Ooff. If you think things were bad for Virginia Tech Saturday, try being a Cavaliers fan. After beating Morgan State Wednesday, Virginia lost, 76-54, at Notre Dame. It was one of the most stunning results early in the season, to say the least.

Last week: No. 5

Games this week: Jan. 3 vs. Louisville, Jan. 6 at North Carolina State

Is the what we saw from the Demon Deacons Saturday against Virginia Tech the Demon Deacons we'll see all year long? Highly unlikely, but they are going to be a dangerous team if they can get the balanced scoring they got and with their pressure defense that caused havoc all afternoon for the Hokies.

Last week: No. 12
