    As the ACC heads into the final week of the regular season, it does so with a 27-17 record against its nonconference opponents this year. Don't forget that 13 of those wins came against FCS opponents, but the good news is that the ACC didn't suffer a...

    Heather Dinich

    A few quick thoughts on the the first half of the day: Maryland 7, William & Mary 6: Earlier this week I wrote that Maryland's depth was so thin it was a scholarship or two from being an FCS team. Well, it played like one on Saturday. This win...

    Heather Dinich

    There is danger lurking on the Week 1 ACC schedule. No, it's not Northwestern, or suddenly serious Syracuse. It's big dogs. James Madison. William & Mary. Richmond. And -- gasp -- Appalachian State. All three of those programs have done ...
