Who's next? Virginia Tech. But what's next? That's a berth in the College Football Playoff if No. 3 Clemson, a double-digit favorite, wins the ACC tonight.

The health of Saquon Barkley's ankle is a story to watch for Penn State. Coach James Franklin said Friday that Barkley looked great in practice, and the star running back seemed to be moving well in early warmups. Wisconsin ranks third in the FBS in rushing defense.

One year ago, Pitt running back James Conner was diagnosed with cancer. On Saturday, he was in Orlando before the ACC championship game with coach Pat Narduzzi to pick up the Brian Piccolo Award, given to the league's most courageous player. How'd he do it? "God," Conner said.

Isaiah Ford is the only 1,000-yard receiver in Virginia Tech history, and he'll have back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons with 51 yards tonight. The Hokies might need more than 51 from him to pull off the upset, however, as they'll have to make a few a big plays in the passing game. That's not easy against Clemson's Cordrea Tankersley.

So far UCLA and Baylor have been two of the best teams this season. Hard to argue against their early resumes. Both are a good watch and will be entertaining to track the next four months. Will be curious to see how high they will ultimately get on seed line. Neither may ultimately win their respective league but will have strong SOS.
