Tommy Bowden is out as Clemson coach, and the loss to the Terps was a factor. Bowden had said Maryland was going to be a "test" for his team and a counter to those who contended the Tigers weren't playing physical football. Clemson had been manhandled by Alabama in its opener and had won three in a row heading into the Maryland game. The loss at Wake Forest last week didn't help his cause, but what really got Bowden in trouble was losing that 17-6 lead to the Terps in front of 81,000 fans at Death Valley.

TEMPE, Ariz. -- They are gathered here, more than 30 family members, hunkered down in a string of rooms and suites at a nearby resort in Scottsdale. When it comes to visiting with the grandparents, the Bowdens do it in style. Of course, they wouldn't be here, soaking up the Arizona sun, if it were not for second-ranked Florida State being invited to play top-ranked Tennessee in Monday night's Fiesta Bowl. And most of them wouldn't be here, literally speaking, if it were not for Ann and Bobby Bowden.

Four head coaches will make their Atlantic Coast Conference debuts with new programs Saturday, but Boston College coach Jeff Jagodzinski perhaps will have the roughest initiation - opening the season against defending conference champion Wake Forest. It's veteran Demon Deacons coach Jim Grobe, though, who is feeling "uncomfortable." "We've got a whole bunch of issues," said Grobe, whose team will travel to Chestnut Hill, Mass., for the 3:30 p.m., ABC-televised opener. Among his concerns is the fact that Wake Forest will start the season on the road against an Atlantic Division rival instead of a nonconference cream puff.

It isn't that much of a stretch when talking about the Bowdens to refer to them as the First Family of college football. Bobby Bowden, the head coach at Florida State for the last 29 years, is the NCAA's all-time leader in victories with 347, and is one of the sport's most refreshing, outgoing and interesting characters. Tommy Bowden, the head coach at Clemson, is one of Bobby Bowden's four sons, and he has gone 40-28 with the Tigers over the past six seasons. Terry Bowden, another one of Bobby Bowden's sons, was 47-16-1 as the coach at Auburn before leaving the school in 1998.

The next time a college football coach complains that his athletic director has saddled him with a schedule that's just too difficult, they might want to first envision what it's like to walk a mile in the shoes of Duke coach Ted Roof. Aside from the fact that Roof has to recruit with some of the highest academic standards in the country, the Blue Devils are the only team in the Atlantic Coast Conference this year that plays more games on the road (six) than it does at home (five). To top it off, Duke began the 2004 season with three straight road games against three quality opponents in Navy, Connecticut and Virginia Tech.

Clemson@Wake Forest 7:30 p.m. [ESPN] Clemson probably is still scratching its helmets wondering how it lost to Maryland. Tigers coach Tommy Bowden has a 7-2 record against No. 21 Wake, though most of the games have been close. The Demon Deacons have reversed their normal offensive emphasis, turning into a passing team. They lead the Atlantic Coast Conference in passing. However, their running game has stalled. Two weeks ago, Navy held Wake to 43 yards on the ground.

North Carolina State coach Chuck Amato described his team's dramatic end to an upset of Boston College on Sept. 23 as 90 seconds of college football that will "live on in the history of this university forever." The imminent success it generated in the unpredictable Atlantic Coast Conference, though, might not last longer than tonight. Maryland@Georgia Tech Saturday, 3:30 p.m., ESPNU, 1300 AM, 105.7 FM Line: Georgia Tech by 14 ACC SURPRISES Teams in the ACC have made it more interesting every week, and it's added up to a jumbled mess after a month of play.

Clemson (9-4, 5-3 ACC) Strengths: Quarterback Charlie Whitehurst has started for the better part of two seasons now, and this year, he might just be the best offensive player in the conference. Whitehurst threw for 3,561 yards and 21 touchdowns last season, and he should improve on those numbers. The Tigers also have a solid defensive secondary, led by cornerback Justin Miller, and an all-ACC linebacker in Leroy Hill. Weaknesses: Clemson lost its two best receivers to the NFL, and its running game looked anemic during spring drills.
