Much of the talk over the last few days in college football has been the hypothetical question of whether Auburn or Missouri as a one-loss SEC Champion should jump an undefeated Ohio State in the rankings.
If the Duke Blue Devils have any hopes of slowing down the Florida State Seminoles offensive juggernaut; the Dukies have to find a way to solve the tall task of slowing down FSU receiver Kelvin Benjamin.
The Atlantic Coast Conference began the 2013 season hoping to get back into the race for the national championship and boost the conference’s overall image.
The Miami Hurricanes started out the season as hot as any team in the country at 7-0 before losing three straight. After last weekend’s victory over the Virginia Cavaliers, the Canes still have a very outside shot of getting to the Atlantic Coast Conference Championship game.
The Southeastern Conference and the Big Ten Conference have historically been the conferences that like to run the football the most. But the Atlantic Coast Conference is moving the football on the ground at the highest rate since 1996.
The 2013 sports year has been filled with oddities like the Super Bowl blackout. But perhaps no one could have forecasted a year that could see the Miami Hurricanes beat the Duke Blue Devils for the ACC basketball championship and Duke beat Miami on the football field and be on the cusp of playing for the ACC football championship.
The Florida State Seminoles may as well be named the Steamrollers as they play out there schedule. The Noles put any distractions aside on Saturday and blew out Syracuse and that could be a trend over the Noles’ final three games of the season.
The Miami Hurricanes ran out to a 7-0 record, but have crashed back to earth with two straight losses. Now, the canes are heading to North Carolina to take on a Duke team that is more than ready to spring the upset on the football field. No, seriously.
For the Florida State Seminoles, the formula for the rest of the season is simple: win, and you’re in. If the Seminoles want to play for the Bowl Championship Series national championship, all the team has to do is win its final four games and FSU will be headed to Pasadena, California to play for the title.
Miami and Virginia Tech are hungry to get back out on the playing field to get the taste of some recent losses out of their mouth. Much has been lost. All has not.
