There are two separate storylines brewing in the ACC.
In the Atlantic Division, the race has been narrowed to Clemson and Wake Forest. At 0-4, Boston College has been mathematically eliminated from the race, and the other teams would need significant help. For the Deacs to be a legitimate threat to the Tigers, though they would have to beat North Carolina on Saturday to avoid a second conference loss.
By comparison, the Coastal Division is so wide open that Duke still controls its own destiny. The Blue Devils have yet to play a Coastal Division opponent. Virginia? In it to win it. The Cavaliers win out, they could be playing in Charlotte. Five of the six teams are within one loss of each other. Georgia Tech needs some help because it already has two division losses. If the Jackets win out, they could still play for the ACC title, but there could also be a third team with just two losses that would win the head-to-head tiebreaker like Miami or Virginia.
Long story short, there are still too many scenarios remaining to deconstruct the Coastal Division race with any certainty. The one thing we know for sure? It's Virginia Tech's division to lose.
For all of the unpredictability in this conference each week, some things never seem to change.
