Clemson and Virginia Tech are poised for a rematch in the ACC Championship, but upstart Virginia is still alive in the Coastal Division.
Clemson and Virginia Tech seem primed for a rematch in the ACC Championship Game, as the Tigers have managed to navigate the bulk of their conference schedule with only one loss (Georgia Tech) and no improbable upset losses (fondly referred to among college football fans as "Clemsoning"). The Tigers clinched the Atlantic division with a win over Wake Forest. With only two weeks remaining and one conference game left (NC State), Clemson can now focus on beating Virginia Tech twice in a season - or will it be the Hokies winning the Coastal?
Tech holds a one game over Virginia, with the two in-state rivals scheduled to play November 26. In order for the Cavaliers to complete a truly Cinderella 2011 season, they'll first have to beat a resurgent Florida State in Tallahassee, and then beat the Hokies for first time since 2003.
