The Duke Blue Devils and Florida State Seminoles are the division leaders in the ACC after last weekend saw the final remaining undefeated team in the conference fall. Maryland was 2-0 before losing to NC State on Saturday.

Florida State was able to take the lead in the Atlantic Division with a 33-20 victory over the Miami Hurricanes. With the loss, the Hurricanes fell to 3-2 in league play and out of first in the Coastal Division. Miami's loss gave Duke the opportunity to move into the Coastal lead, as the Blue Devils took down rival North Carolina on Saturday.

Georgia Tech was able to grab its second conference win of the year with a victory over last-place Boston College. The Eagles don't have a win over an FBS opponent this season and are 0-4 in ACC play. Virginia joins them as winless in conference.

Clemson remained in the hunt for the Atlantic Division title with a dominating win over the disappointing Virginia Tech Hokies. The victory put the Tigers at 3-1, while Virginia Tech falls to 2-2 and 4-4 overall.
