A look around the ACC
Though not yet at the season midpoint, Clemson's bowl hopes already are on the line in Thursday night's game at Virginia. At 1-3, the Tigers have only two games remaining that look like easy wins -- Utah State at home on Oct. 16 and Duke on the road on Nov. 13. "We've talked about kind of starting the season over,'' Bowden said. "We've played four, we had an open date, and now we've got a seven-game season.''
