Votes are in: ACC's most important games

6/17/2013

It’s OK, ACC fans. You don’t have to agree with everything we write.

Just most of it.

Such was the case with the recent “most important game” series, where colleague Andrea Adelson and I picked the make-or-break game on the schedule for each school in the ACC and then narrowed the choices to five for you to cast your vote.

We only disagreed on the key game for four teams -- Duke, Miami, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest. One of the more interesting debates was over Pitt, as the votes were close between the season opener against Florida State and the game against the Hokies, but the Coastal Division clash won out over the Labor Day game.

Here are the most recent results, in what is still a fluid list:

WE AGREE

BOSTON COLLEGE

Our pick: Syracuse

Your vote: 51 percent

CLEMSON

Our pick: Florida State

Your vote: 50 percent

FLORIDA STATE

Our pick: at Clemson

Your vote: 65 percent

GEORGIA TECH

Our pick: Virginia Tech

Your vote: 45 percent

MARYLAND

Our pick: at NC State

Your vote: 31 percent

NORTH CAROLINA

Our pick: Miami

Your vote: 38 percent

NC STATE

Our pick: North Carolina

Your vote: 38 percent

PITT

Our pick: Virginia Tech

Your vote: 37 percent

SYRACUSE

Our pick: Clemson

Your vote: 45 percent

VIRGINIA

Our pick: Virginia Tech

Your vote: 75 percent

DISAGREE

DUKE

Our pick: at Wake Forest

Your vote: at North Carolina 57 percent

Say what?: It ain't basketball season, guys.

MIAMI

Our pick: at North Carolina (14 percent)

Your vote: Florida State 49 percent

Say what?: You're clinging onto the past, Canes. Win the division first.

VIRGINIA TECH

Our pick: Georgia Tech (28 percent)

Your vote: at Miami 46 percent

Say what? That Miami game won't mean as much if the Hokies lose in Atlanta first.

WAKE FOREST

Our pick: Duke

Your vote: NC State 41 percent

Say what? Justifiable, but if the Deacs are going to make a comeback, they can't be second-fiddle in-state to Duke.
