1. Florida State is a 3-point favorite in tomorrow night’s showdown at Clemson. Who do you like? Staying true to my pick to win the national title, give me the Seminoles. Pretty good story in this week’s edition of SI on FSU QB Jameis Winston, if you’re like me and just received your copy.
2. Miami struggles most of the night in Chapel Hill but scores with 16 seconds left to beat UNC 27-23 and improve to 6-0, 2-0 ACC.
3. I’ll have a live blog from tomorrow’s UVa-Duke game, which kicks at 3:30. Cavs are a 2.5-point favorite.
4. Daleville is the place to be tonight (and I’ll see you there), as Lord Botetourt hosts Northside in a battle of Timesland’s top two ranked teams.
5. I viewed last night’s ALCS Game 5 as a must win for the Tigers, and they couldn’t get it. Boston wins 4-3 to take a 3-2 lead in the series, which now shifts back to Fenway. Big RBI double early by Xander Bogaerts, who was starring in Salem as a 19-year-old just one year ago. Extraordinarily affable young man, he is.
