers win other than it was a nice tune-up game.
Next up for Virginia: at Florida State
#21 Liberty Flames 14 at NC State Wolfpack 15
After beating Virginia Tech by a point earlier this season, the Flames fell for the first time at the hands of the Wolfpack by the same margin. The NC State defense shut down the Liberty offense, holding the Flames to 2.8 yards per rushing attempt and quarterback Malik Willis to a QBR of just 34.5 (13 of 32 passing, 2 touchdowns, 3 interceptions).
Next up for NC State: at Syracuse
