This is a crucial game on a weekday thanks to the uncertainty of the ACC these days. While Florida State and Clemson are dominant, only one of them can come out of the Atlantic Division to take on the Coastal winner.
Duke still has punchers shot, but the winner of the Canes-Hokies will likely appear in Charlotte. Miami FL has not even had a shot to play for the ACC title and they have not appeared in a BCS bowl since the 2003-2004 Orange Bowl.
Yes, it has been that brutal for the Canes these days and that is not even mentioning the major hits they have taken off the field with all of their NCAA violations and sanctions where we have seen seemingly hundreds of former players take a hit in the public eye.
Frank Beamer and the Hokies have a ton on the line since Virginia Tech is jeopardy of posting yet ...
