A full bevy of Thursday and Friday night games kick off what is actually a really good slate this week (okay, well, technically Troy and South Alabama kicked off the week Tuesday night with some Fun Belt action - Troy won 38-17, so you didn’t miss anything). There’s an ACC game each night, which is nice. Remember earlier in the season when you built up some brownie points with the significant other? Yeah, time to cash those in.
Appalachian State is having one heck of a year, so if you don’t want to watch GT @ VT on Thursday night, that’s another good option. Miami @ Boston College should be a fun game on Friday night, especially with AJ Dillon back to full health against that stout Miami D.
The early slate of Saturday games isn’t the greatest, especially in the ACC (Wake Forest @ Louisville is your ACC Pillow Fight of the Week), but there are a few good-enough matchups to keep you entertained until the midday fun kicks in. The World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party shouldn’t disappoint like it has the previous four years.
NC State is up at Syracuse among the evening games.
Oh, and hey, look! An early game for Hawaii this week.
