ACC Game of the Week 2008

Game of the week rules: looking for the most intriguing (not always the most important) game, home conference games only, every team must appear at least once.

Saturday, August 30
Alabama vs. Clemson (Atlanta)
Time for Tommy’s Tigers to start strong…or stumble out of the gate.
Saturday, September 6
Northwestern at Duke
Two teams looking for the right to say they’re the worst BCS program.
Saturday, September 13
California at Maryland
The Bears make a rare trip east for a match up with the Terps. This will be a more competitive game than the USC at UVA game last week.
Saturday, September 20

Virginia Tech at North Carolina
Tech starts strong but the Tar Heels might be able to Butch up and stop that trend.
Saturday, September 27
South Florida at NC State
A rematch of the 2005 Tire Bowl. Has Tom O’Brien’s team turned the corner? Can USF be a consistent team?
Saturday, October 4

Florida State at Miami
Two teams looking to assert their relevance in 2008 and beyond.

Thursday, October 9
Clemson at Wake Forest
Time to check in on Tommy. Is this another feather in the cap or another trip up?
Saturday, October 18
Virginia Tech at Boston College
Can this be anywhere as entertaining as last year?
Saturday, October 25

Virginia at Georgia Tech
A battle for the middle. Neither team is a contender but you just want to become bowl eligible while avoiding being the last ACC school to visit the Smurf Turf in late December.
Saturday, November 1
Duke at Wake Forest
But basketball season is still a month away.
Thursday, November 6
Maryland at Virginia Tech
The game is not as interesting as the pattern that ESPN has set up. Tech plays on Thursday November 1 and 8. Then Miami plays on November 8 and 15.

Saturday, November 8
Notre Dame at Boston College
Irish on Irish action…Brilliant.

Thursday, November 13
Virginia Tech at Miami
The hand off game.
Saturday, November 15
Duke at Clemson
North Carolina at Maryland
Wake Forest at NC State
Basketball is getting closer.

Thursday, November 20
Miami at Georgia Tech
The big ACC Thursday night finish? Paul Johnson did a great job at Navy but it is doubtful his first season at GT will be smooth sailing.
Saturday, November 22

Clemson at Virginia
Tommy watch #3
Saturday, November 29

South Carolina at Clemson
Florida at Florida State
Vanderbilt at Wake Forest
Time to test the ACC against the SEC, “Are we a power conference yet?” Also Georgia Tech at Georgia.
