Week 7 Preview, Part II: Siesta Saturday

One half of the ACC is off tomorrow, while two other league members cracked helmets last night - meaning this is the lightest fall Saturday in the conference in years. And the following previews are equally skimpy...

EAST CAROLINA (3-2) at VIRGINIA (2-3)
Saturday, 10/11/08, noon ET - Scott Stadium, Charlottesville, VA
Series Record: East Carolina leads 2-0; the Pirates won the last meeting 31-21 in 2006
Gut Feeling: The Hoos return to their losing ways, but they fall in respectable fashion this time. East Carolina 26, Virginia 17

GARDNER-WEBB (2-3) at GEORGIA TECH (4-1)
Saturday, 10/11/08, 3:30 pm ET - Bobby Dodd Stadium, Atlanta, GA
Series Record: first meeting
Gut Feeling: A clinic. Georgia Tech 48, Gardner-Webb 7

NOTRE DAME (4-1) at NORTH CAROLINA (4-1)

Saturday, 10/11/08, 3:30pm ET - Kenan Stadium, Chapel Hill, NC
Series Record: Notre Dame leads 16-1; the Irish won the last meeting 45-26 in 2006
Gut Feeling: The Heels roll their third straight non-conference BCS opponent. North Carolina 34, Notre Dame 21

UCF (2-3) at MIAMI (2-3)
Saturday, 10/11/08, 3:45pm ET - Dolphin Stadium, Miami Gardens, FL
Series Record: first meeting
Gut Feeling: The lessons learned against UNC and FSU are put into action. Miami 34, UCF 14

That's all folks.
