-- The road can be a scary place. Just ask Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech, and Florida State--teams so frightened by dressing in the visitor's locker room that they forgot how to play defense. It's interesting to see how the bottom falls out (either offensively or defensively) for certain teams when they leave the friendly confines.

-- Based on Virginia Tech's road efficiency margin, you'd think the Hokies were terrible away from home; the other teams at -10 or worse certainly were. But Tech went 4-4 on the road and beat both Duke and Carolina. Their four road wins came by a combined 18 points; their four losses, on the other hand, were by a combined 68 points.
