Pitt already looking forward to making ACC statement against Clemson

Like most college football teams, Pitt has a loosely regulated 24-hour rule during which the next opponent is not mentioned after a game until a day later. That apparently changed for the Panthers immediately following a 28-7 win Saturday at Virginia Tech. In the tunnel to the locker room and once inside, according to reports, players were already talking about playing Clemson. The Tigers and Panthers will square off in a 3:30 p.m. contest Saturday, Oct. 23, at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.

NC State moves up to #18 in Week 8 AP Poll

NC State moved up four spots from #22 to #18 in the Week 8 AP poll. This is the fourth week in a row the Wolfpack has been ranked this season. This also marks their first appearance in the top 20 since 2018. Coincidentally, that was also the Week 8 poll, where they rung in at #16. That was the highest the Pack got to in the ranking that season, but this year is showing the potential of further growth.

When did the Penguins last start without their superstars?

That was the last time the Penguins began a season without either Evgeni Malkin (selected in the 2004 draft) or Sidney Crosby (2005 draft). In his NHL debut, 18-year-old Marc-Andre Fleury made 46 saves— but he couldn’t save the Penguins, who were shut out by the visiting LA Kings in a packed Mellon Arena.

Canadiens' Shea Weber allowed to go on long-term injured reserve

The NHL has permitted the Canadiens to place defenseman Shea Weber on LTIR, reports Pierre LeBrun of TSN and The Athletic in the latest Insider Trading segment. Shortly following the playoffs, Montreal announced Weber would not play at all this season and might not play again, but there were reports that the league wanted to take a closer look at his case since he was able to play for the entirety of the playoffs. To that end, Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly told LeBrun that “We are not currently challenging that Shea Weber satisfied the CBA requirements necessary to qualify for LTIR”, allowing for the possibility for the Canadiens to re-evaluate the situation later on. Montreal will need to make use of Weber’s LTIR assuming goaltender Carey Price returns at some point this season.

NC State vs. Boston College Football Prediction and Preview

NC State -3 When NC State Has the Ball. NC State's offense has been fairly balanced this season. The Wolfpack rank around the middle of the ACC in rushing offense and passing offense. Nothing about the stat sheet stands out as a clear advantage on offense, but they have found enough offense to take care of things this season, including a victory against Clemson. Quarterback Devin Leary has completed 67.4 percent of his passes this season with 12 touchdowns to just two interceptions. But this week Leary will have to continue being efficient against the ACC's top pass defense.

Can the Knicks Prove They’re Ahead of the Pack in Raptors Season Series?

With the Raptors halfway between rebuilding and retooling, the 2019 champs get four chances against the Knicks, a team perhaps firmly ahead in the hierarchy. While there are multiple Eastern Conference contenders in the Atlantic Division this year, there is only one team that has been able to bring home the Larry O’Brien trophy in the last decade: the Toronto Raptors. However, this Raptors team will look a lot different this year as they are getting younger and losing the face of the franchise: Kyle Lowry.
