THE STORIES

The Seminoles needed a 17-point fourth quarter to finally pull away.

History was made in Durham last night. The Blue Devils are going bowling.

Despite five fumbles and a missed field goal, Florida State still won easily.

North Carolina State avoided another road letdown with a crazy win in College Park.

Virginia Tech’s offense grinded to a halt in the second half against Clemson

Nothing like facing the Eagles to end Georgia Tech’s skid.

Boston College is off to its worst start since 1989.

THE QUOTABLES

“It wasn’t that we couldn’t score points. It’s just that we didn’t score points.” – Virginia Tech QB Logan Thomas.

“Everybody was kind of on the same page. We’ll see when we grade the film, but you didn’t see the busts.” – Georgia Tech Coach Paul Johnson.

“We have to develop our guys and recruit some more and keep working, and don’t make any excuses. They’re a better team right now.” – Miami Coach Al Golden.

“When I realized I still had it, I just wanted to get to the sideline and celebrate with my team. I knew there was still time on the clock, so I didn’t want to celebrate too much.” – Duke’s Jamison Crowder.
