Four ACC games officially on the books for Saturday, with North Carolina and North Carolina State playing non-conference contests. When and where to watch all the Atlantic Coast Conference teams in action:
Maryland at No. 13 Georgia Tech: The Terrapins must find a way to slow down the Yellow Jacket's top ranked rushing attack if they are to have any chance in this game. Maryland quarterback Danny O'Brien will need to put points on the board to keep up with Georgia Tech's prolific ground game (378.2 yards rushing per game, 24 touchdowns). Rob Stone and Danny Kanell have the call at noon on ESPNU. Visit Testudo Times for all your Terrapins news. For more on Georgia Tech, visit From the Rumble Seat and SB Nation Atlanta.
Louisville at North Carolina: The last time these two teams met, in 2005, Louisville won 69-14. I think today might be a tad different. With a win, the Tar Heels would open 4-0 at home for the first time since 1997. The Bobs will be in the broadcast booth on ESPN2, Bob Wischusen and Bob Davie.

No. 23 Florida State at Wake Forest: If you like passes and aerial attacks, this game is for you. Whether E.J. Manuel or Clint Trickett is under center for the Seminoles, they will toss it around. Wake Forest quarterback Tanner Price has completed 63 percent of his passes on the year for 1,119 yards and seven touchdowns against just two interceptions. Steve Martin, Dave Archer, Scott Pryzwansky with the call at 12:30 P.M. on the ACC Network. For more on the Demon Deacons, visit Blogger So Dear. For more on Florida State, visit Tomahawk Nation.
Boston College at No. 8 Clemson: With last week's 23-3 defeat of Virginia Tech, Clemson became the first ACC team ever to win three straight games against teams ranked in the Top 25 (Auburn and Florida State were the other victims). Quarterback Tajh Boyd leads a potent Tigers offensive attack, ranked second in the conference and 20th nationally. Rich Waltz, Keith Jones, Jenn Hildreth are your broadcast team, 3:00 P.M. on the ACC Network. For more on Boston College, visit BC Interruption and SB Nation Boston.

Central Michigan at North Carolina State: The Wolfpack, losers of two straight, hope a home win over the Chippewas can right the ship before they end their season with a bye and six straight conference games. Central Michigan will be no pushover, however. The Chippewas scored 48 points last week in a seven point win over Northern Illinois. For more on the Wolfpack, visit Backing the Pack.
Miami at No. 21 Virginia Tech: The Hokies look to rebound after their 23-3 drubbing at the hands of Clemson in their conference opener. Miami beat up on cupcake Bethune-Cookman last week, and now must travel to Blacksburg in search of their first ACC win. The Hurricanes have dropped two straight and six of eight against Virginia Tech. Mike Patrick and Craig James are your broadcast team, 3:30 P.M., ABC/ESPN. For more on Miami, visit 7th Floor Blog.
