As conference play starts to wrap up for most ACC teams, and ‘ACC Gridiron LIVE’ presented by McAlister’s Deli is set to once again feature in-depth news and analysis from around the league.
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.

Virginia running back Kevin Parks, the second-leading active rusher in the conference behind Miami’s Duke Johnson, is profiled by our team. The Cavaliers rusher is just 31 yards shy of his fourth consecutive 700-yard season. Louisville coach Bobby Petrino, whose Cardinals are set to take on Notre Dame in a high-profile showdown this weekend, will also lead a whiteboard session diagramming his philosophy on an effective passing offense.
Our crew will also break down what makes Louisville wideout DeVante Parker such an excellent option in Petrino’s offense. Additionally, with just two games remaining, four ACC teams still have a chance to reach bowl eligibility (Virginia, Virginia Tech, North Carolina, Pittsburgh). Who gets the job done?
This week’s episode will also reveal the champion of our ACC Greatest Player Tournament, unveiling the winner of the Luke Kuechly-Calvin Johnson final matchup.
