Bracketology Predictions: Virginia Tech, Clemson Maybe; Boston College No

Last year was supposed to be a down year in the NCAA Tournament for the ACC, with only six teams making it in, but this year is expected to be even more down-y. Most March Madness bracketologists are predicting only five ACC teams will make it into this year's tournament bracket, which will be debuted at 6 pm EST on CBS. And everybody already knows who two of those teams are.

Besides the Duke Blue Devils and North Carolina Tar Heels, how's the conference looking? Here's the ACC according to the four bracketologists I read (one thing they all agree on? Boston College just misses out): 

SB Nation: Chris Dobbertean had Clemson and Virginia Tech comfortably in, avoiding the play-in round, at the start of yesterday's action. Both teams fell somewhat by the day's final bracketology predictions, however, with the Tigers slipping into dreaded last-four-in territory. By Sunday's bracket projection, the Tigers were out.

Bracketology 101: Clemson is the last team in, but they're in, while Virginia Tech is nice and cozy as an 11 seed.

ESPN: Joe Lunardi likes Clemson a little more than Virginia Tech, though both are stuck in the play-in round.

CBS Sports: Jerry Palm mostly agrees with Joe Lunardi on the two ACC bubble teams, though Clemson is on the brink of avoiding the round of shame.
