  • UNC's Sam Smiley breaks up a pass against San Diego State.

College football has been played in some form for the last 146 seasons, and no team from the Triangle has ever really played for a national championship.

After last week's results this won't be the year.

It's not that anyone can't still have a great season, but there are only about 20 schools than could have a loss and make the new FBS Final Four and none of them are in North Carolina.

Three of the four local Division I teams are in action today, and two of them are at home. Duke (4-1, 0-1 ACC), coming off a 22-10 loss at Miami, is idle.

The show starts at 12:30 (WRAL) at Kenan Stadium, when UNC (2-2, 0-1 ACC) hosts Virginia Tech (3-2, 0-1). And at 2 p.m. at O'Kelly-Riddick Stadium N.C. Central (1-3) will entertain Howard (1-4, 0-2 MEAC) in the Eagles' MEAC opener.

N.C. State (4-1, 0-1 ACC) will visit Clemson (2-2, 1-1) at Death Valley at 3:30 (ESPNU).
