THE STORIES

Somehow, improbably, the Hokies roared to life in an epic Blacksburg comeback

Duke was in position for a shocker. Then everything unraveled.

Miami lost its first ACC game, and its quarterback in the process

The Seminoles responded to a devastating loss with the “Air Jimbo” offense.

Boston College found itself on the wrong end of a rebound, and got steamrolled by Florida State.

Michael Rocco sparked the Cavs in relief, even if it was too late.

THE QUOTABLES

“It was panic. I’ve never heard it that silent but I knew we were going to come together and come through.” — Virginia Tech safety Detrick Bonner.

“We took a big blow again, quickly. That was tough.” – Duke Coach David Cutcliffe.

“I’m not interested in sending a message; I’m interested in winning a football game.” – Florida State Coach Jimbo Fisher.

“I think their psyche was they got annoyed that they got a little conservative last week and they weren’t about to do that. They were going to attack and they were in an attack mode right from the beginning.” Boston College Coach Frank Spaziani.
