Not a lot of great match-ups Thursday and Friday, so you might as well tune in to see a few fellow ACC teams. It’ll be the first look at how Wake will be this year, plus that Syracuse-Western Michigan game might be more entertaining than you would think.

There are plenty of games to keep you entertained all day Saturday. The Sunday and Monday games (the only ones in all of D1-A/FBS those days) have an ACC flair and should be fantastic match-ups.
