What’s coming to ‘ACC Gridiron LIVE’ this week

With two weeks of college football in the books, ‘ACC Gridiron LIVE’ presented by McAlister’s Deli will feature in-depth news and analysis from the conference’s interesting slate of games.

Hosted by Emmy Award-winning James Bates, former NFLers Alge Crumpler and Coy Wire and coach Jim Grobe will talk all things ACC football throughout the season, while current Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen will also appear each week as a contributor.

Bates sits down for a one-on-one feature with David Cutcliffe, head coach of the defending Coastal Division champion Duke Blue Devils. Cutcliffe’s team is off to a 2-0 start this seasons with wins over Elon and Troy.

Additional features include Coach Grobe with Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson for a whiteboard session on the Yellow Jackets’ triple-option offense and Olsen discussing ACC players with NFL potential, including Clemson defensive end Vic Beasley and many of Florida State’s draft-eligible names. Olsen’s segment also includes a fan Twitter question regarding NFL-caliber ACC players.

The crew will also offer breakdowns on Georgia Tech’s new quarterback Justin Thomas and Virginia’s defensive pressure.

This week’s episode marks another week in the ACC Greatest Player Tournament, where the winners of last week’s featured matchups — Tajh Boyd-Torry Holt and Julius Peppers-Peter Boulware — are unveiled. Our team will discuss this week’s matchups of Aaron Donald-Bjoern Werner and Calvin Johnson-Brian Piccolo.

There will also be Toyota Picks of the Week for every ACC game as well as game previews on No. 21 Louisville at Virginia, No. 9 USC at Boston College, Kansas at Duke, Georgia Southern at Georgia Tech and East Carolina at No. 17 Virginia Tech.
