Sneak Peek at Week 6

Posted by ESPN.com's Heather Dinich

Game of the Week

Duke at Georgia Tech, noon -- That's right, it's in Georgia, not Florida. This is the Blue Devils' first road game of the season and a matchup of two playbook-savvy coaches quickly turning their programs around in their first seasons. It will have implications in how the Coastal Division shakes out. See you in Atlanta.

Best subplot

Boston College at NC State, noon -- Ah, the unofficial O'Brien Bowl. Boston College coach Jeff Jagodzinski said the media "made more of that last year than it really was," but make no mistake: there are still some coaches on the Wolfpack's staff who were unhappy with the way things ended in Chestnut Hill. If Russell Wilson plays, don't count the Pack out.

Tired story

Florida State at Miami, 3:30 p.m. -- The Seminoles are turning into a run-oriented team, but will face the best rushing defense in the league, as the Hurricanes are holding opponents to 65 yards on the ground. The Seminoles are right behind them, allowing 67.2 Look for this to be a low-scoring, defensive game.

Best nonconference game

Connecticut at North Carolina, 7 p.m. -- The Tar Heels fared well in their first Big East matchup, but this ain't Rutgers. Both teams are similar in that they had new quarterbacks play surprisingly well in their debuts last week, and both are coming off come-from-behind wins.

Feel free to cut the grass or whatever else it is you do on Saturdays

Western Kentucky at Virginia Tech, 1:30 p.m. -- The 2-3 Hilltoppers, coming off a 41-3 throttling by Kentucky, will be overmatched and undermanned in Lane Stadium. The Hokies should come out with a 5-1 record midway through the season. Not bad.

Maryland at Virginia, 7 p.m. -- Ralph Friedgen is concerned this could be a trap game for the Terps, and he has every reason to worry about it considering it's still the same team that lost to Middle Tennessee.

OFF: Wake Forest, Clemson
