Around the ACC

Posted by ESPN.com's Heather Dinich

So there were three noon starts in the ACC today, and at halftime in each of those three games, the ACC is trailing. Congrats to Duke, though, for scoring the lone touchdown so far. Duke trails Army on the road, 10-7, Wake is struggling at home with Stanford, 14-3, and UNC is in a defensive game and trailing Connecticut, 3-0. UNC is really missing starting center Lowell Dyer and offensive guard Jonathan Cooper. The Heels have minus-5 yards rushing in the first half, and no doubt not having those guys up front has something to do with it, but so does UConn's defense.
