ACC Atlantic Schedules & Predictions

ACC Team Previews
ATLANTIC: Boston College | Clemson | FSU
Louisville | NC State | Syracuse | Wake Forest

COASTAL: Duke | Georgia Tech | Miami
North Carolina | Pitt | Virginia | Virginia Tech

ACC Atlantic

1. Clemson
2. Florida State
T3. Louisville
T3. NC State
T5. Boston College
T5. Syracuse
T.5 Wake Forest

– For the most part, the predictions here match up with the ACC Preseason Team Rankings – based on how good the teams are coming into the season – with a few little twists and turn along the way.

The call is that Clemson will drop a game it shouldn’t – like the Syracuse game of last season – but will still take the Atlantic. There won’t be anyone else in the division who can come close.

– Florida State will be a wee bit flaky late in the season. Having to go on the road for a few nasty games, and having to deal with Clemson – will be enough to keep the Noles outside of the top spot.

– In all, as long as there aren’t any massive mistakes in non-conference play, everyone in the division should be good enough to get to six wins and a bowl. This year, that includes Syracuse.
