Both of our partner conferences are in the thick of league play this weekend as the championship races start to take shape.

With current ACC division leaders Clemson (Atlantic) and Georgia Tech (Coastal) at home against Boston College and Maryland, respectively, a pair of games - Florida State at Wake Forest and Miami at Virginia Tech - are almost critical to keep pace before entering the second half of the year.

In the Big East, preseason favorite West Virginia opens conference play against Connecticut, but another game, Pittsburgh at Rutgers, features the two teams atop the standings after one week. The Panthers and Scarlet Knights are our Game of the Week.

Additionally, Notre Dame returns to South Bend to host a tough Air Force team.

Florida Citrus Sports selection committee members will be on the road this weekend representing the Champs Sports Bowl at all of those games above, plus Louisville at North Carolina and Central Michigan at NC State.
