This may not be the best year overall for the ACC but it's by far the most entertaining season I have seen in ages. Every game almost seems unpredictable. Just when you think a team is about separate themselves from the rest of the conference they lose to the underdog.
It was much of the same this past week with several teams losing in the closing minutes. Florida State suffered another heart wrenching defeat, but this time to UNC after another wide-right episode. Miami was able to put together a rally and beat Maryland.
N.C. State had a chance to solidify themselves as the team to be in the Atlantic but blew that with a disappointing effort against Clemson in their 14-13 loss.
Virginia Tech was fortunate that Joshua Nesbitt was injured or they likely would have been upset too. Instead they got a little help on a kickoff return for touchdown to give them the 28-21 win over Georgia Tech.
Montel Harris engraved his name into the history books for one of the most prolific ACC running backs ever to play the game. He ran for 183 yards in their 23-13 road win over Wake Forest.
Let's not forget about the shootout in Durham between Duke and Virginia. They combined for a 41 point fourth quarter affair that ended in a 55-48 victory for Duke.
Like I have been saying all season long, this conference is so unprectible and you never know what's going to happen next. There are plenty of more key matchups this week but none bigger than Virginia Tech at North Carolina. A win by UNC will still give them hope of winning the ACC Coastal.
Anything is possible when this conference plays each other. So who knows what will happen this weekend, but it should be another crazy one.
