Upsets fuel bowl hopes

It takes six wins to make a bowl game. It took a minor miracle -- at least in a historical context -- for N.C. State and North Carolina to get to 4-4 on Saturday and start legitimately thinking of a bowl destination. With N.C. State's upset of No. 9 Florida State, 20-15 in Tallahassee, and UNC's 16-14 win over 19th-ranked Boston College, both schools beat ranked teams on the same day. How rare was that coincidence? Since 1936, UNC and N.C. State have beaten ranked opponents on the same day only once in 69 years! (Raleigh News & Observer)
