The ACC heads into Week 11 with three bowl-eligible teams: Florida State, Clemson and Duke. Three teams -- Miami (5-4), NC State (5-4) and Wake Forest (5-4) can become bowl eligible with a win this week, but Wake Forest is at NC State, so at most the ACC would only have two more teams to add to the list this weekend. With only three more weeks remaining in the regular season, time is running out. Boston College is the only ACC team that has played its way out of a bowl.

Here's a look at who needs to do what to reach the postseason:

NEEDS ONE WIN

Wake Forest: (at NC State, at Notre Dame, Vanderbilt)

NC State: (Wake Forest, at Clemson, Boston College)

Miami: (at Virginia, South Florida, at Duke)

NEEDS TWO WINS

Maryland: (at No. 13 Clemson, No. 10 Florida State, at North Carolina)

Georgia Tech: (at North Carolina, Duke, at Georgia)

Virginia Tech: (Florida State, at Boston College, Virginia)

NEEDS THREE WINS

Virginia: (Miami, North Carolina, at Virginia Tech)
