2008 ACC Football Predictions: Week 3

Week 3 in the ACC
I think UNC will pick up a big non-conference win over Ray Rice-less Rutgers. Two conference games are on the slate and both appear on paper to be mismatches with GT traveling to Blacksburg and NC State traveling to Clemson. I think Duke will beat Navy. Last year's game came down to the final seconds and this year the Midshipmen don't have Paul Johnson. He'll be in Blacksburg that Saturday. If Duke does start out 3-0, the Blue Devils and David Cutcliffe will be media darlings.

Bye Weeks
Boston College, Miami and Wake Forest

Sept. 11 and Game of the Week

Ok so, VT over GT is not that unrealistic..but putting BC over GT? C'mon man. Our athletic talent alone should help us win that one.
