It's almost game day!

  • Whoever would have thought the biggest problem with Paul Johnson's offense would be the lack of a big-play wide receiver?

  • It would also help if the Jackets could win the battle up front.

  • Maryland makes the stops when it counts -- on fourth down and in the red zone.

  • Clemson wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins gives quarterback Kyle Parker some margin for error when he throws.

  • NC State kicker Josh Czajkowski has a pregame routine he always sticks to. Some might say he's even a little superstitious.

  • Virginia sophomore tight end Paul Freedman has learned how to score -- and celebrate it.

  • Good news, bad news for the Canes. Good news? Seantrel Henderson has been as good as advertised. Bad news? He has to be, because Orlando Franklin is hurt.

  • It was a long process, but UNC cornerback Kendric Burney has finally been cleared to play.

  • Thursday night's game looms large for the Atlantic Division standings.

  • Mike London's academic requirement didn't end when the season started -- just ask the three players who were benched this past weekend.
