Teams moving from Big East to ACC know what to expect (ESPN)
Former Boston College coach Al Skinner coached in the Big East and the ACC and was the coach of the year in both conferences. "It's a lateral move for sure," Skinner said. "It's almost like the old Big East, in the sense that a lot of quality teams from the Big East are now in the ACC. It can be a stronger league once Louisville gets in there. It could be back to being the No. 1 basketball conference in the country. The only difference is playing in a different part of the country.

The other spot may be manned by Seth Betancourt, another rising tackle anxious to continue the BC tradition of churning out elite linemen.

The tandem of playing at UCLA and at Texas is definitely a tough start. Minnesota, San Diego State, and UL Lafayette, without a doubt, adds to the complexity of this slate as well. The weak spot is the end of the schedule, which closes with Boston College, at Florida Atlantic, and Idaho at home. That should help NMSU add some wins to the column, as should playing Abilene Christian.
