If only the Cavaliers could play N.C. State every week.

Duke had no answer for Clemson’s potent offense. None.

All those mistakes killed the Wolfpack against Virginia.

Georgia Tech still couldn’t muster a four-quarter effort, but at least left College Park with a resounding win.

Turnovers were too much to overcome for the Eagles against Wake Forest.



“I mean, I beat him so many times. . . . I’m not trying to be cocky about it. I’m just telling you the facts. But the guy came up to me. He’s punching me in my face while I’m brushing him, but the ball’s all the way [downfield]. He’s talking trash to me. He’s losing. I win. You don’t win. You’re just wasting time.” – Virginia defensive end Eli Harold.

“They kept scoring and we couldn’t really stop them. It was just tough.” – Duke cornerback Lee Butler.

“It sure didn’t work out for us today.” – N.C. State coach Tom O’Brien.
