    By the Associated Press

    Here are 10 things to watch while the ACC prepares for another sea-son:

    ENTER LOUIS-VILLE, EXIT MARY-LAND: Fast-rising Lou-isville is in the ACC after founding member Mary-land left for the Big Ten.

    The Cardinals seem to have the players and the resources to re-main competitive during their step-up in competi-tion.

    PRODIGAL PETRI-NO: The new coach for the ACCs newest team isnt really all that new: Bobby Petrino is back in charge at Louisville. He took a circuitous path that included a messy scandal at Arkansas to lead him back to the Cardinals.

    THE GOLDEN DOME: This is the first year of Notre Dames scheduling arrange-ment with the ACC. The independent Irish play four games against ACC schools as part of their membership in all other sports the league spon-sors. Notre Dame will play host to North Caro-lina and Louisville, will visit Florida State and

    will face Syracuse in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

    QB QUESTIONS: Only four schools re-turn their full-time starting quarterbacks from 2013, and only one of those players (Dukes Anthony Boone) started a game before 2013. The QB with the most career starts? Winston, the red-shirt sophomore who started all 14 games of the Seminoles national title run.

    CLOUDY COASTAL: The Coastal Division could be a crapshoot. Miami was voted as the preseason favorite even though both defending champ Duke and North Carolina each received more first-place votes than the Hurricanes. I believe anybody can win it, Tar Heels coach Lar-ry Fedora said.

    MIAMIS DUKE RE-TURNS: Miami running back Duke Johnson says hes at 100 percent after breaking his ankle last season against Florida State. Johnson appears to be the leagues top offensive player not named Jameis Winston.

    DUKE REDUX? What can Duke do for an en-core? The Blue Devils are coming off the best season in school history winning 10 games, claiming the Coastal ti-tle, finishing at No. 23 in the AP Top 25 and reach-ing the Chick-fil-A Bowl. ACC Coach of the Year David Cutcliffe says he believes his program is getting stronger.

    REALLY SPECIAL TEAMS: ACC teams combined to return 16 kickoffs and punts for touchdowns last season, and North Carolinas Ryan Switzer tied an

    NCAA single-season re-cord with five punt re-turns for scores.

    SECOND TIME AROUND: Both Pitts-burgh and Syracuse went 7-6 and reached low-level bowl games in their debut ACC sea-sons. They both want to do more in Year 2. Said Pitt coach Paul Chryst: As proud as we are to be members of the ACC, our goal and objective is to make an impact on it.

    BIG GAMES: There are a few marquee non-conference games ear-ly in the ACC season. Florida State opens with Oklahoma State in Ir-ving, Texas, while Clem-son heads to Georgia. The following week, Vir-ginia Tech visits Ohio State, and later, South-ern California heads to Boston College and Mi-ami travels to Nebraska.

    WR CONSISTENCY: Sophomores BraLon Cherry, Jumichael Ramos and Marquez Valdes-Scantling must grow into reliable targets. Doeren said Cher-ry has been the most improved among last years young receivers, while Janu-ary enrollee Bo Hines could contribute as a freshman.

    MORE DBS: N.C. State will use a 4-2-5 defensive formation as its base scheme this year. Doeren said adding that fifth defensive back will get more speed on the field. I know we love getting more

    DBs on the field, Tocho said. Were looking forward to the switch. Weve adapted well in practice.

    RUN DEFENSE: Will the Wolfpack be able to stop the run? N.C. State was next-to-last in the ACC in rushing de-fense (180.2 yards per game) but gave up a league-worst 5 yards per carry a total inflated by Boston Colleges Andre Williams running for 339 yards in a 38-21 win. N.C. State allowed a 100-yard rusher in each of its last three games.

    FINISHING GAMES: The Wolfpack certainly had chances to avoid that winless ACC record. N.C. State was tied with Syracuse midway through the fourth quarter before yielding two touchdowns. It trailed rival North Carolina 21-19 entering the fourth but couldnt rally. It led at Duke 20-17 with 6 minutes left before giving up three touchdowns in 26 seconds. Our main focus is finishing, McGill said, be-cause thats what we didnt do last year and thats what gave us the record we had.

    EARLY CONFIDENCE: N.C. State needs a good start. Doerens team opens at home against Georgia South-ern and Old Dominion, then travels to South Florida (2-10 last year) followed by a home game against Presbyterian. Things get tougher from there, start-ing with a visit from reigning national champion Florida State and Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston on Sept. 27. Theres also trips to Atlantic Division opponents Clemson, ACC new-comer Louisville and Syracuse in that five-game stretch.

    Coming off its second-consecutive state cham-pionship appearance, the Vikings will once again rely on their profound wing-T offense to drive them to the title game. After averaging more than 43-points per game and coming one-point short of an un-defeated season, head coach Robert Cody returns Malik Webb, a dua
