More from StateFansNation on the "well deserved national attention" that Wake Forest is getting. Small private school, second worst record in Division I football history, finding a way to get it done year in and year out. It doesn't always show in their record, but it shows in their effort on the field. This year, that effort is being rewarded. Well done, Deacs. Keep it coming and shock the nation by running your record first to 5-0, then to 6-0! Get over there!!!
Tech punishes key duo: "After arrests, Ellis, Morgan suspended for Ga. Tech game. A fracas early Sunday on a downtown Blacksburg street will cost the 11th-ranked Virginia Tech football team the services of two of its better players Saturday when 24th-ranked Georgia Tech visits Lane Stadium." Advantage Georgia Tech!

Taking responsibility, some Eagles play blame game for loss:"When it came to wearing the goat's horns after Boston College's first loss of the season, a 17-15 setback against Atlantic Coast Conference foe North Carolina State Saturday night, there was no shortage of candidates in the Eagles' locker room."
Tigers adjust to avoid being screened:"ESPN picks up Wake Forest-Clemson game; Spiller wins award. In the past two weeks, Clemson’s defense has prepared ad nauseam for screen passes. All the Tigers have seen were smoke screens."
Watkins returns to normalcy: "Clemson Linebacker’s family returns to New Orleans as he returns to first string."
Ball's injury one more FSU hurdle:"Another season-ending injury - this one to linebacker Marcus Ball - is yet another hurdle for defensive coordinator Mickey Andrews to overcome. And Jeff Bowden, as he watched film from the Rice game, realized plenty of challenges remain for his offense."
Noles ready for time off:" Bobby Bowden usually prefers that his team ride the momentum from a thorough victory directly into another game. But after an emotional first month, which included a big win over Miami and a dramatic loss to Clemson, Bowden will gladly take a bye week to prepare for a Thursday night game at North Carolina State."
