THI Newsstand: September 22

ACC weekend preview: Sept 21 - ACCSports.com
ACC football games don't get any bigger than this. At least not in the last five years. Fourth-ranked Florida State hosts No. 10 Clemson Saturday night in a nationally-televised matchup, marking the first time two ACC teams ranked in the top 10 have faced one another since 2007 (Matt Ryan and No. 2 Boston College beat No. 8 Virginia Tech, 14-10, that year). Is Florida State really good enough to be a national title contender? Or is Clemson still the best team in the ACC? This game should give us the answers.

Saturday Viewers Guide: Week 4 - CBSSports.com
I respect you too much to lie to you. As far as weekly matchups have been this season, this week is probably the thinnest of the bunch. Particularly in the morning and afternoon sessions.

Why Southern Miss never had that chance, Fedora didn't want to say.

ECU schedules impacted by Notre Dame, ACC policy decision - Charlotte Observer
It's much too early to predict what kind of impact Notre Dame's pending five-game schedules will have on East Carolina's quest to maintain regular series dates with ACC opponents, but it's safe to assume it will get more difficult. Much of how that issue unfolds will hinge on the ACC's decision about switching from a planned nine-game league schedule to eight.

ECU needs wins for UNC rivalry to take hold - Wilmington Star News
It's definitely a rivalry. Both teams agree on that much. It's just that the definition of the word is just a little bit different in Chapel Hill then it is in Greenville when it comes to the football series between North Carolina and East Carolina.
