Here’s what’s on the schedule this week around the ACC and the immediate region, plus keeping an eye on the Wolfpack’s 2018 opponents and other potentially intriguing national games... and, oh yeah, a hurricane.

Hurricane Florence has already forced the cancellation of games for three ACC teams this week, including the West Virginia @ NC State game that we were all looking forward to (the other ACC cancellations are East Carolina @ Virginia Tech and UCF @ UNC-CH), as well as a couple other games that would normally be on this list (Southern Miss @ Appalachian State and Marshall @ South Carolina). Hurricanes are the worst, man.

Assuming you still have power after this storm comes through, the games to watch are listed below... and we could all use a reprieve from this awfulness.

Stay safe, BTP community!

(Note: F/+ (a combination of FEI and S&P+ rankings) and Sagarin rankings listed for each team. For D1-AA/FCS teams, only the Sagarin ranking is listed.)
