    ACC Football Week 13

    Week 13 kicks into action today with the Virginia/Virginia Tech game at 3:30 pm. Saturday schedule includes multiple rivalry games. I am traveling and posting from an iPad so I am not going to list all the games.

    Travel safe Bob, and I commend you again for being amongst the diehard Duke football fans.

    UVA is 7-4, VT is 4-6 (really hard for me to believe). I guess we want VT to win so we look better than UVA to a bowl selection committee although not sure it really matters even if we get to 8-4. But is that right?

    I’ll let the bowl chips fall where they fall. I’m rooting for Virginia.

    You are probably going to be disappointed. 14-0 VPI in the 2ndQ. Hokies right now want it more. Take note Devils.

    Indeed take note....it's almost creepy how the bowl thing is exactly reversed from last season when these two teams met. I think Duke is better, but I also think Duke is more injured (Wake's pretty banged up too, both teams hard luck) and I think it will be hard for Duke to match their incentive. 50-50 match up in my mind.

    24-14 VPI. I had no idea Virginia has not beaten the Techsters in 14 straight tries. WOW.

    Great 2nd half by Perkins and Virginia, they now lead 28-24 with just minutes to go.

    What a game - Tech ties it at 31 with 1:51 to go, fumbling the ball in the end zone and recovering.

    Anybody else feel sorry for UVA?

    I wouldn’t wish that ending on anybody not wearing baby blue…

    The Virginia QB will never forget that play.

    To me, growing up in Waynesboro just across the Blue Ridge from Charlottesville, UVA is uNC-Lite. At least there is a "U" there … but in my experience the alumni are almost as condescending. I thoroughly enjoyed that ending.

    I'm not really sure what I've done to deserve some of the devastating losses I've endured as a UVA fan

    Maybe it’s a character-building exercise?

    Not gonna get much sympathy around here...though you will get empathy...as I'm pretty sure Duke leads the universe in agonizing football losses...

    I'll echo HereBeforeCoachK... we've felt your pain too many times over the years ourselves.

    You could be a Duke fan, too. We've also suffered some gut-wrenchers.

    Edit: We've been back in town a bit over an hour and I just saw HBCK's response.

    Oh, and BuschDevil's, too.
