Preview & Pick for 2016 ACC Championship Game

The Clemson Tigers currently sit at No. 3 in the rankings, and a win over Virginia Tech would likely clinch their spot in the College Football Playoff. Don’t overlook the Hokies, though. It was an impressive first season for head coach Justin Fuente, who has led Virginia Tech to a 9-3 record and wins over North Carolina and Miami.   When: Sat. Dec. 3, 8 p.m. ET, ABC Where: Camping World Stadium in Orlando, FL Line:...

Week 13 ACC Pick of the Week

ACC Pick of the Week: South Carolina @ Clemson Clemson is a huge favorite in this one, but South Carolina will keep this one closer than expected. The Gamecocks are a great pick at +24, and there’s a few reasons why. First, the Gamecocks offense has been completely different with Jake Bentley at quarterback. There is talent at the skill positions–most namely Deebo Samuel and Bryan Edwards–and...

Week 12 ACC Pick of the Week

ACC Pick of the Week- Louisville @ Houston The College Football Playoff rankings came out Tuesday night with Louisville at No. 5, and the first thing I worry about here is the amount of attention being put on Houston. It could go one of two ways: the Cardinals players will rally behind the No. 5 spot and play with a lot of intensity, or the focus won’t be there early in the game. Houston doesn’t own a spot in the...

Week 11 ACC Pick of the Week

ACC Pick of the Week: Wake Forest @ Louisville Don’t look now, but Wake Forest is already bowl-eligible. Behind solid defensive play, the Demon Deacons now sit at 6-3 with three games left. Wake’s defense ranks 14th nationally, giving up 18.4 points per game this year. They were 21-point road underdogs against Florida State, but the defense gave up just 3.2 yards per carry in a 17-6 loss. Louisville’s...

Week 10 ACC Pick of the Week

ACC Pick of the Week: Florida State @ North Carolina State The Wolfpack have actually won two of the last three times in Raleigh (28-24 in 2010, 17-16 in 2012). Although NC State lost the 2014 matchup at Carter-Finley Stadium, the Seminoles didn’t take their first lead in that game until late in the third quarter. And that was with No. 1 overall pick Jameis Winston. Quarterback Deondre Francois has taken a lot of hits...

Florida State Coach Jimbo Fisher Fined for Outburs...

Football Coach Jimbo Fisher was fined $20,000 for criticizing some of the officiating decisions that were made during the Saturday game against Clemson. The results of the game didn’t exactly upset college football championship lines. Fisher was livid over the unsportsmanlike conduct penalty that followed a chop block on Freddie Stevenson (which negated a long run from Dalvin Cook); he also wasn’t happy that Tre Marshall...

Week 9 ACC Pick of the Week

ACC Pick of the Week- Clemson @ Florida State Over/Under 60.5 The pick of the week is under in the primetime showdown. Brent Venables has yet another tough defense at Clemson, and the Tigers front seven will present challenges for Florida State. Clemson doesn’t have the big names from last year on the defensive line, but I would argue that this unit has better depth. Christian Wilkins has been a force off the edge, and...

Week 8 ACC Pick of the Week

Week 8 isn’t a very busy week in the ACC. Six teams are off this week, so that leaves us with just four conference games to choose from. Miami will travel to Virginia Tech on Thursday night in what could be a deciding game in the ACC Coastal, but there’s some interesting matchups on Saturday as well. Syracuse will try to build off the Virginia Tech win as it travels to Boston College. North Carolina—fresh off a...

Week 7 ACC Pick of the Week

ACC Pick of the Week: NC State @ Clemson (-17.5)  The Clemson offense is rolling right now, and a lot of that credit goes to the offensive line. The Tigers have rushed for 200+ yards in consecutive weeks, and that is opening up big plays down the field. By the way, we should expect a lot of those big plays on Saturday. The 2015 matchup between these schools saw Clemson’s offense explode with seven plays of 25 yards or...

Week 6 ACC Pick of the Week

The picks went 2-1 last week, and with that let’s take a look at the ACC slate for Week 6. Undefeated Clemson heads to Boston College on Friday night, and the anticipated showdown between Florida State and Miami should be exciting. Both the ACC pick of the week and bonus pick have been winners two weeks in a row, so let’s see if we can make it three this week. ACC Pick of the Week- Georgia Tech @ Pittsburgh...
