ACC race update: Week 12

By Heather Dinich

With only two weeks remaining in the regular season, the Coastal Divsion race is still wide open, and the possibility that Miami self-imposes a bowl ban still remains. Duke, Miami and Georgia Tech are the only teams from the Coastal Division currently in the race. At least one of them, maybe two, will finish 5-3. In the Atlantic Division, FSU and Clemson are the only teams still in the race.

Here's at look at how the ACC race stands based on what we know right now heading into Week 12:


North Carolina complicates things. Though ineligible for the ACC title and postseason play, North Carolina’s results and records still figure into the league’s tiebreaker computations, which first take into account overall conference record; then head-to-head competition; divisional record; and wins against the top-ranked teams in the division. Should there be a three-way tie with Miami, UNC and Georgia Tech, Miami would win.
