Conference Race Update: ACC

Still Alive: Florida State (Won Atlantic), Georgia Tech (Coastal), Duke (Coastal)

The ACC title match is shaping up nicely after Saturday helped to clean up some of the mess. FSU took care of business and came from behind to take Miami out, leaving Miami dead in the Coastal.
Georgia Tech not only put themselves in the driver's seat for now in the Coastal, but they also eliminated Clemson as an outside threat to FSU. Georgia Tech is done in conference play, but they now have to sit and wait to see if Duke loses just one game to hand the Jackets the division title and a shot at FSU for the ACC title.
If Duke wins out, they win the ACC Coastal by virtue of having already beaten Georgia Tech this season, and Duke would then receive the rematch against FSU in the ACC title game.

Remaining Schedule

Florida State: 11/22 vs. Boston College; 11/29 vs. Florida
Projection: FSU wins both, finishes 12-0

Georgia Tech: 11/29 @ Georgia
Projection: ACC play is completed. Tech fails to clinch division if Duke wins out.

Duke: 11/20 vs. North Carolina; 11/29 vs. Wake Forest
Projection: Duke wins both, clinches rematch with Florida State

Projected Conference Champion: Florida State
Seminoles beat Duke for second consecutive season to advance to first ever final four.
