Six games Saturday, and the most interesting to us is Miami's trip to Clemson.

Clemson is on a roll and one more ranked scalp would suit the Tigers just fine.  It'll be a defensive war and worth paying attention to.

The featured game will be State at UNC, but it probably won't be very good, given State's current woes. You can never rule out a rivalry game upset - a la Virginia Tech's stunning win over Virginia - but it's hard to see this time.

Of course last year State did a number on UNC in Chapel Hill and UNC hasn't forgotten that.

Wake continues to knock on the door and a win over Syracuse would be useful. The Deacs will need a better defensive effort.

Georgia Tech is not dead yet and needs to win the winnable games. Losing to the Hokies would be really damaging.

BC might have an upset or two in them this year but not many. We'd expect Pitt to win.

On Sunday Virginia goes to Florida State. For the Seminoles, like State, BC, Syracuse, Wake Forest and Georgia Tech, this weekend is critical. Another loss will make life very difficult indeed.
