Question by MR.OLYMPIA: How bad of a 1st week did the ACC have and why is this Conference deserving of an automatic BCS bid?
2 teams from FSC (I-AA) win over ACC teams. Richmond, reigning FSC Champion, beating Duke wasn’t exactly an upset, but what to make of William&Mary beating Virgina 26-14 as the visiting team.
Baylor Bears snap a 9 game road loosing streak, goes back to last year when they won over Buffalo Bulls, by beating Wake Forest 24-21.
Maryland goes out west and gets a real beat down by the Cal Bears 52-13.
North Carolina State at home is held to 3 points by South Carolina.
Sure Virgina Tech played a respectable game against Alabama on national TV , but what does bottom teams of ACC say about the conferences depth.
Was anybody impressed by the wins BC beats North Eastern, Georgia Tech over Jacksonville State and North Carolina over Citadel.
Allot of people like to rip the Mountain West Conference by saying how weak of a division it’s , but is ACC bottom teams really that much stronger.
My biggest problem with BCS is it already determines that ACC and Big East get their tickets punched to a BCS bowl by just being in the conference. While a non BCS team such as BYU, Utah or Boise State will get shut out.
I will be real interested in how TCU does against Clemson come September 26.
Answer by Gary C
so because boston college bea northeastern 56-0 does that mean theyre gonna win the ACC because they beat a FCS team and no one else can? of course not. 1st weeks are non-conference games, therefore they dont hurt theyre chances of winning the ACC. in my mind, the 1st week is preseason for college.
