With half the league off, it's a quiet day in the ACC, but there are still some interesting nonconference games being played. Here's a look at what's going on in the league on game day, and a few things coming up:
Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis is prepared to give UNC linebacker Bruce Carter some "special attention."
Georgia Tech is playing Gardner-Webb today, but the talk in Atlanta has already moved to Clemson.

It's never to early to start talking about the NC State/FSU game. After all, former NC State coach Chuck Amato already is, and no, he doesn't hold any grudges. Bill Parcells told him not to.
Wake Forest has to take care of injured punter/place-kicker Sam Swank, one of the best in the country. That could mean relieving him of his punting duties.
