In case you didn’t notice, the ACC Coastal Division race is pretty tight. No
team has lost more than two ACC games, but five of the six teams in the division
have dropped two conference games. Virginia sits at the top with one loss, and
they are one of two teams in the conference that controls their own destiny.
Virginia Tech is the other.

Last season we saw the annual VT-UVA game taken to new heights, with the game
in Charlottesville deciding the winner of the Coastal Division. Will we see the
same thing on November 29 in Blacksburg this year?

In this article, we’ll take a look at the remaining schedules of each Coastal
Division team and assess their chances of heading to Tampa for the ACC
Championship Game. First, let’s take a look at the standings.

School Conference Pct. Overall Pct.
Virginia 3-1 .750 5-3 .625
Georgia Tech 3-2 .600 6-2 .750
North Carolina 2-2 .500 6-2
