Maryland was not done making news, though, as they announced their intent to leave for the Big 10 in 2014.

    Clear Your Schedule – ACC, Week 12

    By Brian Wilmer -

    Duke-Georgia TechAnother week, another leader in the ACC Coastal division. The next batter up is Georgia Tech, ascending to the throne after a 68-50 shootout in Chapel Hill. The Coastal still has three teams who could make it to Charlotte, and two of those play each other this weekend. The Atlantic almost saw a new leader itself last week, but Florida State managed to hold on to defeat a game Virginia Tech squad in Blacksburg. The scenario remains the same for both the Seminoles and Tigers as it has been ever since Florida State lost in Raleigh. Clemson has to beat NC State in Death Valley, then hope for the seemingly impossible in a Maryland victory over Florida State.

    If there is one thing this ACC season has taught us, though, it is that anything can — and will — happen in this conference. This week’s slate contains some key conference matchups and a few non-conference tilts, and the virtual car is full of gas for our regular trip around the ACC. Read Full Story »
