The path to the ACC Coastal Division title goes through….Duke.  Miami and Georgia Tech have one conference game remaining. They both play Duke. Georgia Tech host Duke this week, Miami gets them the next week.  There is a chance that a .500 team could be playing in the ACCCG.

The Coastal is down to FSU and Clemson. All Florida State has to do is beat Maryland this weekend. Clemson needs FSU to lose and then beat NC State.

NC State 37, Wake Forest 6.  The Wolfpack snapped their two game losing streak and became bowl eligible. Tobias Palmer had a 100 yard kickoff return for a TD to open the second half. Wake is now 5-5 and plays Notre Dame, NC State travels to Clemson.

Georgia Tech 68, UNC 50. This was the highest scoring game in ACC history. UNC basketball gave up fewer points to FAU.  Once again UNC could not stop Paul Johnson’s offense. The Tar Heels gave up 588 yards in total offense with 380 of that on the ground,Georgia Tech also had a kickoff return for a TD. The Yellow Jackets put themselves right back in position to win the Coastal Division, while UNC has some serious defensive issues to address. UNC next plays Virginia, who has suddenly won two games in a row.

Virginia 41, Miami 40.  Michael Rocco threw four touchdown passes, the last one,  a 10-yard touchdown pass to Jake McGee with 6 seconds remaining to give the Cavaliers their third straight win over Miami.

Clemson easily beat Maryland 45-10

Boston College lost to Notre Dame 21-6 in the Catholic Bowl.

  1. UVa’s recent surge has me more than a little concerned about the Hokies chances of making a bowl game. At least we’ve got them at home. But still, ugh.

  2. Miami and GT at 4-3. Miami holds the tiebreaker….BUT….

    both still have to play Duke.

    At 3-3, the Devils hold the key to the ACCCG.

    Too funny.

  3. UNC wasn’t really trying very hard because of the bowl ban. They don’t have anything to prove this year, might as well have some fun and give the secondary a chance to get in some conditioning drills running 30 yard sprints to the goal line.

  4. I saw a bowl prediction that had FSU and Clemson (and Notre Dame) getting BCS bowl bids. It had NC State in the Chick-Fil-A Bowl.

    Wonder what does Nate Silver think?

  5. Nino…being all politically topical.

    I have to admit that I’ve been geeking out on the post-election CSI of Romney’s campaign. The Monday Morning QBing has been weirdly fascinating for me.

  6. All the project ORCA stuff and how poorly they predicted turnouts by demographics and how the primary process killed their general election.

    But the main thing that is fascinating is how confident the Republicans were of a victory. They thought they had it in the bag…its almost Dewey-Truman.

    The ORCA debacle was definitely interesting.

    and when you have “experts” like Dick Morris admitting that he just basically lied to viewers to try and make Romney’s poll numbers look better, it is not a good thing.
