ACC quarterbacks had a monster Saturday. Here's how they stacked up compared to the rest of the country...

The ACC ends the day with a perfect 8-0 record in nonconference games, including the most nonconference road wins in any week in league history (five). A top 5 showdown awaits next week between Louisville and Clemson -- yet another huge spotlight ready to shine on the league.

Matt Fortuna ESPN Staff Writer 

Duke coach David Cutcliffe said DeVon Edwards' knee injury is likely a season-ending ligament tear, but confirmation will come tomorrow. Cutcliffe adds that Edwards and QB Thomas Sirk, both fifth-year seniors who have injuries, are two of the best people -- not football players -- but people he's ever been around in his life.

Andrea Adelson ESPN Staff Writer 

The last time the ACC posted this many nonconference wins in one weekend was Week 2 in 2014. The best part for the league this time around? Only Boston College won over an FCS team and two victories (Duke over Notre Dame and Wake Forest over Indiana) came against Power 5 teams on the road.

Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly says personnel changes are coming, but he's pleased with defensive coaching today: "Coaching had nothing to do with the outcome today."

David M. Hale ESPN Staff Writer 

Duke, Wake Forest, Syracuse and Virginia were all underdogs by a combined 36.5 points. They went 4-0 with a combined 29-point margin of victory. Good day for the ACC, which is 7-0 in non-conference play, pending Louisville's trip to Marshall tonight.

"Duke gang, baby!" The Blue Devils, 21-point underdogs, head to their locker room pumped after a 38-35 win at Notre Dame.

Matt Fortuna ESPN Staff Writer 

New Duke DL coach Ben Albert deserves plenty of credit this season, and today. The Blue Devils recorded their 15th sack of the year and pressured DeShone Kizer into a pick on back to back plays. Albert coached a great d-line at Boston College last season, and now the Blue Devils are in position to take the lead late.

Matt Fortuna ESPN Staff Writer 

Duke came to win, but the Blue Devils are now 0-2 on 4th downs after getting stuffed on a 4th and 1 run at the ND 19. The Blue Devils have struggled in the kicking game, but you wonder if they would've been better served passing it or running a bootleg with Daniel Jones. Notre Dame now gets the ball looking to break a 28-28 tie.

Matt Fortuna ESPN Staff Writer 

The boo birds are out at Notre Dame Stadium at halftime, and why wouldn't they be? The Irish have been sloppy in all three phases so far, allowing redshirt freshman QB Daniel Jones to go 13 of 15 for 147 yards and 2 TDs in leading Duke to a 28-21 lead. The Irish have missed a field goal, given away a fumble and allowed a kick return TD. Additionally, Duke is without its best player in DeVon Edwards (leg). But the Blue Devils have bounced back from an early 14-0 hole, and they'll also get back safety Deondre Singleton, who had to sit the first half because of targeting last week.

Matt Fortuna ESPN Staff Writer 

Duke DB DeVon Edwards exited Saturday's game with a left knee injury after getting hurt while returning a kickoff and won't return. Edwards' left leg appeared to buckle as he returned Notre Dame's first kickoff 21 yards. The redshirt senior captain has earned numerous All-ACC and All-America mentions, as he has 6 career kickoff return touchdowns, one shy of the ACC record. Edwards also has 2 career interception returns for touchdowns.
