Virginia Tech's trip to Pittsburgh is a sneaky important game in the ACC Coastal. The Hokies are 3-1 in conference play and currently have a 44 percent chance to win the division, according to our Football Power Index. A win in Pittsburgh would increase Virginia Tech's chances to win the Coastal to about 68 percent, but a loss would put the North Carolina in the driver's seat.

Jesus "Bobo" Wilson, Florida State's second leading receiver, is out for Saturday's game against Clemson with a foot injury. Receiver has been a trouble spot for FSU so losing the senior hurts. It's a blow to the Seminoles' special teams, too, as Wilson is fourth nationally in punt return average.

Wisconsin coach Paul Chryst discusses gearing up for another big game against Nebraska, facing friend Mike Riley and how Natrell Jamerson could be used if he plays this week. No. 11 Wisconsin plays host to No. 7 Nebraska at 7 p.m. ET Saturday in a huge Big Ten West showdown.

Just how bad is FSU at finishing drives in the first half? Against the Power 5, there isn't a Power 5 team better at avoiding three-and-out drives, but they're 54th in percentage of drives ending in touchdowns. They're 28th in percentage of possible yards gained, too, which means they're moving the ball effectively until reaching opponent territory in the first two quarters of games. Clemson's defense is second in touchdowns per drive in the first half.

Ever wondered if penalties correlate to success? Not necessarily. ECU and UConn are tied for 4th fewest (28 flags) in FBS and have a combined one conference win. Ohio State, Utah, and UNC are all in the Top 25 and rank 103rd or worse in total penalties.

Intriguing offensive disparity in Saturday's ECU-UConn game (12ET, ESPNews): UConn's Noel Thomas and ECU's Zay Jones, respectively, have the two largest gaps between them and their next closest teammate when it comes to catches. Thomas is 60 ahead of his next teammate, and Jones' FBS-leading 95, is 59 ahead of his next closest teammate.

Seemingly good news for Nebraska on wide receiver Jordan Westerkamp, who has missed the last two games with a back injury. Offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf said after today's practice, "I think that he's looking good running around, and I think they're going to make sure and check him out fully before they clear him for 100 percent contact, but he looks good moving around." Nebraska visits Wisconsin on Saturday.

Penn State RB Saquon Barkley said his team is trying to "create its own juice" at practice this week. The Nittany Lions aren't pumping crowd noise in this time -- and it's probably no coincidence that's because they're headed to Purdue, whose crowd will be about one-third the size of Saturday's White Out. PSU's started out slow on the road so far this season, so it's trying to change things up.

With Wednesday's practice in the books, Ohio State QB J.T. Barrett and position coach Tim Beck talk some shop. Is this the week the Buckeyes break out again with their passing attack?
