Here’s your overview of scores with commentary for this week’s ACC football action...
Saturday, Sept. 26th, 2020
#24 Louisville Cardinals 20 at #21 Pittsburgh Panthers 23
Billed as the Cardinals offense versus the Panthers defense - Pitt won that deal, holding Louisville to just 223 total yards. Meanwhile, the Pitt offense was efficient, if not explosive - a phrase which will probably be used again before this season is over.
Next up for Louisville: bye
Next up for Pitt: NC State
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets 20 at Syracuse Orange 37
The Orange enjoyed dome-field advantage, the Syracuse defense picked off four Georgia Tech passes and took away a fumble for good measure, and QB Tommy DeVito threw more completions than incompletions, more touchdowns than intercepts, en route to his team’s first victory. For the Yellow Jackets, the rebuild continues.
Next up for GT: bye
Next up for Syracuse: bye
Duke Blue Devils 20 at Virginia Cavaliers 38
No Bryce Perkins (QB), no Bryce Hall (CB) - no problem for the Cavs as they blew out the Blue Devils late.
Next up for Duke: Virginia Tech
Next up for UVA: at Clemson
Texas State Bobcats 21 at Boston College Eagles 24
BC got a huge scare from Texas State. The only time the Eagles led in this game was the final score.
Next up for BC: N. Carolina
Florida State Seminoles 10 at #12 Miami Hurricanes 52
The Canes look like they might finally be back, while the Noles look like their problems are not a quick fix. Miami transfer QB D’Eriq King continues to breathe life into that Hurricane offense.
Next up for Florida State: Jacksonville State
Next up for Miami: bye
N C State Wolfpack 24 at #20 Virginia Tech Hokies 45
The Hokies were without 23 players, but the ones they had looked pretty good, starting with transfer RB Khalil Herbert who rushed for 104 yards and a touchdown in the season opener for Virginia Tech.
Next up for NC State: at Pitt
Next up for Virginia Tech: at Duke
