The Coastal Division race will become much clearer after this weekend, and No. 10 Florida State can clinch the Atlantic Division with a win at Maryland. Wake Forest steps out of conference play the final two weeks, beginning this Saturday at No. 3 Notre Dame.
Here is how we rank the ACC games this weekend:
1. Duke at Georgia Tech, Saturday, 3:30 p.m. ET (ESPNU) -- This is a Coastal Division elimination game. Duke needs to win Saturday and then beat Miami next week to clinch the division. Georgia Tech needs a win Saturday and a Duke win over Miami next week. Georgia Tech would also become bowl-eligible with a win.
2. Wake Forest at No. 3 Notre Dame, Saturday, 3:30 p.m. ET (NBC) -- On paper, Wake Forest doesn't stand much of a chance in South Bend on Saturday. However, the Fighting Irish have been squeaking by at home, winning each of their games by seven points or less.
3. NC State at No. 11 Clemson, Saturday, 3:30 p.m. ET (ABC/ESPN2) -- The Wolfpack easily handled Clemson in Raleigh last year, 37-13. This year, Clemson seems to have taken a step forward while NC State has been inconsistent.
4. No. 10 Florida State at Maryland, Saturday, noon ET (ESPNU) -- The Seminoles can clinch the Atlantic Division with a win. They shouldn't have much of a problem with Maryland, which had a promising season derailed by injuries.
5. North Carolina at Virginia, Thursday, 7:30 p.m. ET (ESPN) -- The Cavaliers are playing a Thursday night game in Charlottesville for the first time since 2006, when they beat North Carolina 23-0. These teams have met every season since 1919.
6. Virginia Tech at Boston College, Saturday, 12:30 p.m. ET (ACC Network) -- There is a very good chance this is the final home game in the Frank Spaziani era at Boston College. The Hokies have to win their last two games to become bowl eligible for the 20th consecutive season.
7. South Florida at Miami, Saturday, 3 p.m. ET (RSN) -- Miami can become bowl-eligible with a win against South Florida Saturday and win the Coastal Division with a victory at Duke next week. There is still the possibility that Miami can self-impose another bowl ban, which won't be decided until the Hurricanes get their sixth win.
