Georgia Tech-Florida State Highlights Week 10 in the ACC

Justin CocchiolaCorrespondent IOctober 31, 2008

The ACC continues to be unpredictable, as Virginia is the hottest team in the conference and Duke is beating teams that were leading the SEC a few weeks ago.  This week should be much of the same, so here are my Week 10 predictions.


Virginia 28, Miami 24

Virginia has been red hot and sits atop the Coastal Division in the ACC.  However, Miami could jump to the top of this division with a win over UVA and a Georgia Tech loss.  Look for Miami to struggle stopping the run, with Cedric Peerman leading the way for the Cavs, but Marc Verica may make enough mistakes for the Canes to come out on top.


Clemson 31, Boston College 27

Boston College is coming off a dominating loss at the hands of North Carolina and looks to rebound against Clemson.  Despite being 3-4, and 1-3 in the ACC, Clemson still has the talent they had at the beginning of the season.

The question is, will the bye week help Dabo Swinney and this Tigers team?  If not, there's no hope for Clemson, but I'm looking for James Davis to run well behind a rested and highly motivated offensive line.


Duke 17, Wake Forest 10

Wake Forest is really struggling.  Three losses in their last four games have the team scrambling to find its identity.  Duke is coming off a big win against Vanderbilt and should be able to make enough plays defensively to win this game.  If the Blue Devils do win, it would be their fifth win of the year.  Who saw that coming?


Florida State 35, Georgia Tech 31

This should be a very good game.  Florida State is coming off their big win against Virginia Tech, but Georgia Tech is much better offensively.  Georgia Tech should rush for well over 200 yards, but it won't be enough, as Christian Ponder and Antone Smith have been playing very well the last few weeks.
